Begin To Heal Your Relationship
When you think about your relationship, do you ever wonder where the romance went? Does it feel like the relationship has somehow become disconnected from the love you once felt, or maybe even still feel? Are these worries taking over your life and making you wonder if your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/
We often feel like relationships should be easy. That once you commit to the relationship or get married you start your “happily ever after.” Unfortunately, those expectations don’t match up to reality and often make it hard to work as a team in navigating the bumpy road that is life. Those expectations more often lead to disappointment and resentment than a fairytale ending.
The truth is that even the best relationships take time and effort to succeed. Relationships need care and nurturing to thrive. Without being prioritized by both partners, it’s easy to drift apart without even realizing it. That drifting leads to a disconnection that means escalating tensions, hurt feelings, loneliness, and in some cases, infidelity.
Does this sound like your relationship?
If so, you’re not alone! More than half of all relationships contemplate splitting up at some point.
But that doesn’t mean your relationship is over!

Gottman-trained Couples Counselor
I specialize in helping couples heal
I've trained and worked for years to help couples repair their relationships. I know how hopeless it can feel when you finally decide reach out for help. But the good news is that countless couples have been able to overcome disconnection, feeling taken for granted, and even infidelity to emerge stronger on the other end.
I use the Gottman couples counseling method to help you lower tensions instead of escalate. We'll work on rekindling the respect, intimacy, and affection you once had for each other. Our primary goal is to strengthen your relationship in three areas: redeveloping a friendship with each other; developing skills to improve conflict management; and identifying the shared values present in the relationship.
How do you help me reach my goals?
I utilize my training in Gottman counseling to provide exercises that will help guide you both through the relationship-healing process. We'll figure out how you each feel and demonstrate love, and use those love languages to make sure you're on the same page.
Every session is individualized to your needs, because nobody benefits from a cookie cutter approach to therapy. We will focus on the specific strategies that will best apply to your situation. And when something doesn't work, we toss it out and try something new.
This sounds like too much work
When you're overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious, it makes sense that you'd be hesitant to add one more thing (therapy) to your plate.
What OUR patients tend to find is that our work together helps them begin to feel that there is hope again for their relationship. That initial burst of hope is so helpful in buying into the process and doing the hard work involved in repairing your relationship.
Therapy is an investment in your relationship's well-being, and much like exercise it takes a bit of effort to see the best results.
