About Alan

My practice focuses on work with couples who wish to connect better after periods of transition or challenge, such as from communication and blame, childcare, career shifts, infidelity, or empty nest difficulties.

In addition to utilizing well-researched methods such as Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, I offer psycho-education during our meetings so you understand the rationale behind therapeutic approaches. Ultimately, this process can help you feel more peace and joy in your relationship. I welcome being part of your healing journey.
