My goal in couples psychotherapy is to help you and your partner reconnect, to restore the intimacy you once enjoyed and to build better bonds. Each of you is coping to the best of your ability; there is no bad guy. “It takes two to tango.” Every individual comes to a relationship with a personal manual, or set of expectations, of how relationships should be. Often the contents of these manuals don’t match, and you find that being in relationship is confusing and stressful, without knowing why. Problems occur when the behavior of one partner does not meet the expectations of the other. In counseling, I can help you both discover the underlying emotions, expectations and beliefs that keep you stuck in rigid stances and negative interactions. It is normal for couples to struggle, and having an objective observer notice where and why communication breaks down is often quite helpful.
