In couples counseling I work with you and your partner to improve communication and problem solving skills. Love and affection is revitalized through a process of mutual sharing that builds trust and understanding. You expand and grow your knowledge and appreciation of each other as individuals with different needs, desires, expectations and ways of expressing love, support and interest.
Through this work you become less defensive and more open and trusting. You learn how to effectively manage the natural anxiety and fears that intimate relationships generate. You begin to use humor, affection and compassion when dealing with differences that require ongoing communication and adjustments.
You leave with a fuller awareness and appreciation of yourself and your partner and with skills that nurture and grow a satisfying, resilient and loving relationship.
You build bridges instead of walls.
