I offer counseling in a format of a one-on-one individual, couples, or family sessions. You can contact me and we will discuss what works better for you! I specialize in the following areas:
If you are determined to stay in the relationship, but are frustrated by constant lack of communication, misunderstandings, continuous fights; if you are distancing from each other but would like to get closer - this approach is for you.
With my help you will understand the reasons for your disagreements and learn new communication techniques; will practice new skills of respectful talking, "Timely Honesty", and attentive listening to each other.
2. Intimacy problems.
If you are among a very large percentage of Americans who are losing or have lost intimate connection, have low desire, sexual and/or sensual problems, are arguing about these issues and cannot find a valuable solution; are getting distant and feel disconnected based on the lack of intimacy; need and do not find emotional connection with their partner which leads to increasing frustration - this approach is for you.
With my help you will be able to understand the roots of your problems and reconnect on emotional, sensual, and sexual levels. Obviously, motivation of both sides is instrumental.
2. On the edge of divorce
If your relationship has achieved an extremely stressful point where both or one of you are thinking about divorce, but you would like to give it a final try - this approach is for you.
Whether you come alone or with your spouse, with my help you will be able to assess the depth of your divide and make an informed decision on whether you can stay together and what exactly it will involve; plus you will make a binding agreement to work on it according to the rules that we will establish together. In case you figure out you would like to proceed with divorce, I will consult you on the steps you need to undertake in order to proceed smoothly and in the friendliest possible manner.

3. Improving your relationship
If your relationship is stable but you feel you lack in some areas, like affection, sensuality, or sexuality; you or your partner easily lose your temper; you cannot agree on your parenting strategy; you have different views on money spending; you would like your partner to spend more quality time with you, or you have any other concerns - this approach is for you.
With my help you will be able to get specific practical help with your issues, including practicing making your budget; dealing with in-laws; planning your future fun activities and trips together; improving communication; strategies of communicating with respect and controlling your impulses; being able to express openly and without fear your concerns to your partner; bringing your sex life to a completely different level.
I also counsel people who are struggling with finding their significant other. I help them to be successful in dating. Read my article on the Articles'Page!
4. Managing your anxiety
If you are suffering from unreasonable fears, are worried about everything without any reason; if you've had or are currently having panic attacks that may be confused with a heart attack; if you are afraid of flights, heights, driving far away, certain animals, public speaking, being in crowded places, etc. - contact me!
In this individual counseling you will be able to learn specific tools and practice new skills, allowing you to first achieve a much lower level of anxiety, and then, through following a behavior modification plan, you will be able to reduce it to a comfortable level where it will not bother you on a daily level. You can conquer your anxiety!
