No matter what stage of family or couple life you’re in, your relationships may have challenges, triggers, and obstacles. Disharmony, conflict, and feeling stuck can threaten your sense of connection and well-being. This applies to couples, parents and children, and all the people in your life who really matter. By identifying events, emotional and personal triggers, and patterns that disrupt your relationships, I will facilitate a relationship “redesign” that will change the dynamic, strengthen those connections, and allow for new ways of relating to each other.

How I help couples & families
redesign their relationships

Couples Counseling:
Volatility to Versatility
Distance to Connection
Avoidance to Intimacy

For most people, a loving and supportive primary romantic relationship is one of the biggest factors contributing to personal fulfillment. Yet many married or long-term partners struggle to attain relationship nirvana. Instead, they find themselves languishing in lonely or disconnected relationships.

Fighting that can’t be resolved, growing apart, distance, and strained intimacy; these are the issues that most often bring couples into therapy. Without blaming or finger pointing we explore how you got here, what’s keeping you stuck, and how to move through the stages of a relationship redesign from Volatility to Versatility, Distance to Connection, and Avoidance to Intimacy.

Family Therapy

Family therapy is a powerful process that doesn’t single one person out. Instead, it examines the family as an ecosystem where one person’s actions can create a new dynamic for the whole. During family therapy, members learn how to redesign their relationships to foster stronger connections, build better communication skills, navigate crises, and create more harmony in the home.

Family therapy can be helpful at any stage in the life cycle.

Discernment Counseling

Discernment Counseling is a process that helps clarify a direction for your relationship. When one person is leaning out, thinking the marriage is over and heading for divorce, and the other person is leaning in, still invested and trying to save the marriage, it’s likely that as a couple you’re experiencing a standstill and feeling stuck. Discernment Counseling is a short-term process that helps couples decide on a path for moving forward, be it together or apart.
