Couple Counseling

I will see a limited number of couples seeking to resolve relationship problems.

My approach is, at first, solution focused. I will want to know what is happening when things are going well and how that can be enhanced. Then we need to identify the patterns of communication and behavior that are so unsatisfactory. It is this pattern that is the problem rather than one partner or the other. Once the pattern is identified we need to determine how to stop it and what to do instead that will produce good results, allowing the couple to resolve conflict and to reconnect in a secure and satisfying way.

Sometimes couples are considering divorce but want to give counseling a serious try first. Sometimes couples are looking for better ways to relate to each other.
