 Areas of special clinical focus with couples:

  • Working with couples who have added responsibilities or stressful circumstances at home or work, resulting in increased tension or conflict, and diminished positive connections.

  • Ongoing conflicts which escalate quickly, result in arguments, and reoccur. These cycles of conflict lead to repeated disconnection and fuel negative emotions.

  • Relationships that are affected by differing views and perspectives related to boundaries, decision-making, work-life balance, finances, intimacy, extended family, and/or parenting.

  • Intimate relationships that are impacted by the use of alcohol or drugs by one or both partners, or other behaviors or habits that are negatively impacting the marriage.

  • Helping couples heal from the immediate and longer term effects of a physical or emotional affair or to repair damaged trust in the relationship from other violations or inappropriate behaviors.

  • Working with couples in second marriages seeking to “blend” their families together, while building a foundation in their marriage.
