There are many reasons people seek Couples Counseling. I have worked with hundreds of couples over the years. Many therapists shy away from working with couples. To often it becomes the “problem of the day” or “he said/she said” or there is an expectation for the therapist to choose a side. These approaches create a stressful environment for everyone in the room.
In a safe, compassionate environment I teach a communication style that allows each partner to be heard, validated, and receive empathy from their partner. This reduces defensiveness and opens up space for the other to make sense.
In the last 30 years I have helped couples struggle with these types of issues.
