Couples counseling is based on the training of Dr. Stan Tatkin and the Psycho-neurobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT) method. PACT focuses on three things: 1) how our brains and physiology function in relationship to danger, seek security, and thrive on mutuality, 2) how our early attachment bonds impact our adult relationships, and 3) how to manage the arousal levels for our self and our partner. 


By remaining present and attuned to the client's needs, key issues are assessed and reparative experiences take place with attention to underlying attachment issues, arousal regulation, and developmental neuroscience.

PACT tends to require fewer sessions than other couples therapies. Session are usually a minimum of 90-minutes to 3-hours depending on the couple. The longer initial session(s) allows the couple to get through a significant piece of work and leave with a renewed sense of connection and understanding of the path forward. Follow-up sessions are usually 90-minutes and can be shortened further to accommodate client needs.
