Couple’s counseling is one of my specialties. I balance humor, confrontation and exploration to bring about a rapid and lasting turn-around in a couple’s relationship. I ask for a three month commitment to the process of therapy to provide the necessary safety for clients to bring up difficult and sometimes volatile issues. Couples learn how to map out their downward cycles and thus to view each other differently and make new positive behavioral decisions. As couples learn communication skills and explore their issues in therapy, they are more readily able

to access the spark that initially connected them. In order to bind a couple successfully through a committed life together, research points to the importance of healthy couples having five times more fun than difficult experiences.
