Newly Married/Committed Counseling: While this might seem like the same thing as couples or marriage counseling, I understand and specialize in working with newly married couples. The wedding is over and it’s time to relax and enjoy newlywed or committed status with your husband, wife, or partner. However, sometimes the happily ever after can be more challenging than we once thought. Perhaps communication seems ineffective or perhaps conflict is escalating or maybe there seems to be more conflicts about small, insignificant matters. Newlywed adjustment challenges are normal and can be resolved. I can help. I specialize in helping couples to enhance their skills to combat the challenges that often arise during this stage in their lives.
Couples Counseling: Both married/commited and unmarried/uncommitted couples may seek couples counseling for a variety of reasons. The goal of couples counseling is to understand the dynamics of the relationship of the couple to include observing the dynamics that are working for the couple and those that are not working for the couple. Those dynamics that are not working usually cause the relationship to experience strain, frustration, distance, and add stress to the partnership. My training and experience as a marriage and family therapist has prepared me specifically to work with couples. However, while I specialize in couples and relationships, I understand that there are individuals in each relationship with valid perspectives and concerns. This is why I also have to specialize in individual counseling, to meet the needs of each individual involved in a relationship. My approach to couples counseling often includes meeting with the couple for the first session and then meeting with each partner in the relationship individually for the second and third session.
