Couples & Joint Therapy
Couples and joint sessions also typically occur weekly until the couple or family is prepared to increase length of time between sessions. Individual therapy may be recommended as an addition to joint therapy.
I tend to utilize an emotion-focused approach to couples and joint work, in which we explore and become more aware of attachment patterns and awareness or avoidance of emotion from childhood, as such both have a profound impact on our romantic relationships. We work to navigate the patterns of interaction that have been effective in the relationship while simultaneously reworking patterns that have resulted in conflict and turmoil.
Regarding familial therapy, my approach is collaborative and engaging, as I strongly believe that the struggles we endure are often correlated with the dynamics of the family. We work together to identify struggles, routines, and family interactions to create goals that provide safety and growth.
