Often in couple therapy we focus in the beginning on changing the dynamics of communication. Learning tools to communicate effectively, including identifying and expressing feelings, sharing needs and wants, and establishing boundaries will change the way you relate to others in profound ways. Feeling comfortable and confident in communication mechanics can help you to tackle deeper or longstanding issues that are getting in the way of intimacy, joy, and connection. We will most likely explore your intimate relationship history, attachment styles, and unspoken relationship expectations in a way that feels supportive and healing. I love working with couples and seeing how making even the smallest changes can have major impacts. I’m comfortable working with traditional as well as non-traditional couples and relationship structures, and am polyamory/consensual non-monogamy and kink friendly.
Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:
- Blended Families and Parenting
- Disability or Chronic Health Concerns
- Divorce or Separation
- Mental Health Concerns
- Poly Relationship Dynamics
- Sex and Sexuality
- Communication Challenges or Frequent Conflict
