"The self is a social creation, and it is defined,
maintained and transformed with reference to others."
- L. Alan Sroufe
Wanting help in your relationship is okay.
A good relationship takes effort and commitment. Many of us did not witness healthy or functional relationships and the tales we are told through television and movies isn't reality. I am trained in the Gottman approach for couple therapy. I combine my training in attachment theory with the Gottman approach to help couples come to a better understanding of each other.
I will meet with you as a couple and then with each of you individually before coming back together as a couple for therapy. This way I can get to know each of you by listening to your personal narrative and your hopes for your relationship. I support each individual to feel safe and to express what they think and feel. I can help you to:
Change difficult, entrenched relationship patterns
Deal effectively with conflict, anger, anxieties and resentment
Learn to communicate effectively
Understand one another in a deeper way
Resolve commitment issues
Transition into new phases in the family life cycle
I am LGBTQ+ friendly and have worked with straight, gay and polyamorous couples.
