Individual and Couples Therapy

Relationships can be wonderful.  They can also be elusive, difficult, gut wrenching and confusing. The good news is that most problems are solvable and relationships skills can be learned regardless of your background.   

Whatever relationship goal brings you here, welcome!

Sometimes  a formerly good relationship hits a difficult stage.  New issues arise, new skills are needed.   

Sometimes even our best intentions to communicate better, argue less, be more loving can be difficult to actually carry out out.  When relationships are in crisis, couples can get locked in to frustrating arguments event with the best intentions to change.

Individuals seek therapy to figure out why they struggle to create or sustain long term relationships and to clear blocks to prepare for a future intimate relationship. 

Other times couples therapy is sought out  to end an important relationship, to reduce conflict during separation or divorce, to “consciously uncouple.”
