I see many couples who are struggling in their relationships, and may even be in crisis after a breach in trust (sometimes after an affair).
Treatment focuses on dealing with the immediate feelings of hurt and betrayal, identifying and addressing the issues and dysfunctional dynamics that lead to the breach in trust, and working towards making a roadmap to re-establish trust and intimacy.
I will work with both partners on making positive changes to better the relationship. We will work on accepting what cannot be changed and changing what can be changed.
Often by the time couples come into my office, they have become quite polarized in their positions. At this point they frequently need an objective third party to intervene.
I tend to be very direct and pragmatic in an effort to make progress in a short amount of time.
I really enjoy doing couples work. Despite it’s challenges, it is very rewarding to help couples move past crises and deepen their connection.
