There are three main aspects of relationships that helps them thrive: Loving, Sharing and Growing. If your relationship falls short in any of these aspects, you may need couples counseling to help you get back on track.
My approach is straightforward, engaging and effective. We first discover the sources of pain and stuckness in the relationship and the recurring patterns that contribute to those problems. We then focus on enhancing the quality of loving attention and intimate sharing. Couples learn to balance the needs for closeness and separation and resolve attachment issues that stem from early experience. We work on increasing connection and engagement, and developing acceptance of self and partner.
For those couples who have reached an impasse and need to separate, I help them do so with the least amount of trauma and conflict.
If you cannot come to my office, I offer couples counseling sessions via Skype or Zoom. Joint counseling within the home environment helps couples change naturally and easily.
Personal note: I have been happily married for nearly 40 years. My relationship continues to provide both emotional and spiritual life-enhancing experiences.
