You're not alone.  If your relationship is likely many others, the attempts to resolve conflicts with your partner often result in a seemingly never-ending cycle of poor communication and negative interaction patterns. Couples often seek counseling for their relationship in order to gain insight into their relationship, improve communication, resolve conflict, and improve overall relationship satisfaction.


The method of couples therapy I practice is based on the work of Dr. John Gottman.  This method of therapy is grounded in over four decades of research and integrates research-based interventions that aim to increase respect, affection, and closeness.  While breaking through and resolving conflict that maintain a couples dysfunctional patterns of interaction and communication, we aim to facilitate deeper understanding one another and build a life of shared meaning together.  I have completed Level 3 training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I'm currently in the certification track to becoming a Certified Gottman Therapist.

To hear more from Dr. John Gottman, I encourage you to listen to the following podcast with Dax Shepard (Armchair Expert, EP83, February 28, 2019)
