No topic has been more discussed, written about, and analyzed than the art of human relationships; the warehouses at Amazon are filled with books on relationships written by self-help authors, psychologists, and therapists, and Hollywood has thrived on exploring relationship themes in the cinema. And with good reason: having positive interpersonal relationships is absolutely fundamental to our overall health and well-being. But sometimes we find ourselves stuck in seemingly endless conflict or stagnation, and we need the help of a therapist to navigate these circumstances in ways that really get at the root problems.
I believe that most relationship partners want basically the same things: to feel heard, loved, and respected, and to experience genuine intimacy and connection with their partner. I work with couples in emotionally-focused ways to explore the real underlying sources of their discord, leading to fundamental shifts in how they communicate with and relate to one another. I also work with individuals who are tired of repeating the same old patterns in their relationships, whether romantic, familial, or professional, and who want to explore new, healthier ways of engaging with others.
Although examining our own contributions to interpersonal conflict can be difficult, I find that those willing to embark on this endeavor with a spirit of openness and curiosity are richly rewarded in the end with the knowledge, skills, and insights that lead to lasting positive change.
