My Approach

Tailored to meet your needs

I‘ve been working with couples for over 20 years. During that time, I’ve made use of various theories and methodologies to understand and improve relationships, leaving me with an eclectic approach that allows me to individualize treatment to the specific needs of each couple.

In general, however, we will begin by establishing the intention and level of commitment of each person. For those wanting to move forward, the restoration of hope is the first element of good counseling as people invest in that which they believe. We will then establishing a vision for the relationship, which incorporates the views and needs of both members.

During sessions, I maintain solid control such that all communication occurs in a respectful manner, with the goal of being productive. Together, we will clarify your wishes and goals, identify and resolve key issues, improve communication skills, reduce the incidences and intensity of conflict and, most importantly, help you to reestablish your emotional and physical connection (It simply isn’t true that that goes away with time!).

I view couples counseling as a collaborative effort and I use a strong team approach to get quick results. I am very involved in the session at all times and will honestly communicate to you what I see, feel and think. I will become a temporary partner in your relationship – to move you past the grief and sadness to a place of hope and enthusiasm, to lift and to stabilize you, to help you find your way back to where you began, to teach you the skills needed to resolve conflicts with respect and compromise, and to help you reignite the passion that’s been lost. Doing so is a process that takes a bit of time, usually about three months. Hence, I find it best for treatment to begin intensively and to taper as you as a couple become stronger and need less support. Follow-up sessions to maintain your gains are scheduled to help you maintain your gains.

From you, I need a serious commitment to our work in terms of time (kept appointments) and energy (your investment in between sessions), as well as an ability to be honest with your thoughts and open with your feelings.

With you and I working together as a team, there is an excellent chance that we can make your relationship better and more fulfilling.
