Couples Therapy

Research has shown that the quality of the relationship with a romantic partner can have a profound impact on our sense of well-being. When conflict arises in a partnership, individuals have heightened levels of cortisol and vasopressin, i.e. stress hormones, that lead to problems with sleep, energy, memory,
emotional regulation and poor health, including weight gain. Heightened stress levels within our love relationship can also impact other areas of our life including job performance. Hence, to enhance our individual sense of well-being, we must aim to create peace and balance together with our love partner. This is where I can help.
 
I have received specialized training through the Gottman Institute to help couples enhance intimacy and frienship in their relationship, and learn to  manage conflict better.  
 
 

Drs John and Julie Gottman, a husband and wife team of psychologists, have spent the last 40 years researching the nature of relationships in order to better understand what makes couples work, and what makes relationships fall apart.  From their scientific research, they were then able to develop a detailed training model to help therapists in turn help couples learn more effecive ways of communication.  If you want to build intimacy, enhance your friendship and learn to support one another in fulfilling your hopes and dreams, then contact me and we discuss how I might be of help to you and your partner.
