My mom always taught me, “Don’t toot your own horn!” So, I have to admit that it’s uncomfortable to publicly claim that I am among the very best couples therapist in Pueblo and Southern Colorado.
Here’s why I’m “tooting my own horn” on this one: I’d like to let you in on what makes my couples therapy practice so unique. While I’m in the company of many great and talented therapists in my region, I believe that I have the greatest amount of experience doing couples counseling, and I have the highest credentials related to relationship therapy: a Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy.
When I first started doing psychotherapy more than twenty years ago, I was a “generalist.” In other words, I worked with anyone and everyone that was seeking help. I counseled adults, children, teens, individuals, families, and couples. Well, you know what they say: “Jane of all trades, master of none.”
A few years ago I realized that my deepest passion is in helping couples have happy, secure, successful relationships! I narrowed my focus to working almost exclusively with couples. By finding my niche, I have honed my skills and focused on becoming a master couples counselor.
By specializing in couples counseling, I have expanded my expertise in the area of marriage and committed relationships. On top of an amazing education in my PhD program, I continue to invest in state-of-the-art training in couples therapy. Over the past two years I have been in trainings and mentorship with Dr. Stan Tatkin, the founder of The PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy) Institute.
When it comes to determining if I am one of the premier couples therapists in Southern Colorado, what’s even more important than my experience, credentials, and ongoing training in relationship counseling? The most important factor to consider is the incredible results that my clients achieve, in a relatively short amount of time, by working with me through my unique programs.
The couples I work with range in age from their 20’s to their 70’s. Most are either married or in a long-term, committed relationship. Many of the couples that come to me for help feel like they are at the end of their rope. They’re frustrated because they have trouble communicating effectively, they either argue too much or feel completely disconnected, and they often struggle with trust. Some of the couples I treat tell me “this is our last ditch effort” because they are at a breaking point.
When these same couples finish my couples therapy program, they have become experts on each other. They have mastered communicating so that they each feel completely understood, and have repaired damaged trust. My clients even learn to fight in a way that is not damaging: it actually leads to relief and resolution. Simply put, my clients report feeling in love again!
One of the greatest things about the way I do couples therapy is that it is not the traditional, slow, drawn-out therapy process. I have developed a transformational relationship program that helps couples make lasting, positive changes, FAST. This is another reason I believe I’m one of the best couples therapist in Pueblo and Southern Colorado.
If you’re interested in finally resolving the relationship problems that have you feeling stuck or are keeping you up at night, give me a call at (719) 544-2016. I’d love to help you become the happiest couple you know!
