“In true dialogue, both sides are willing to change”
– Thich Nhat Hanh
Couples can expect that I will initially ask what brings you and your partner into therapy and determine each of your hopes for therapy. Working towards the same goal is especially important in couple’s therapy. I will take an active stance, helping each person express their feelings and needs to each other, as well as, highlight the verbal and nonverbal interactions that I observe between the both of you. When appropriate, exercises or homework that is related to what was discussed in session will be assigned to the couple to practice outside of session. My practice draws from Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy.
