Working with a COUPLES SPECIALIST gives you the BEST CHANCE to heal your relationship.

“Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it.”

FOCUS & PASSION

My practice is completely focused on serving couples. Working with couples can be challenging when compared to individual counseling. Don't settle for a therapist who helps couples on the side. By only working with couples, I believe that I am better equipped to help you. 

AFFAIR RECOVERY

My #1 sub-specialty is walk with couples through a structured AFFAIR RECOVERY PROCESS.

 

Because infidelity profoundly damages the trust at the center of a couple’s connection, we will rebuild the relationship so you have a new foundation that is rooted in a completely new understanding of yourselves. All the while, you will need a safe, non-judgmental place to process the anger, sadness, guilt, shame and blame, among so many other swirling emotions.

 

With hard work and humility, you will find a path to a new understanding of the affair, and to grieving and healing together.

NEURODIVERSE COUPLES

My #2 sub-specialty is helping NEURODIVERSE COUPLES learn how to stop blaming each other and, instead, discover new ways to consistently connect with each other.

This requires a deep understanding and appreciation of Asperger's and a specialized approach when engaging with the couple. Working with neurodiverse couples is a meaningful part of my practice that I truly enjoy because the relief from hopelessness can be so powerful.

COUPLES TRAINING

I have received specialized training in couples therapy as part of my Doctorate of Clinical Psychology (PsyD) and Master's in Counseling Psychology (MA). I am also licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and teach marriage therapy to graduate students as an Adjunct Professor.

COUPLES THERAPY CONTENT LIBRARY

In order to improve in any area in life, it is important to have the basic skills and to know the fundamentals. Most couples think that this doesn't apply to relationships but, actually, it can make a huge difference. 

I have developed a Couples Content Library which is full of exercises for couples that will help you master the fundamentals of healthy  relationships. You will be trained on tools that apply to your situation. Also, you will have access to the entire suite of tools to use at your convenience, even after we have ended therapy together. 

EXTEND THERAPY BETWEEN SESSIONS

Many therapists work with you in their office and then just hope you can "REMEMBER" the experience. With me, after each session, you will walk out of my office with clearly explained tasks to attempt at home.

In fact, you will do far more work between sessions than during sessions. This way you can find out what really works in your real life. Couples tell me that this makes a difference in maintaining their progress over years, not just for a few months while in therapy. 

EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES - EMOTION-FOCUSED THERAPY

I use scientifically-validated psychotherapy techniques for couples which have been proven effective through decades of research with thousands of couples. My core approach is built on Emotion-Focused Therapy-EFT with components of Gottman Method and Imago Therapy added in when it is helpful.

 

There are no guarantees but having an experienced couples therapist applying an evidence-based approach gives you a realistic chance to reach your goals.

TOUGH ISSUES: STRUCTURE + TENDER HEART

I am often the third or fourth couples counselor for a couple because I take on "tough" cases that have been difficult for other therapists.

 

In these situations, I work hard to create a safe healing environment so we can productively deal with extremely challenging situations. In fact, the tougher the situation, the more tenderness is needed. 

 

Some of the difficult cases included:

SPIRITUAL FOUNDATION

I believe that all people, no matter what they believe, are worthy of love and respect. Because of this, I promise to fully accept you exactly as you are, expecting to see both amazing strengths and glaring imperfections.

 

Bringing your spiritual journey into therapy is COMPLETELY your choice. My aim is to serve you as a trustworthy resource for professional care whether you have a faith background or not.

OVER 3 DECADES OF MARRIAGE EXPERIENCE

Being married for 36 years and having raised children to adulthood, I have certainly made my fair share of mistakes and have learned how to turn that into growth. My work with you is built upon decades of real life experience, not just textbook knowledge.
