Couples

There are a number of pit falls that couples may find themselves experiencing that create conflict and dissatisfaction. Some include:

  • Frequent arguments
  • Infidelity
  • Trouble with communication
  • Parenting conflicts
  • Relationship crisis
  • Trauma and crisis situations

I integrate several therapeutic modalities and philosophies to treat couples. The Gottman Method for couple counseling is a more structured and goal oriented type of therapy designed to help couples manage their conflicts. Gottman’s approach emphasizes respect, closeness and affection. I have found his approach to be very helpful in establishing some new ground rules for couples in conflict. Another approach I use is Insight Oriented Couple Counseling. With this approach, we closely examine each others style of communication and typical response. An interpretation of the problem is discussed as it relates to early life attachments and development. Lastly, Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic approach is used to examine how each of your past family of origin issues influenced and shaped your present experiences with your partner.
