The relationships in our lives can bring us so much joy and happiness but also pain and sadness. Often couples find themselves with some combination of these emotional extremes. It’s common for relationships to struggle sometimes.
I feel passionate about supporting couples in creating healthy relationships. I support couples in both traditional and non-traditional relationships with premarital counseling, marital counseling, and domestic-partnership counseling. I work with couples to build mutual respect and trust. Together, we can work towards creating and maintaining healthy and emotionally intelligent relationships.
More specific goals of couples therapy may include: deepening connection, building empathy, reducing destructive communication, increasing healthy communication, and increasing mutual understanding and trust. I can also provide Prepare Enrich premarital counseling and Brining Baby Home counseling and workshops.
Premarital: Prepare Enrich Assessment and Counseling
I work with couples considering marriage, engaged couples, who are interested in preparing themselves to have a healthy and successful marriage. I also work with couples who have been committed or married for many years who are in a place where they would like to enrich their relationship. I use the prepare-enrich assessment survey and work with the couple to identify the strengths in their relationship as well as areas in need of growth.
