As therapists who are happily married to each other, we are dedicated to helping you realize your potential as a couple. We believe that the work you do to develop new skills and strengthen your primary relationship also benefits your family, our society and the world at large.
Based on our years of experience, we have found that a highly personalized approach to couples therapy is the most powerful and effective. We have been trained in a variety of therapies and draw upon all of them as appropriate and useful.
Couples counseling can be a frightening prospect. On the path to adulthood, we create coping mechanisms that help us to feel safe in a threatening world. Along with our natural instinct for self-protection, we also yearn for self-fulfillment and loving connection. When our desire to love and be loved bumps up against our defense mechanisms, the resulting conflict can either be devastating or a much-needed catalyst for personal growth. As therapists, our role is to gently guide you toward working with your impulses in an enlightened rather than frightened manner. That shift enables you to create the deeper connection and lasting intimacy you crave and the growth you may not have believed possible.
