A large portion of my psychotherapy practice involves working with couples (both straight and gay) to resolve problems in their relationship and foster greater intimacy. I truly love this work. Couples saving a marriage or relationship or those seeking an amicable dissolution will find me unbiased in my attitude towards each person and an active participant. By providing perspective, I strive to illuminate dynamics in the relationship and then to help bring about desired changes. The foundation of this work involves improving communication. I help couples hear each other empathically, while also asserting their needs and expressing their feelings in a way that can be heard by the other person.
Relationship counseling involves focusing on both individual and couples’ issues. Through this work, couples often come to see and have the opportunity to heal individual longstanding issues. During this hour of therapy, couples communicate with one another in more honest and heart-felt ways and develop the skills to continue relating intimately.
