Relationships play an important part in mental health. Couples therapy aims to foster healthy relationships. They are key towards fulfilling needs for companionship, intimacy, and validation. Strong couples are able to be good companions (sharing their day to day lives, personal histories, and interests together), give verbal and physical affection (affirmations, hugs, sexual intimacy, compliments, etc.), and provide emotional support (being there to help during tough times, validations when the person is struggling, etc.).
In couples therapy and marriage counseling, it is my goal to provide the tools towards helping people build and maintain strong relationships with their partners. I utilize an eclectic approach that includes, but is not limited to: Systems Theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Topics of Couples Therapy:
- Communication Concerns
- Sexual Concerns, such as low sexual desire or differences in desire, premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, or sexual pain.
- Divorce, remarriage, blended family concerns
- Premarital Concerns.
