Relationship Counseling in Fort Lauderdale

Whether you are a married couple of 20-plus years or a pair beginning a new journey, couples therapy helps relationships.

Successful, loving relationships do not just happen to lucky people, they are the result of continuous effort. It’s not uncommon for some couples to shy away from therapy due to the belief that counseling is reserved for those on the brink. Although couples therapy is often sought during an intense point in the relationship, it’s also an effective tool early on to increase connection and satisfaction.
Therapy teaches couples how to manage conflict, increase effective communication, and enhance intimacy & friendship. I have worked with couples of diverse backgrounds and I’m experienced working with gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and heterosexual relationships.

Gottman Method Couples Therapy

In couples therapy, I utilize research based theoretical models and interventions. Many couples find the Gottman Method Couples Therapy extremely helpful. Dr. John Gottman’s research shows that to make a relationship last, couples must learn skills to manage conflict, become better friends, and support each other’s hopes and dreams. I have completed levels one and two of specialized training in the Gottman Method. Learn more by watching this brief video and visiting the Gottman Institute’s site.
