Couples Counseling and Psychotherapy


In addition to offering connection and solace, relationships sometimes generate pain and suffering. This paradox can be tough to navigate! 

One of the reasons that couples have trouble is that painful relational styles and patterns learned at a young age often resurface in significant adult relationships.  

I work with couples to increase their awareness and understanding of the often unconscious ways they hurt themselves and their partner, and prevent themselves from getting what they deeply desire.  I create a safe environment in which both partners can express their feelings and be heard, and assist couples to speak from the heart.  I bring an openness and a lack of agenda to my work with couples, which creates space for the relationship to unfold as it needs to.  

If you’d like to set up an appointment or speak with me directly about your relationship, please call me for a phone consultation (510)269-7029.  

I welcome couples of all sexual and gender orientations.
