Couples

Therapy

Couples therapy is great for relationships at any stage; dating, engaged or married. As a marriage and family therapist, I am trained to attend to your unique experiences as a couple. Trained in Gottman Couples Therapy, I look at the foundation of your relationship, how you communicate about expectations, values, and everyday things so that you can disarm some of the negative patterns you currently have.

Topics I address:

  • Premarital Counseling

  • Communication problems

  • Relationship Contracting

  • Strengthening the marriage

  • Building a stronger foundation for marriage.

  • Infidelity

  • Intimacy

  • Sex therapy

  • Codependency

  • Building trust

  • Not sure if its time for a separation

  • healing old wounds

  • Regaining a sense of excitement after being married for years

  • Building the couple relationship after the children have left the house

 

Topics I do not address:

  • Domestic Violence: Studies have shown that couples therapy is not beneficial for couples that have ACTIVE domestic violence especially because it can create safety issues. As such, if I know that you are in an active domestic violence relationship, I will refer you for individual therapy instead.

The cost for couples therapy is $200. Please note that couples therapy is NOT generally covered by health insurance plans.
