Maintaining a healthy supportive relationship as a couple can at times be a challenge. Individual differences and the many stressors or our daily lives, as well as specific injuries to the relationship, may work to interfere with healthy communication and strain our sense of connection.

In couples therapy we strive to build on strengths, heal injuries and adjust dysfunctional patterns that may have evolved. Through improved communication skills, understanding and a positive focus, feelings of warmth and intimacy can hopefully be rekindled. Additionally, we try to identify tension inducing issues and parlay increased understanding into productive problem solving and increased cooperation and compatibility.

Each of us brings into our relationships a history that influences our assumptions about and expectations of our partners. As we understand and respect each other we increase the chances that we can accommodate in the ways necessary for a healthy and long lasting relationship.

Common issues addressed in couple's counseling include: communication, intimacy, child-rearing practices, finances, job stressors, in-law issues, fidelity and trust.
