Therapy For Couples

Move Forward Together

You love each other. Deeply. But you argue more than feels healthy. Too often, you feel disconnected. Hurt. Anxious. You long to feel close. Connected. At ease.

Or maybe you don’t argue. Instead, you feel lonely even when you’re in the same room. You long to break the silence. To reclaim your joy. To find each other on a deeper level.

Or maybe you are at the point where things are pretty ok, but really could be better. You want to recover your original closeness - especially if one of you is struggling. This is the time to strengthen your relationship so you can heal and grow together, come what may.

I can help.

I can help you create and maintain strong bonds based on love and trust.

I can help you create new patterns of connection and erase the old habits of fighting and avoidance.

Rekindle your spark. Communicate. Be understood. Grow together. Come out stronger than ever.

You matter. Your relationship matters.

Take time to get the support that you, your partner, and your relationship deserves.

My Approach:

I use experiential, creative, and expressive forms of therapy to help you experience your deepest relationship.

So many couples tell me, “We fight over the little things that don’t matter, but underneath there’s something big we just don’t know how to talk about.”

My extensive training in Emotion Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) informs my emphasis on creating secure, loving bonds between partners. I support you in dissolving the negative cycles that have keep you apart and make it so hard to resolve past issues.

In addition to talking things through, your sessions in my Bethesda office might include art therapy, mindful movement, Jungian sand therapy, and play therapy.

As our work progresses, weekend long intensives, equine therapy at the local horse stable, or home visits to see how you interact in your native environment are also an option.

Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. My practice is an inclusive and welcoming space for all, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
