You feel lonely in your relationship.

You argue about the same things and feel like you can never resolve these conflicts.

Every time you try to talk to your partner about the things that are important to you, the conversation gets stuck because of criticism, defensiveness, and other negative patterns that show up in your interactions.

You are tired of arguing and find yourself shutting down and disconnecting from your partner more and more.

You feel like you don’t know each other anymore and are wondering if you even want the same things.

You want to nurture your relationship and watch it grow.

You have invested so much time in building your relationship, but you struggle to establish good communication. You try so hard to understand who they are, and how you can best work with them. You would like to learn something about yourself – how and why you attach and relate the way that you do, what your triggers are and how to work with them, understand your relationship patterns and learn how to change the ones that are not working well for you in your relationship – all important parts that make a relationship fulfilling.

You may feel like you should be able to figure our your relationship problems on your own. You may worry about what your family and friends will think if they find out you are in couples therapy. You might even believe that you are a failure because you can not make things work on your own.

It’s okay to get help when you are trying to improve the most important relationship in your life.

The reality is that relationships are complex. We come into them from different backgrounds and bring our own baggage and expectations with us. In some cases, we haven’t had good role models growing up to show us how healthy relationships work.

Relationships are a language, and you have to take the time to teach each other how to speak it.

We are expected to know just know how to make relationships work, how to get along, how to communicate well, and we often struggle to figure it out on our own.

In reality, there is a lot that goes into making a relationship work and often we need help navigating it.

I guide you through this process by helping you learn better ways of communicating, relating, and understanding each other.

Some Concerns You May Have About Therapy

What if our family and friends find out that we are in therapy? You can be a role model for your family and kids by showing them how you prioritize your relationship by getting help to improve and grow together as a couple.

We are already so busy that making another time commitment is overwhelming. I offer online therapy through a secure HIPAA-compliant video platform and am often able to work around your kids’ schedules by having our sessions during your kids’ naps or after they have gone to bed.

How long do we have to be in therapy to make progress on our communication? Most of the couples I work with start communicating better in just a few weeks after starting therapy.

I am afraid that couples therapy will uncover issues in our relationship that we will not be able to fix. Every couple I have worked with comes to their first session sharing that they are anywhere from feeling nervous to terrified about starting couples therapy. So you are not alone in feeling that way. I navigate this process with you in a very gentle, yet challenging way that will get you the results that you want. Clients usually feel a lot more at ease after our first session.

Let’s get started.

If you are struggling with communication, feeling alone while together, and want to be heard by your partner and heal the relationship – give me a call. The couples who work with me see great improvements in their communication and the relationship overall in just a few sessions. I look forward to helping you with your relationship goals.



Married or dating, together or individually, I will work with you on repairing, reconnecting and creating a happy and satisfying relationship.
