Couples Therapy

Our marriages or romantic partnerships are our most important relationships. When there is frequent conflict, serious emotional detachment, or the possibility of divorce, partners experience stress, anxiety and depression, and less energy for parenting. Couples therapy can increase the chances for connection, intimacy and healing. I can help with:

  • communications and problem solving difficulties
  • commitment, engagement and wedding issues
  • work-life balance
  • cultural differences
  • pregnancy/infertility
  • becoming parents
  • sex therapy
  • affairs
  • dealing with physical illness
  • depression, anxiety, adult ADD
  • separation and divorce
  • remarriage and stepfamily issues
  • GLBTQ related couples issues

Individual TherapY

Sometimes issues from our past, or disturbances of mood and behavior, keep us from living fully in the present. Individual therapy can give you the quiet and space to understand the forces that are causing you difficulty and decide how to change them.

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • choosing a life direction
  • coming out
  • work-life balance
  • midlife uncertainty
  • aging
  • grief
  • caregiving issues

Consultation With adult families

Family members affect each other in profound ways, and should be one of our greatest sources of strength and comfort.  Life cycle transitions or unfinished family business may keep adult family members from supporting each other.  To enhance family life, I offer consultation/evaluation and family therapy.

`Conflicts of Family Dynamics

  • parenting struggles
  • adult sibling issues
  • financial conflicts
  • caregiving of ill siblings/ elderly parents
  • substance abuse and the family

`Conflicts of Life Transition

  • young adults leaving home
  • entrance of new members (partners, children)
  • coming out in the family
  • becoming grandparents
  • illness in the family
  • retirement
