Relationships are hard work and heart work. They are designed to support you in feeling connected yet also healing wounds from your past childhood that your partner can trigger. Relationships give us so much love and joy, yet at other times they can feel frustrating and challenging. I believe that in order to have a successful and satisfying relationship, you need to understand how relationships work and what your purpose is for being in a relationship.
I have trained in several modalities for couples work including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), IMAGO, and Psychobiological Approach To Couples Therapy (PACT). I offer couples therapy that meets you where you are in your relationship. I focus on supporting couples in learning how to be the expert in your partner. It is about giving you the skills and tools to practice how to better listen, attune to and tend to your partner’s needs while also getting your needs met.
It is easy to fall in love, the real work is in building a secure functioning relationship that increases your sense of purpose, safety, and vitality in the world.
Every couple is unique yet most couples face similar challenges. In working with couples, I like to have an initial session to get a sense of what the challenges are that you and your partner are facing. Then, I meet individually with each partner to get a better sense of attachment style and relationship history to support in creating a clear path toward building the relationship you desire. Moving from there, we work together to support you in answering the following
Regardless of gender or sexuality, relationships are about having a secure connection. All couples whether gay, straight, or polyamorous, seek harmony, connection, love, validation, and safety. The gender of the partner is not the issue. Developing a strong and secure partnership is the goal.
Relationships that are successful and rooted in honesty, trust, collaboration, and cooperation. I work with couples to support in developing an understanding of what your relationship is healthy and successful.
