About Me

I have many years of experience working with couples and I have a track record of consistently helping couples achieve their relationship goals. I use a wide variety of theoretical approaches including: cognitive-behavioral therapy, communications-oriented family therapy, reality therapy, and behavioral couples therapy. I believe that couples need to learn how to get on the same wave-length in order to resolve their communication problems. Part of the therapist's job is to be an emotions translator for the couple until they learn how to effectively communicate with one another. I also think couples counseling is about teaching conflict-resolution, problem-solving, and communication skills so that the couple can eventually learn how to work through their problems without the help of a counselor. I also work on helping the couple rekindle the fire in the relationship that got them together in the first place. If you really want a happy, fulfilling relationship with your partner, I would be happy to help you achieve that goal!
