Couples Therapy

Couples therapy is for you and a partner, together, with both of you usually joining me at the same time, and with the focus on your relationship. These days I only occasionally work with couples.

It’s usually more structured and somewhat more directive than individual therapy, partly because there are two people with potentially divergent perspectives, though how much depends on the couple and the situation.

I often supplement my psychodynamic approach with two leading emotion-focused approaches to couples therapy: Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman Method. Both of these can help us reorient your relationship away from negative interactions, and toward positive ones.
