"As a couples therapist, I strive to help individuals feel safe enough to hold each other's hands and not let go."
Relationships can be very difficult when partners act in hurtful ways towards each other. My focus is to help each person understand their partner's emotional/internal happenings, as well as their own, in order to understand why the negative interaction cycle exists, and ways to heal. I practice Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I practice Discernment Counseling to help couples in deciding if they would like to work on their relationship in Couples Therapy or begin the end of their relationship.
Before you officially get married--I will help you and your partner change any of your negative interactions/arguments. I will guide you through learning communication skills; as well as help you understand how to uniquely understand your partner and fulfill their emotional needs.
