Licensed Psychologist & Certified Imago Relationship Therapist * Boulder, Colorado and San Diego Locations

Boulder & San Diego Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling Services Offered

Currently offering online sessions via secure video-conferencing for couples in California and Colorado.  In-person, private intensives available for those in the Carlsbad, San Diego area.

Private Couples Counseling

You will learn the skills necessary for healing and growth in the safety of private sessions. Whether in-person or on Zoom, my job is to help you to communicate in a way that feels safe, and helps you to deepen your understanding and empathy with each other.  You will learn to move “from conflict to connection”–learning to manage differences effectively, and how differences can actually point to areas of needed growth and change.  Ideally, couples will be seen for weekly, 90-minute sessions, though there is flexibility to accommodate your individual needs.

Private Intensive

Perhaps your relationship needs fast and immediate attention. Or, you may simply be wanting to “jump-start” your relationship to the next level. For those who can’t, or prefer not to do the “Getting the Love You Want” group workshop, this is another way of getting an intensive experience of this work, geared to your particular needs. We typically meet for 2 full days—9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a break for lunch.

What you can expect from this experience:
* A solid understanding of common themes that come up in all relationships, including: the Stages of Relationship, Attachment Patterns, Neuroscience of Relationships, and much more.
* A deep understanding of the specific patterns that you and your partner have that may be causing conflict and distress, and how to transform these into opportunities for healing and growth.
* Develop skills for effective communication utilizing the “Imago Dialogue” process.
* Using mindfulness and intention to experience a deep level of empathy, connection, and safety with your partner.
* Restore the passion, joy, and intimacy that brought you together at the start.
* Develop a “Relationship Vision” to help guide you moving forward to the relationship of your dreams!
