Relational Couples Counseling
I believe couples therapy is a way to create stronger partnerships as well as stronger individuals. Couples therapy can serve as individual therapy with your partner present, where you both are learning ways to walk in the world that promote making connections and building healthy relationships.
I am a certified Realtional Life Therapist. Created by Terry Real, the author of The New Rules For Marriage, RLT therapy cuts to the chase with couples issues, getting to the heart of the problem quickly and effectively.
I became a couples therapist in part because I received wonderful couples counseling that rescued my own marriage. It taught me how to be a more relational person and to see the good and bad ways I interact with everyone in my life.
I would love to help you to turn your relationship around, with yourself and with your partner! Please note that I am a "hands-on" therapist. This means I will be direct with you if I see ways you might be harming to your relationship or diminishing of your partner...but I promise I will do it respectfully and I'll admit to my own failings as well! Respectful living can be challenging at times, but it is so rewarding if you're willing to let go of blame and resentment.
