Relationships can be one of the most challenging areas of our lives. I work with couples of all backgrounds who present with high conflict and complex situations. One of the key elements to couples therapy is having a safe container in which both people feel heard and understood. I provide structured sessions, offer direct feedback and teach couples the skills needed to move forward in their relationships. I use research-based approaches such as the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help couples understand the underlying issues, bring awareness to negative relationship dynamics, and develop healthier ways of relating to one another based on compassion and respect.
