A Different Approach
Couples therapy is an opportunity for individual growth within the relationship. Christine helps each partner learn to take responsibility for their thoughts, feelings and actions. This in turn increases communication, desire, respect, and personal integrity. Christine has extensive experience helping both gay and straight couples.
What to Expect
Many couples come to therapy with the desire to have their spouse or partner changed. They mistakenly believe their relationship problems are due in large part to the other person. They hope the therapist will see this and “fix” them. This is rarely the case. The difficulties and the rewards of the relationship are due to both partners.
A typical couples session with Christine focuses on the present and moving forward. Unlike other couples therapists, when you work with her you won't spend a lot of time going over the past. Instead you will both learn how to stop destructive individual behaviors, take positive action in the present, and begin to experience the loving relationship you both desire.
If you both are genuinely at a loss for what to do, are not ready to end your relationship, and are open to looking at how you are contributing to your relationship problems then Christine is the right couples therapist for you.
