Relationships are a lot of work. It's not easy for two people with two different experiences, needs, and dreams to work together to create the best life for the couple and the family. Whether help is needed during courtship, cohabitation, engagement, transition to parenthood, the parenting of children, the launching of children from the home, or redefining relationships, many difficulties can be overcome with a little help. I work with a variety of couples ranging in age, sexual orientation, race, ability, religion, acculturation, and socioeconomic status.
I work with many issues such as helping couples to improve their lives, learn to support each other, navigate decisions to continue or end a relationship, and create new, blended families. We also address effects of stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, or other issues that may be impacting the relationship.
Issues treated in couples therapy include: communication problems, parenting differences, divorce/ remarriage, drug and/or alcohol problems, trauma.
