Couples Therapy Seattle
Couples therapy is not strictly for relationships in crisis.
Often, it is the greatest tool we have to prevent a loving union from falling into crisis.
Many couples find that working with a couples therapist early on in the relationship is the key to gaining a better understanding of their partner. It is a safe place to discuss difficult topics and to learn how you relate to each other as a couple, to understand each other’s reactions and behaviors, and come together in a loving, rational, and respectful way.
I am trained in the Gottman Method of couples therapy. Through this approach, I apply proven assessment techniques and intervention strategies to support you in learning how to navigate conflict, improve communication, strengthen friendship, deepen intimacy, build trust, and share your life’s purpose and dreams with your partner.
In couples therapy, we will assess your strengths as a couple as well as help you move through areas of concern. Through the process, you will gain tools to help you process conflict in a productive way.
The goal is to help you heal from your past hurts and deepen the connection between you. In many cases, you will find that some of your most contentious issues are put to rest, simply through gaining a clearer understanding of why we communicate and behave the way we do.
