I have found that couples make the fastest changes when they get direct feedback and clear guidance on how to make things better. It's simply not productive to let you and your partner rehash arguments and engage in the same unhelpful dynamic for an hour. In couples therapy, I will actively stop you both from continuing in a negative cycle, point out unhealthy communication styles and show you how to say things more effectively, provide research-based information about how to strengthen your relationship throughout the session, and actively guide you in practicing new ways of interacting.
Couples can choose between an intensive or weekly therapy, depending on their needs and how immediately the problems need to be addressed. Here's some help in deciding which one is right for your relationship.
Couples come to therapy to address a number of problems, from feeling unnoticed to feeling criticized, acting unfaithfully or acting withdrawn, and being distant or being too close. Many of my clients say that they feel resentful or have stopped caring about their partner after months or years of feeling unheard and uncared for, and although part of them still wants to make things better, they don't know how to forgive their partner or move forward in a healthier way. My specialized training in couples therapy allows me to help couples no matter what problem they face, and I utilize several couples therapy approaches and interventions, tailored to best fit what the couple is seeking and needing.
No couple starts a relationship expecting it to become miserable.
Through communication and understanding, you can get back to feeling
loved, happy, and secure in your relationship.

Couples who want to strengthen their relationship have two options: the couples intensive or weekly therapy. Each one offers different benefits, and you are welcome to contact me if you need help deciding which one is right for you. In general, couples in crisis who need intensive, immediate help or who want the fastest results would benefit from the intensive, while those who are addressing longstanding but less acute problems are good fits for weekly therapy.
For the fastest result, I offer a couple intensive where couples dedicate a day to healing and strengthening their relationship. Intensives are available on select weekdays and Saturdays, and are 6 hours in length (with a one hour "working" break), allowing you and your partner to address current issues and make fast progress. You will complete a questionnaire prior to the intensive, allowing us to dive right into the heart of the issue as soon as you arrive. You'll receive a curated list of additional resources and a customized guide for how you and your partner can have the strongest relationship possible. Intensives are $2,600, which is substantially less than the yearly cost of weekly therapy, making it both an efficient and cost-effective option for couples in need.
Benefits of the intensive:
Condensing months or years of therapy into one day
Immediate and intensive work on your relationship
Easier scheduling and more efficient
A customized guide with personalized recommendations
$2,600 / 6 hours
To sign up for a couples intensive, please click the link below and select the "I'm a New Client" button. Once your appointment has been confirmed you will receive the intake paperwork via email (to be completed prior to the intensive). All intensives are virtual, so you and your partner can login from the comfort of your own home.
Traditional couples therapy (weekly for 60 minutes) is also available for couples who are able to commit the time to making consistent progress. Regular sessions allow you to safely explore what needs to change in your relationship, including negative dynamics, triggers for downward spirals, communication issues, underlying problems related to trust or affection, and letting go of hurt and resentment. For some couples the intensive will be too much, too quickly, and the pace and approach of weekly sessions is more effective.
Benefits of weekly therapy:
Consistent sessions to ensure you make progress
More frequent support to keep your relationship on track
The opportunity to dive deeply into problems
Time between sessions to practice skills and solidify the progress
$400 / 60 minutes
Couples therapy is often shorter term than individual work, but consistent sessions at the onset of treatment allow you and your partner to make quick progress while also giving you the opportunity to apply what you have learned between meetings. Sessions can be reduced to biweekly or monthly, giving you and your partner the opportunity to practice skills and strengthen your relationship with continued support.
Common reasons that couples seek treatment are:
Intense Conflict and Volatility
Volatile conflicts that are impacting day-to-day functioning
Poor communication and frequent misunderstandings
Inability to effectively resolve arguments
Emotional Distance and Loneliness
Lack of emotional intimacy
Difficulty communicating feelings or being vulnerable with your partner
Feeling unappreciated, angry, or alone in your relationship
Crises or Time-Sensitive Issues
Mistrust, infidelity, or insecurity in your partnership
Deciding about breakup or divorce
Incompatible life goals
