Better communication.

 More intimacy.

For relationships that matter...

                    let's cultivate your connection.

You and your partner feel like you're living separate lives. You've drifted apart. You feel lonely even when your partner is right beside you. When you fight, you push to get your partner's attention; your partner shuts down. You wonder if your partner even cares about you. When you aren't arguing, you feel distant and alone.

You want to feel close to your partner again. You want intimacy. You want to enjoy your time together, like when you first got together. You want a sense that you can rely on each other.

I can be your guide.

Rebuilding trust and intimacy is an essential step. Challenges are inherent to each relationship, yet each partner has unique strengths that can enhance the relationship once the connection is restored.

 

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and Gottman Method Couples Therapy consist of well-tested interventions designed to reduce the likelihood of infidelity, breakup, and divorce. In addition to these time-tested methods, I bring warmth, humor, and compassion to the therapeutic process. All sessions are conducted through a secure, online platform, which is both convenient and effective. I look forward to helping you reconnect.
