How can we best guard each others hearts while continuing to grow on our own? How do we change together as we become parents, lose loved ones or find out more about who we are? Our relationships are the clearest mirrors of all the tension between freedom and safety.
Couples therapy allows partners to understand each other more deeply, to air the ghosts of the past that limit us, to prepare for transitions such as marriage or the birth or adoption of a child, and to prevent current issues from becoming intractable patterns. At times, couples therapy provides a way to separate with kindness and respect.
I have helped couples with issues including:
- Premarital Counseling
- Parenting and Intimacy
- Parenting Children with Chronic Illness
- Separation and Divorce
- Sexuality and Intimacy
- Adoption Process and Parenting
