 Couples Counseling


Bickering, Unresolved Fights, Emotional Distance, Sexual Issues, Infidelity, Cheating, Sexual Issues, Addiction, Trauma, Isolation, Lack of Social Support- Our relationships can face many challenges and cause us to turn away rather than turning toward each other.


Do you dislike who you've become in your relationship?  Are you tired of that same fight over and over again? Sad, lonely or scared, and missing the couple you used to be?  The hurting needs to stop now and you need to be heard, understood, respected.. 


I help couples cut through the pain and anger to a harmonious, caring relationship. I offer a space where partners are safe, accepted, heard and understood… where you are challenged and held accountable to bring your best to the relationship in new ways so that you can both enjoy the relationship that you deserve and are capable of. Rather than repeatedly sparking unfriendly fires you can reignite romance and passion, feel energized, safe and accepted.


Protect the Love You Have  with premarital counseling. Learn tools to weather lifes ups and downs together. Deepen your love, acceptance with relationship skills that last a lifetime. I use an integrated, research based approach informed by Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, John Gottman's Relationship House, and Harville Hendrix's Imago approach.
