Couples
Therapy

Effective couples therapy requires an experienced therapist who truly understands what’s missing in your relationship. Couples therapy will help guide you through a journey of reconnecting and enhancing your relationship. In our therapy sessions the focus is on helping you understand what your fights are really all about.  In understanding what’s really going on, this helps you to shape your relationship into a more secure, stronger, and fulfilling relationship.   Whether you are dealing with on-going conflict, communication issues, loss of connection, or violations of trust, contact me today.

​The decision to seek couples counseling requires a commitment of your time, emotional capacity and finances.  Couples therapy is not meant to be quick and easy.  Couples therapy is not just about learning skills to communicate, it's a space to help couples see how their reactions or lack of responsiveness impact each other.  In addition, it's a space for couples to support and rely on one another for healing the hurts that have occurred throughout the course of their relationship.

 

I use a model of therapy called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which is a cutting edge model that has been proven to help couples restore their emotional bond.  You can read more about Emotionally Focused Therapy here or by visiting: https://iceeft.com

I welcome all couples of any race, ethnicity, gender expression, and sexual orientation.

While it is hard to pre-determine how many sessions you will need; here is how our sessions are typically structured:

 

Session 1 & 2 (60 minutes, couple)

Session 3 & 4 (60 mins, individual session)

Session 4+ (60 mins, couple)

I recommend weekly sessions for couples.  

In our work together, we will work towards the following therapeutic goals:

  • Gain an overview of the feelings in your relationship

  • Move out of a position of blaming and attacking one another 

  • Understand how you interact and impact your partner and the impact it has on your relationship.

  • Accept that you both carry the responsibility to create a safer space for more openness, engagement, and responsiveness towards one another.

  • Work on having transformative conversations that will help you share your feelings, deepen your understanding, longings, and desires for one another.

  • Discuss ways to build your relationship and create lasting change.

Because emotional safety is essential to our work together, I am unable to work with the following:

  • People who cannot commit to creating and maintaining a safe environment (continual yelling, cursing, hx of emotional abuse/physical violence, continually threating to end relationship)

  • People with untreated mental health or addiction issues that severely impact the relationship. 

  • People who are engaged in on-going extramarital affairs or relationships without intention of stopping.  I can work with healing after an affair, as long as the affair is over.

  • People who do not agree to meet with me for an individual session during the assessment process. 

                       Couples therapy is a private pay investment of $200 per 60 minute session.
