It is not easy to decide to start couples therapy. After all, we are expected to know how to make our relationship work! Many couples try for years to restore the tender loving care they had when they met. It seems that the harder we try to reconnect with the person we love, the more difficult it is to stay connected and fights continue to erupt.

After a while we start seeing our partners as scary, unloving and uncaring. Daily fights about insignificant things become a norm and being close and loving to each other becomes a distant memory.

Today we know the reason for that downward spiral that seems to destroy everything we are trying to build with our loved ones. In the last 15 years, the new science of a loving relationship and secure connection drew a clear map of a process for recovering from a relationship distress.

Enter the world of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy! In a safe and secure environment, discover, learn and practice with your therapist the skills that make relationships strong, gentle, secure, loving and everlasting. Time is of the essence to bring back what is lost.



Take the first step toward a fulfilling relationship that removes anger and frustration and replaces it with care, support, love and understanding. Journey with your partner through the highs and lows of your relationship to a place where you are both understood, valued, cared for and respected.

I know it is difficult to take the first step and schedule a session with a licensed marriage and family therapist; yet the alternative is a continued struggle and disappointment with your partner. Give me a call today to reclaim your relationship and to schedule your appointment for couples therapy.

When arguments and resentment become a daily norm, the life together becomes difficult and hurtful. After many years of being together, there comes the time when one partner moves out to save what is left of the relationship. If both of you feel that there is a thread of hope, it’s time to try a different approach that helped many couples to reclaim their relationship.

Together we will work to reconnect both of you on a different level and heal past traumas and hurts. Find your way to each other in a safe and nurturing world of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.



It is devastating when an affair is discovered or shared. The affair is a breach in trust that needs to be healed as a deep relationship wound. It is incredibly difficult to deal with the shock of the news and many aftershocks that follow. It takes strength and courage of both partners to slowly heal and safely rebuild the trust and the emotional bond. Doing repair on your own is tricky and can worsen the trauma to the point of divorce.

Let’s travel this road together using the Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy as a guide to heal and recover from this debilitating relationship trauma.

Addiction can happen to anyone. Whether it is related to alcohol, porn, the internet, video games, gambling or drugs, it has a detrimental effect on an intimate relationship. Many couples struggle to make sense of it and to find a way to recover. It takes courage to seek help and to re-build your relationship.

It’s time to heal your pain and find your way back to a loving and caring relationship with your partner. Together we will explore and heal to wounds that keep you away from the person you love.
