Couples of all kinds find themselves in thorny situations at some point during the course of their relationship. These can include communication breakdowns, misunderstandings, or disappointments. Some examples might be:
- Interfaith or interracial couples dealing with cultural, religious or family differences
- A couple coping with infertility or pregnancy loss
- Milestones such as death of loved ones, job loss, menopause or "empty nest" (when children grow up and leave home)
- When one partner is exploring gender identity, how does it impact both of them?
- "Should we get married?"
I have worked with couples one-on-one and in groups for many years, and my interactive approach to couples therapy supports both partners to improve communication, make healthier choices that benefit everyone, revitalize passion and create a more satisfying relationship.
