Marriage and Couples Counseling

Couples therapy for diverse sexual orientations

Are you tired of having the same fight over and over again? Are you having a hard time trusting your partner after a betrayal? When was the last time you connected with your partner without talking about your children? Or have you grown apart from each other and lost the passion that brought you together in the first place?


Relationships and marriages bring out the best and the worst in all of us. We are most vulnerable with our partners, and this trust and connection deserve love, thoughtfulness, and attention. However, because of many differences from our upbringings, family backgrounds, countries of origin, relationships with our parents, peer influences any many many more past experience, some of these love and thoughtfulness get lost in translation. At the same time, most couples never learned the right tools and skills needed to foster and maintain a healthy relationship. What used to be sweet and fun turned into dull and plain. What used to be easily compromised turned into a tug of war that no one wins. We then feel like we fell out of love in our relationships. 


Being in an interracial marriage myself, I understand how hard it can be to navigate differences in a relationship. I'm here to support you to better understand yourself and your needs in relationships, improve your communication skills, and develop a deeper and meaningful connection with yourself and your loved ones. I have extensive experience supporting couples with diverse sexual orientations and sexual practices. I strive to provide a safe space for diverse relationships.
