Rediscover connection, heal and manage conflict effectively.
My goal in couple’s therapy is to give couples the support, insight and skills to have more connected stable relationships.
Sessions will not begin without all partners present.
Phase 1: Building a Good Foundation
The first phase of therapy spans three to four sessions. It gives you the opportunity to determine if you feel comfortable and gives me an idea of how to best work. We clarify and explore what brings the relationship to therapy and review your history. This helps us understand how the relationship works and where difficulties lie. Thereafter, we review your thoughts and feelings about going forward.
Phase 2: Working Together
Next, we explore how to help you work better together and review how these efforts progress. The therapeutic process can last anywhere between a few weeks to years and depending on your goals and desire to continue.
Phase 3: Ending Well
If we have started the second phase of therapy together, we must leave time to reflect on the process. While three sessions are ideal for this, we should spend a minimum of a full session on this. This helps reinforce progress made and can provide an opportunity to work through loss.
Couples therapy sessions are scheduled weekly unless otherwise negotiated and last just over 80 minutes.
