"Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful parts of us."
- David Richo
Partnership is one of the hardest things we embark on as adults....and it takes practice, coaching, and intention. I create a safe space for couples to bring all the messiness of relationship, and together we work to identify core issues, shift relationship-sabotaging patterns, and learn how to connect with love.
In therapy, we focus on enhancing connection, deepening intimacy, restoring trust, neutralizing vicious communication cycles, navigating differing needs, and working through conflict. As we do this within our relationship, we heal as individuals.
My work with couples is based on Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and on Internal Family Systems. Both are based in research on attachment theory, and the nervous system, and help work with anxiety, anger, and other emotions triggered in relationship.This work changes people's lives for the better, even for couples who come in initially feeling very lost, lonely, and hopeless.
Couples therapy allows one of the most impactful relationships in our lives to become the vehicle for healing for each of the partners involved, and for the relationship as a whole.
