Are you and your partner feeling disconnected? Maybe you’ve been arguing a lot these days. Or perhaps you want to strengthen your relationship and learn the skills to prevent problems before they even begin. You're ready to experience new ways of connecting with each other, but aren't sure where to start. Couples therapy is a space where you and your partner can explore what a fulfilling relationship looks like for you. You're in the right place if you want to work on communicating productively, reducing conflict, increasing understanding, building trust, navigating differences, and deepening intimacy and connection.
I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Gottman Method Couples Therapy. These approaches aim to help you identify the patterns in your relationship that are keeping you stuck and discover strategies to break free from those patterns, deepen your connection, and navigate life as a team.
My therapeutic style is characterized by a direct, collaborative, and conversational approach. Couples I work with appreciate my ability to challenge them with compassion, warmth, and even humor. My practice welcomes a diverse range of couples, including LGBTQIA+, multicultural, and polyamorous couples. Visit my website today to book a free consultation!
