My Master’s degree is in Marriage and Family therapy, which began a specialization in supporting couples throughout my time in the profession. Returning to school to earn a doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology and in my over fifteen years of experience in the field, has given me a deep appreciation of the challenges, difficulties and changes that couples face. The many demands of modern life can pull apart couples who are struggling with competing demands of their professional lives, various roles they perform, and the hard work of raising children.
Breaking through unfulfilling patterns, growing in understanding of each other, forgiving for past mistakes and working to feel more connected and greater happiness in being together are many of the goals of couples. Creating new, more fulfilling paradigm shift and a stronger feeling of closeness is needed to move forward together.
Couples Deep Dive Option: Many couples find that they have so much to cover in the first session and want to dive into therapy as quickly as possible. For couples new to counseling, this will give you an opportunity to have the first 3 sessions, Couples Session and 2 Individual Sessions, in one long meeting.
This is an option for couples whose schedules do not allow for weekly sessions. Or for couples I currently work with who find that 50 minutes is just not enough to get through all they want to cover. The session is 2.5 hour session.
