Understanding and enhancing the parts that unite you as a couple
I work with all couples who want to mindfully address the themes of their relationships, ensuring that needs are met both individually and in their identity as a couple leading to a deeper commitment and a more satisfying relationship.
We cover areas dealing with habits including alcohol and substance use or abuse, sexuality, fidelity, family of origin differences, core values including religion and spirituality, time together and time apart, roles, chores, the choices about desire to have children and how the parenting may differ amongst others. This work done well early on assures greater ease and happiness and also the door is kept open for whatever life brings or old issues that may have arisen.
Areas of focus with couples encompass a broad spectrum of issues and approaches that include:
- Behavioral/Mood changes
- Career stress
- Dealing with life transitions
- LGBTQ affirmative therapy
- Multicultural themes
- Polyamory and alternative lifestyles
- Pre-marital therapy
- Religious and spiritual differences
- Sexless relationship
- Sexual/Gender Identity
- Starting a family, going from two to three
