"Out beyond the ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing, there lies a field.  I'll meet you there."
                                                                                                                      - Rumi

I am certified in both the Gottman Method of Couples’ Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples’ Therapy. These are the two leading edge models of couples therapy. I am also certified as a supervisor of Emotionally Focused Couples' Therapy.

With couples, I begin with an assessment of their relationship which includes the friendship system, the conflict system, and the meanings system.  From there we begin working on the cycles of interaction that maintain distress in the relationship and move to create change events that usher in new, healthier patterns, as well as teach the concepts and tools that maintain these patterns.


    My expertise with couples includes:

  • improving communication and connection
  • building friendship and emotional intimacy
  • breaking repetitive and distressing cycles of interaction
  • constructive conflict resolution
  • balancing autonomy and intimacy
  • stress and anger management
  • parenting
  • sexuality
  • pre-marital counseling
  • resolving attachment issues
  • working with depression, anxiety, and ADHD in the context of a relationship
  • healing shame, trauma, grief, affairs, and other issues that have impacted a relationship. 
I also help individuals recover from traumatic and addictive relationships.
