Couples

Build secure-functioning partner and marital relationships, eliminate threat, and increase win-win connections through better communication and deeper intimacy! Repair disagreements and ruptures quickly by learning how to help to regulate and sooth yourself and your partner. 


Couples counseling in my private practice is based on the work 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 family of origin 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 you and your partner's needs, key issues are assessed and reparative experiences take place with attention to developmental neuroscience, underlying relational issues, and arousal regulation.

PACT tends to require fewer sessions than other couples therapy approaches. Sessions are usually 90-minutes and can go 3-hours depending on the couple and the issues being addressed. Longer sessions allow us to accomplish significant pieces of foundational relationship work in each meeting and leave with a renewed sense of connection and understanding of the path forward.
