Do you feel alone in your relationship? Do you find yourself longing for closeness and intimacy? When our relationship is off balance it often impacts everything else in our life.
In relationship conflict, a cycle emerges as one partner that senses disconnection attempts to be seen and heard, sometimes with urgency, and the other shuts down, trying to prevent further conflict. The issues that couples often fight about become the focus of this cycle and it can spin round and round out of control as each individual tries to “fix” it in their own way.
Whether it’s affair recovery, a newly discovered addiction, intimacy concerns, parenting conflicts, or another deeply painful experience, I can help you navigate these waters in a non-pathologizing way that yields greater connection and decreased distress. I use several evidenced-based approaches in couples therapy including Emotionally Focused Therapy that will help you get beyond the issues at the surface in order to uncover the true longings beneath; Longings for reassurance, trust, and true connectedness.
We are all looking to feel safe and secure in our close relationships and I love helping couples get the relationships that they desire and deserve.
