As a child, I witnessed my parents struggle through several unhealthy partnerships. Because of this experience, I’ve spent much of my adult life studying what it takes to have a healthy relationship.
I’ve applied what I’ve learned to my own marriage and the relationships of the many couples I’ve worked with. The results are amazing. I’m passionate about my belief that a couple can have a healthy, fulfilling, loving connection regardless of their past experiences.
Relationships don’t come with instructions. We must navigate them based on what we know about ourselves, our partners and the behaviors we witnessed growing up. In my work with couples, we explore patterns of behavior, beliefs about self and others, that may not be a part of your day to day awareness.
Often, when I work with a couple, one partner is less excited about the prospect of counseling than the other. That’s okay. I work to create a safe, nurturing environment for both partners. I respect that you may both be in different places and may require different things from me as we work together.
My goal is to provide you both with resources, insight, relationship skills and support as we work through unresolved issues and strengthen the foundation of your relationship.
