I provide couples counseling, marriage and pre-marital counseling to deal with anger, depression, anxiety, frustration, a lack of intimacy and communication issues.
The problems listed above are actually symptoms of underlying issues. I work with couples to help them understand how their attitudes and behaviors create negative experiences in their relationships. I explain how they adopted the beliefs, attitudes and behaviors of their parents and how much that has gotten in the way of their having the relationship they want.
I show them how to change those attitudes and beliefs. In the process, they learn to beome their own person, letting go of the old beliefs and attitudes and finding their real strengths and desires. When this begins to occur, the underlying love that brought them together gets stronger.
I offer a unique approach to couples counseling in which I see both parties in a joint session and I work with them individually in their own session to reinforce growth. I throw out blame, guilt and fault which get in the way of positive change. My focus is on the present, not the past or the future. This helps individuals and the couple deal with the issues that are troubling them.
