COUPLES THERAPY

It can be unnerving to realize an intimate relationship that was once a pleasurable experience is now a source of tension and conflict.  In our culture, we often see marriage or long-term commitment as a fixed agreement between two people, when in fact every relationship has a developmental trajectory that requires change and, above all, brave and honest communication.  Together, we will explore the factors that are causing concern within your unique partnership in a safe and non-judgmental framework.  

I have experience working with a diverse range of adult couples as they negotiate sensitive and often frightening moments in the life-span of their relationship such as:

  • Feelings of loneliness or dissatisfaction

  • Thoughts of separation or divorce

  • Infidelity

  • A recent disclosure or discovery of a major secret

  • Reduced romantic desire

  • A partner's desire to "open" the relationship to polyamory 

  • A partner's desire to transition gender

  • Financial strain or conflict surrounding money

  • Sexual dissatisfaction or non-aligned sexual preferences

  • Anxiety involving pregnancy decisions, infertility, or parenting styles

  • Political disagreements 

If you are struggling with any of the above problems in your relationship, please reach out to me for a consultation today.  While couples work is often not for the faint of heart, in my experience there is no reward for suffering.  I have witnessed the profound benefits in opening up channels of bold and new ways of communicating with oneself and one's partner.
