Couples Counseling

My therapy sessions with couples are powerful and transformational. I have seen tangled dynamics smooth out and I have seen people fall back in love. I have seen relationships end when they no longer served both people. The dance of intimacy is tricky and messy and uneven. Our oldest wounds surface with the same people our subconscious minds want to be healed with. But because they are such old wounds, they trigger old habits and patterns that get in the way and thwart the progress of the relationship and the individuals involved. Our work in counseling together focuses on identifying when this happens and cultivating new habits and patterns that fit with who you are now, who you want to be, and how you aspire to be loved in whatever ways truly work for you.

The situations couples come in wanting to talk about vary and are unique, but a common theme is frustration with the relationship, for whatever reason that may have started. That said, I help with a really wide range of topics and concerns:

  • Sexual concerns, lack of intimacy
  • Misunderstandings, fighting
  • Infidelity, affairs
  • Premarital or divorce counseling
  • Making decisions
  • Money concerns
  • Ethical non-monogamy, polyamory

Along the way my clients report many or all of these benefits of our work together:

  • Better communication
  • Deeper intimacy
  • Loving sense of connection
  • Empathy and desire
  • Easier time relating
  • Having more fun
