Couples
& Families

I do my best to see couples and families as the complex, dynamic systems they are. Relationship troubles are usually influenced by numerous factors (life transitions, genetics, family histories, individual preferences and expectations, communication, etc.), all of which might give useful insight into the current dilemma. In couples counseling, I strive to hold all of these pieces in their influential roles in the problem and then find ways to offer useful shifts in the directions you prefer.

I've trained in Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and use it when it seems to fit your goals for therapy. If not, I use other methods (hypnosis, experiential activities, therapeutic conversation) to invite new ways of being with each other both in and outside of the therapy room.
