About

I know it may feel like all hope is lost. You’ve hit a wall in your relationship, and you don’t see a way around it. You desperately want your partner to see you, and you wish you could understand them. It feels like you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle. Many couples go through this, and it’s a pretty painful experience. You want to make it work, but have no idea how. Fortunately, you can still improve your relationship. Even if you’ve dealt with distance, infidelity, or communication problems for years, you can heal together. You and your partner can learn to leave the resentment behind, and get back to your life together.
I use one of the most effective therapies for couples, The Gottman Method. It’s a flexible approach that will help you find each other again. You’ll start by rebuilding your friendship, and gradually work through patterns like repeated arguments. You’ll learn how to communicate and listen better, but also how to accept and understand yourselves as a couple.
What if your relationship could be more peaceful, and less painful? What if you could feel heard and seen, rather than forgotten and unappreciated? I have no doubt that if you put the work in, your relationship can be stronger and happier than it’s ever been. When you’re ready, call for a consultation to get started.
