Couple's Therapy

Sometimes we forget that adolescents are, in fact, children.  As they transition from childhood to adulthood, its natural for them to feel sad, angry, and overwhelmed while struggling to express feelings or find solutions.  That's where therapy can provide relief and hope to adolescents and their families.  In fact, the skills learned during an adolescent's therapy, continue to help them well into adulthood.   

A core value of my profession is “the importance of human relationships” and as an experienced therapist, I enjoy engaging adolescents on their own unique terms.  While adolescence is often a time of separation and independence, we often do not see that this occurs in the context of relationships and interdependence with others.  

 

Areas of focus include:​

Individual Adults

Individual therapy, also known as psychotherapy, talk therapy, or counseling, is a collaborative process between therapist and client that aims to facilitate change and improve quality of life.  Counseling can help people confront barriers that interfere with emotional and mental well-being, and it can also increase positive feelings such as compassion, self-esteem, love, courage, and peace. Sometimes specific issues or mental health conditions can begin to cause distress and interfere with a person's normal activities.  If this happens, it is time to seek therapy.  

 

Areas of focus include:​

  • Anxiety

  • Conflicts in Relationships

  • Depression 

  • Grief & Loss 

  • Life Transitions

  • Men's Issues

  • PTSD / Trauma

  • Relational difficulties

  • Social support and work stressors

  • Substance Abuse

Relationships can be a struggle at times.  Every relationship goes through periods of frustration and doubt at some point in time.  These are normal and can have positive effects if addressed.  Typically, they are opportunities for growth, but many couples see them as “the end”. 

 

Whether it be an affair, constant conflict, incompatibility, or growth-seeking, couples therapy can be a powerful tool in transforming your relationship.  Couples therapy relies heavily on building mutual trust between both partners and the therapist, and I strive to support each partner, no matter the dynamics of your relationship.  As a start, I generally meet with each couple together, as well as individually, as a means of helping us identify the mutual goals for our work together.
