Intimate relationships are one of the most important and defining parts of our lives. Learning to understand each other, empathize and communicate is vital to any successful relationship. In therapy, we will work on learning new ways of relating to your partner with compassion, love and respect.
Couples often come to therapy seeking help because everything else they have tried has not worked. It can be so easy to get stuck in negative cycles full of criticism, fear, and feelings of hopelessness. Therapy is a safe place to address, process and learn new ways of relating to each other. When working with couples, I coach each partner by teaching new ways to communicate feelings, wants and needs within the relationship, while also addressing and exploring the underlying need for love, security, acceptance and attachment from each partner.
