My love of working with couples resulted in founding The Couples Center in 1995. We now have 8 therapists dedicated to helping people to create more satisfying and supportive relationships. We actively help individual and couples to recognize and avoid destructive negative patterns of blaming, defensiveness, anger and withdrawal. By offering a safe environment in which each person is helped to explore and express their often hidden, underlying vulnerable feelings, a gradual shift occurs in which mutual understanding and empathy restores the bond of connection and intimacy.
Although I have more than 25 years of extensive training in many modalities of couples therapy, and have taught and offered consultation to my colleagues as well as offered couples workshops and seminars in the Bader-Pearson Developmental model, the process I have been drawn to in the last few years is Sue Johnson E.D., and Les Greenberg Ph.D., Emotion Focused Couples Therapy.
