Therapy is effective in treating symptoms related to anxiety, depression, anger, self-esteem, grief and loss, phase of life/transition, and a variety of other issues. In session, I use a combination of treatments that most effectively target your current state of being. Most commonly, treatment consists to 2 parts. First, we work to manage the symptoms that are affecting your daily life. Second, we search for deeper meanings about why these feelings exist for you. While we work on both parts at the same time, are first goal is helping you to feel better. Read more about my approach for additional information about my treatment modalities.
Working with couples differs from individual therapy in that the system (or couple) is the focus. Couples often look to a therapist for help in dealing with difficult communication and conflict resolution, infidelity, phase of life/transition, and a variety of other issues that impact the relationship. My approach focuses on learning more about yourself and about your partner, building upon the strengths you each offer in your relationship, and developing new tools to help you work together, communicate and problem solve.
Co-Therapy For Couples
Co-therapy involves two therapists working with one couple. Jeffrey Nord and I provide Co-Therapy For Couples who have tried the traditional approach to couples therapy and find it hasn’t been helpful. Often, couples are concerned about gender bias or “ganging up” in couples therapy. Having a male and female therapy team allows both partners to feel their needs are heard and understood.
