Couples Therapy is my Specialty! 90% of my practice is couples therapy. I work with couples who are newly married, getting remarried, recently had a baby, been together for 20 + years, gay couples, straight couples, couples who have been distressed for many years and couples who are only beginning to notice cracks and hoping to get in front of it. I also help couples who have decided to end their relationship.
Together we figure out what are the areas of strength in your relationship and what are areas that need improvement. We will look at the patterns and cycles of communication and conflict that trip you up and cause you to stop hearing one another. Read More

It is important for couples to find this again so that they do not begin living parallel lives and they become business partners instead of loving, intimate, lifelong partners. Read More
