“The Game of Love is Complicated...

but Love is not Complicated

–Marty Rubin

Couples/Marital/Relationship Counseling

Our relationships can be the most fulfilling, exciting, and stabilizing experiences in our lives… and they can be the most chaotic, frustrating, and confounding things in our lives.  This is why more and more couples are seeking out help from a professional therapist these days.

I hear it a lot that one or both partners are worried that they will be blamed for the couple's problems in a therapy session. These couples learn quickly that my role is not to decide who's right or wrong, or to declare one of you the "winner". My role is to help you figure out what you both are really fighting for, and to help you communicate that truth and be heard with the dignity and acceptance that you both deserve. I recommend that you come in for an initial consultation and experience what couples therapy may be able to offer you. Whatever initially brings you in for couples therapy...


Relationship Counseling Can Help You To:

  • Communicate in ways that allow you and your partner to understand each other
  • Become emotionally available to your partner
  • Disagree with each other without escalating
  • Get back on the same team, work together constructively
  • Understand the experience of your partner, and be understood by your partner
  • Identify, express, and negotiate your needs authentically and non-reactively
  • Develop practices that will support and nurture your life as a couple
  • Develop your capacity for intimacy and trust, feel close again
  • Cope with or address infertility, infidelity, sexual difficulties, divorce, remarriage, financial or employment stresses, loss, grief, parenting conflicts, cultural tensions, a personal history of trauma, depression, anxiety, disability, illness, care-giving or aging, or any other source of stress or adjustment in your lives

I work with all varieties of relationships, including same-sex, heterosexual, gender-diverse, polyamorous, and cross-cultural relationships. I also provide counseling for non-romantic relationships, including families, friends, coworkers, co-parents, and others who are seeking assistance to improve their patterns of relating. Please contact me and I’ll be glad to consult with you about your particular situation and needs.
