Relationships: Couples and Dating

Bringing a compassion and understanding to individuals in relationships or those looking to find relationships

Relationships are the source of enormous strength and pain for individuals, whether in the context of dating, family, marriage or other social connection. Common questions that bring couples and singles to therapy are:

  • How do I fix this marriage, is there hope?
  • Should I stay with my partner?
  • How can I find the right person for me?
  • How can I cope with past problems that are getting in the way of my relationship?


We are proud to have had success in helping couples with all sexual orientations find paths to togetherness, healthier ways of dealing with challenges, and clarifying the wants and needs of each partner in the relationship. Common areas of focus become:

  • Communication barriers
  • Listening when disagreeing
  • Tolerance in distress
  • Accepting one’s self and bravely facing the challenge
  • Accepting the partner as they are and moving forward
  • Recognizing limitations of a partner
  • Recognizing substance abuse
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Recognizing and helping those with a history of trauma
  • Cultural differences and roles
  • Knowing when to strive on and knowing when to stop
