enjoy working with Couple Relationships.

Couples who I see are often struggling with various problems in their relationship, such as:

  • Poor Communication
  • Lack of Intimacy
  • Lack of Trust
  • Boredom in the Relationship
  • Infidelity Issues
  • Infertility/Adoption Issues
  • Parenting Issues
  • Blended Family Stresses
  • Empty Nest Issues
  • Financial Problems
  • Employment Issues
  • Issues related to Aging – such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s
  • Caring for Elderly Parents

The service I provide for a couple is first and foremost a safe and supportive environment where both individuals can freely express their thoughts and feelings concerning what is not working in the relationship. I also provide teaching kills in learning more effective listening and communication techniques to help strengthen the relationship. I would also have the couple establish their particular goals for the relationship, along with identifying possible individual goals they might want to accomplish that might help heal the relationship. It is important to explore with a couple what aspects of the relationship they each hope to see change with coming to therapy.
