About

Many couples live with the myth that a loving relationship should be easy, effortless -- and if it isn't, something is seriously wrong and perhaps the relationship just wasn't meant to be. I approach couples therapy from a different point of view - that it takes hard work to sustain an authentic intimate relationship. I make frequent use of concepts and tools from leaders in the field: Sue Johnson, the Gottmans, Stan Tatkin, and Esther Perel. I also use a somatic approach, paying close atttention to the information available in couples' bodies - how does a couple turn toward or away from each other? How do they touch each other? Often these small, non-verbal ways of connecting are the 'missing things' that a couple just can't figure out, but also can't live without. I work with couples of all types and support consensual intimacy and commitment wherever it is to be found. I welcome couples of all genders and sexual orientations, those working with polyamory or open relationship styles, those pursuing alternative family structures, and those who are nourished by BDSM and other alternative practices and communities. Come just as you are - to discover who you can become.
