Couples Therapy is focused on the relationship.
When couples are experiencing difficulties, it’s often best to go to therapy together. Couples therapy is focused on building skills within the relationship that can allow for resolution of conflicts and the building (or rebuilding) of trust and intimacy.
I’m a therapist, not a referee or judge. I’m here to help you resolve conflicts and build the relationship that you will find mutually rewarding and satisfying.
If your partner will not go to therapy, it’s still possible for you to work on relationship issues. When one partner in a relationship changes, the nature of the relationship automatically changes. As long as you remember that by going to therapy you are working on changing yourself, not your partner, individual therapy can be an effective treatment for many relationship issues.
Common problems addressed in my practice include:
- High conflict couples
- Infertility issues
- Recovering from the aftermath of an affair or other sexual indiscretion
- Communication difficulties
- Discrepancies in sexual desire
- Unresolved anger
- Intimacy problems
