I have been trained and certified in Couple/Marriage therapy. I have worked with heterosexual and same-sex couples, as well as couples in nontraditional relationships.
I can help a couple explore the problems in their relationship which can be creating feelings of rejection, abandonment, lack of understanding, betrayal, hopelessness, helplessness, and shame and guilt. I can help a couple communicate better, express their feelings and needs, and help a couple learn the coping skills and tools needed to break destructive patterns which are interfering with intimacy, trust, and the ability to feel satisfied with the relationship. I help a couple examine what each person brings to the couple dynamic. I will help each person gain knowledge about themselves, their partner, and the patterns of interaction and communication in the dynamic.
Couples therapy doesn’t work well when one or both partners are ambivalent about separation/divorce; however, Discernment Counseling can help a couple gain clarity as to what they want to do about their relationship and what the best path forward is. Discernment Counseling is a valuable process for ambivalent couples because it helps them feel more confident regarding their decision on next steps.
