I provide couples counseling to deal with anger, frustration, a lack of intimacy, parenting issues and their own internal issues. My office is in Rancho Mirage. I see patients from Palm Springs, Palm Desert, La Quiinta and Indio.
The problems listed above are actually only symptoms of underlying issues. I help my patients understand how they learned to play their role in the relationship, how they adopted the beliefs, attitudes and behaviors of their parents and how much that gets in the way of having the relationship they want. In the process, we explore how each can beome their own person, letting go of the old beliefs and attitudes and finding their real place in the relationship. Both parties in the couple begin to grow.
I offer a unique approach to couples counseling in which there is no blame or fault. The focus is on the present, not the past or the future. This helps the couple deal with whatever issues are troubling them.
Both parties need to change. This change requires support from the therapist. I often see the two individuals weekly in couples sessions and in individual sessions to support these changes.
I do not take sides.
