In couples’ therapy, we either bridge the gaps that might have come to be between you and your partner, or we find ways to separate in ways that serve you best. More often than not, both partners want the same outcome but look at different ways to get there. More often than not, life’s tasks took over life itself, doing took over being, and the partnership took a secondary place to the endless to-do lists. Even if you no longer want to be partners, even if you no longer feel romantic love for each other, we will awake positive feelings between you, so that you can move on kindly and lovingly. My job is to be your therapeutic sidekick as you both find not only the best versions of yourselves but the best version of your partnership.
The very same notions apply to family therapy. Most of the time, we will find that behaviors and to-do lists distracted family members from their shared goals and preferred outcomes. In our work together, we will strengthen the partnerships you have, the love you have for each other, the common grounds. We will bridge gaps in your points of view so that you can fully accept each other and support each other. My job is to be your therapeutic sidekick, as you become each other’s best support system and best advocates.
