Although having a partner in life is wonderful, it also poses many challenges. Conflicts are an inevitable part of marriage or any intimate relationship. When working with couples, I integrate Gottman Method Couples Therapy with cognitive and behavioral approaches to build relational skills and help partners stay connected, even during conflict and difficult life transitions.
Counseling for couples can be demanding! It requires that each partner look at his or her contribution to relationship issues. I commonly assign partners new behavioral practices that need to be carried out between sessions. If you are ready for lasting change in yourself and your relationship, call me to discuss how couples therapy can help.
