In couples therapy I will work with both partners together to address issues of communication, intimacy, and connection (among other things). I will spend time getting to know each of you and understanding your unique backgrounds in addition to exploring how you interact with one another. I am there to be on both of your sides. Having a neutral mediator can be a powerful tool in helping you and your partner communicate directly to one another about what is causing distress in your relationship. This in an important skill in any relationship, whether you are currently struggling, or are just looking to strengthen your relationship in the long run.
Couples sessions last 80 minutes and I generally recommend that you plan for a session every 1-2 weeks in order to keep up your momentum and to get the most from your counseling experience.
