Marriage & Couples Therapy

Sometimes you just need a tune-up…

Your relationship is running pretty well, but it needs a little adjustment here and there. Other times it’s in full breakdown mode, and a more complete overhaul is in order.

  • You might be going through experiences like
  • Loss, betrayal, affairs, addictions, or compulsive behaviors.
    Or you’re arguing all the time, and it has gotten ugly.
    You’re experiencing financial difficulties, or differences in spending styles that put you at odds with each other.
    You just can’t seem to get on the same page as parents, and the whole family is suffering.
    Or maybe you aren’t really in that much conflict, but you don’t feel close or connected, and have been drifting apart.

Here’s the good news:

Close to 40 years of solid research at The Gottman Institute in Seattle, WA has demonstrated what really works to achieve the very best outcomes for couples.
Gottman Method couples therapy offers you and your spouse an opportunity to recover a more positive, healthier relationship.  The concepts are user-friendly, teachable, effective, and practical. Couples experience healing, and renewed hope that their marriage/relationship can improve.

As the foundation of your family life, the health of your marriage or partnership is vital to the well-being of everyone in your family  — Dr. Beth Schmit 

It’s my sincere desire to help couples achieve more satisfaction, joy, and health in their marriage/relationship. Give me a call or send an email so we can see if my skills and approach meet your needs. I’m trained (through Level 3) in the Gottman Method of couples therapy,, and a Gottman Educator.

I’m also trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT, Externship).  These approaches are the two best scientifically-based approaches to treating couples in distress, and I’m dedicated to continually improving and learning about how to help couples thrive.

Give me a call or send an email about your situation.  I’ll answer any questions you may have to see if my skills match your needs.

Please don't feel bad if you've been struggling for a long time...


Couples in distress wait an average of six years to seek help, from when they first notice that the problems are significant. That’s right, six years!
