Do you find it difficult to feel connected to your partner? Do you often wish you and your partner could communicate with one another better? Has it been too long since you've felt on the "same page" with each other? Or are you planning to marry or move in together and want to solidify your understanding of and commitment to one another?


I offer couples' therapy for those who are interested in:


  • exploring relationship patterns and increasing both partners' satisfaction within the relationship

  • gaining practical tools for healthier communication 


  • fighting fairly and with less physiological reactivity

  • reducing the frequency and intensity of arguments

  • establishing a deeper level of trust and intimacy 

  • identifying precursors to arguments and how to self-soothe in the moment for better outcomes

  • preparing the relationship for the birth or adoption of a child

  • finding support for expecting and postpartum couples where one or both partners are experiencing symptoms of perinatal depression or anxiety

  • learning about how to create a happy, lasting relationship with each other 



  • Gottman Therapy principles

  • guided meditation and/or mindfulness practices for couples

  • traditional talk therapy

  • role-playing conversations to practice new skills and tools

  • cognitive-behavioral couples' exercises
