Marital therapy is about change, in a supportive environment with a therapist committed to helping you improve your marriage. That means that I am not neutral. I won’t tell you what to do, but I won’t give up on your marriage either. I take the stance that nearly all marriages are worth saving, and I am committed to helping couples make changes that will improve their relationship. Almost all relationships can change, even when problems seem too difficult to overcome, when trust has been broken, or connection seems lost. What difficulties are you facing in your marriage? What would you like to be different?
Currently, the majority of my work is in marital therapy (approximately 60%-70% of my clients). My approach is collaborative, supportive, practical, and focused on helping you reach your goals. Fault finding or blaming is not necessary and is often counter-productive. We’ll work to improve communication, increase understanding and support, establish trust and safety, and build positive moments of relating that strengthen your marriage. I focus on strengths, rather than emphasizing weaknesses. You’ll find that I am supportive and easy to talk with, and that therapy will be thought-provoking, enjoyable, stimulating, and, at times, challenging.
How long will therapy last? I can’t give a specific time frame for your situation, but most clients meet with me for approximately 6-12 sessions. If your spouse is hesitant to come, give me a call anyway.
