couples counseling


Why it is important to seek help now?


Couples often wait an average of six years from the time they identify problems in their relationship until they seek help (Notarius & Buongiorno, 1992). 

By then, the problems deepen, opposing positions become more entrenched, feelings become deeply hurt, and the task of recovery is much greater. 

Evidence- based couples therapy can make significant improvements in your relationship. 


Couples Therapy Benefits

I have expertise working with couples; helping couples learn how to form and maintain better relationships. 

Couples therapy can help partners explore ways to keep their relationship healthy and strong. We all imagine a lifetime of happiness when we first make the commitment to each other, but we know that challenges arise in our relationships that may make this difficult. 

You can find happiness in your relationship by resolving conflict and enhancing your closeness.

Couples therapy will help both partners:
- Learn effective ways to talk about tough topics
- Strengthen your relational bond  
- Enhance communication
- Resolve conflict and repair from conflict  
- Improve intimacy and/or closeness
