I am sure you have heard people say, “Marriage is work.” I completely agree with this! But, most people are not taught what work needs to be done to have a successful marriage. To learn your job or trade, you go to school or are trained on the job by an expert. To learn a sport, you have a coach that teaches you, provides drills, and makes you practice. You see where I am going here, right?
As a couples therapist, I am here to help you learn skills that will make your marriage stronger. I specialize in working with couples at every stage in their relationship, from those who just want a relationship check-up to those who are on the brink of divorce. I am here to help you learn to communicate, resolve conflict and feel and show love again.
In particular, I specialize in working with couples who have experienced infidelity. I am an expert in helping each partner decide the direction they want to go with the marriage and assist in the necessary healing to move forward. Infidelity does not mean a marriage is over.
My areas of specialty for couples
- Communication problems
- Loss of intimacy
- Lack of connection
- Decisions about divorce/discernment counseling
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
