Complex Family Care
I work with traditional married couples, couples in which one partner or both identify as LGBTQIA, and couples who are interracial. I assure each person feels safe, represented and validated in my presence. I use aspects of attachment theory, contextual therapy and emotion focused therapy in my work with couples.
My work with couples ranges from marriage preparation to helping couples with complex trauma reconnect with each other. Sometimes things like repeated arguments about simple things tells of a deeper issue. We can identify core problems in communication and opportunities to better meet the needs of each person, then begin to build a plan for a relationship in which both people feel loved and respected.
