Couples Therapy

As a Relationship Therapist, the majority of my clients are couples.  They are either intercultural couples or they are from the same culture but are immigrants in the US.

Most of my clients are at a point in their lives that divorce or break up is imminent.  Let’s face it, most people do not search for help when problems start to happen.  It is mostly when they are running out of hope.

My clients have come in because of infidelity, uncontrolled jealousy, cultural incompatibility, anger, or other behavioral issues, and even sometimes because they cannot agree on who does what chore in the house.

Some of my clients have doubts if they should stay in the marriage.  As we work together, I help provide clarity to the spouse who is in doubt.  I will never tell you if you should stay or leave, we will together explore the options.  It is YOUR choice how you want to proceed with your relationship.

It’s time to consider couples therapy

In a couple’s relationship, there are 3 members:  2 spouses and 1 relationship.  I feel honored that you allow me as a stranger to parachute into your relationship (as a 4th member) and you share with me so many intimate details.

Many people think that therapy is a space to blame so they come in with an agenda to make themselves look their best while the other one is the problem.  However, in therapy, we focus mostly on the relationship between 2 people.

Hope is essential

If your goal is for both of you to stay together, we will work to restore hope and rebuild the relationship, intimacy, and friendship you once had.  If both of you are motivated to work in therapy, we can improve your relationship.

I am trained in the Gottman Method as well as different types of theoretical approaches to couple’s counseling.  Most importantly, it is a tailored approach to you and to your partner’s unique situation.

Schedule a free 15-minute phone conversation to see if we are a good fit to work together.
