Couple & Marriage Therapy

I have a passion for relationships so my practice is 100% relationship focused.

Couples counseling focuses around reigniting and/or strengthening feelings of togetherness. As a relationship specialist, I can help you navigate the issues that create distance between you and your partner(s) and support you in creating and reigniting passion and connection with your partner such as:

  • Finding love again after feeling like roommates 

  • Rediscovering each other in the bedroom

  • Figuring out a sex life with having small kids at home

  • Healing after an affair or betrayal

  • Navigating your polycule

Since my practice is so specialized, I do things a little differently then the typical "couples therapist":

  • I offer 90 minutes with all my couples counseling & partnership therapy sessions. Insurance companies, not relationship specialists, came up with the 53 minute session time. 90 minutes allows time to get to the heart of what brings you to me in less sessions. It also creates the space to navigate your individual stories with the dedication and focus it deserves.                                   

  • I meet with each partner for 45 minutes to go over your unique perspectives and get to know you individually.

I use and am an trained in WPATH standard of care for all transgender and non-binary folks.

 

I am kink competent, and have experience working with a variety of power dynamics, relationship structures, and alternative sexual interests. 

If you want to see if I would be a good fit, or ask me some questions, you can schedule a free 15 minute video consult through my portal. I look forward to meeting you!

Session Structure

Before your first session you will be sent my intake and questionnaire 

packet, which includes a 5 page sexual health questionnaire. The email will say ACTIVATION REQUIRED or YOU HAVE RECEIVED A DOCUMENT IN THE PORTAL.

First Session: (90 Minutes) I take an in depth dive into your relationship and get to know the heart of what brings you to me

Between sessions: You will each complete the Gottman Relationship Check-Up. A link for the 480 question assessment will be sent to you. This is part of my assessment process to help give me a full picture of your relationship so I can better help you.

Second Session: (90 Minutes - 45 minutes each) I meet with each partner individually. I want to get to know you as an individual and what you experience in the relationship. Your story is part of the relationship and important.
