Relationship Therapy

The primary focus of relationship therapy is creating and/or re-building trust, commitment, friendship, and emotional connection. I like to look at it as actively choosing to turn two ME's into one WE. In couple counselling your relationship is the client, therefore I work with partners to:
-COMMUNICATE effectively
-KNOW/UNDERSTAND each other
-CONNECT/DEEPEN bonds
-HEAL past harm
-BUILD the relationship you both want and need

Highly researched and effective couples methods and techniques used in couple therapy include:
-Gottman Method Couples Therapy (Dr. John and Dr. Julie Gottman)
-Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (Dr. Sue Johnson)
-5 Love Languages (Gary Chapman)
