Couples counseling is a rewarding investment in your relationship. Our work together will give you a safe place to identify and overcome obstacles to satisfying intimacy and connection. Often complaints, dissatisfactions and even deep wounding are the starting place for finding greater relational fulfillment. Together we will identify the underlying needs and impulses in difficult encounters and patterns of relating, transforming these struggles into positive possibilities.

Couples often come to therapy for help in making life changing decisions regarding:

  • getting married
  • having children
  • staying together or not
  • any choice where the partners feel polarized

Couples may also come to therapy for healing when:

  • there has been an affair or betrayal
