Couples therapy is intended to recognize and better manage troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress in a relationship. Therapy tends to be 'here and now' and focuses on developing communication and coping strategies. Couples therapy often deals with seemingly impossible problems and highly emotional issues. Common reasons that couples seek professional help include premarital counseling, infidelity, poor communication, a reoccurring issue, finances, difficulty with children, or because divorce is being considered.
Couples may be married or unmarried; Partners may be cis or LGBTQ. As a trained family mediator and licensed clinician, my goal is to help your family.
