My Philosophy of Couple Therapy

Thanks for seeking some information about doing couple therapy with me.

My guess is that you have been finding it hard to resolve issues between you.

Have you ever noticed that you have the same arguments repeatedly, and that you long for resolution to them?

Couple relationships can be an incredibly healing experience full of deep connection and intimacy, or they can be full of longing, disappointment, repeated frustrations, or even deep sadness and despondency about the lack of connection you have with one another.

Have you ever wondered what happened to the person you first met, or are you and your partner having frequent conflict?

You are not alone.

Do you ever feel like you are just roommates, and get tired of it?

An affair, or porn use, or some other source of mistrust has put your relationship into crisis.
You feel at a loss as to how to build trust back into your relationship.

You long for more closeness and support from one another.

If any of this is happening to you, it’s not your fault. Couple relationships are difficult and challenging, though they don’t always feel so at first.

With guidance and support I can help you to have the kind of relationship you’ve always longed for.

Don’t keep going it alone. Start the process of improving your relationship now.
