In working with couples, I encourage each individual to skillfully regulate and communicate authentically and nonjudgmentally, taking responsibility for their own experience and mindfully connecting in the present moment, learning from history, achieving closure on the past, and moving into the future with shared values, goals, and interests. My approach balances validation for understanding and concrete strategies for change based on behavioral principles, such as reinforcement and exposure. These interventions are grounded in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), including radically open DBT, which specifically focuses on cultivating intimacy. Each individual's temperament, personality, and emotional patterns are taken into account to move to a middle ground for centered balance and fulfillment.
