Tired of Having the Same Arguments Time and Time Again?
Every couple has a moment when they start to fight more than talk, feel angry or withdrawn rather than connected with their partner.
It is really hard to gracefully manage problems in intimate relationships, whether those problems involve sensitive sexual issues, infidelity (cheating), parenting issues or ridiculous fights about whose turn it is to do the dishes.
As a marriage and couples therapist, I want to help you improve your relationship!

My Approach to Couples Counseling
Even general practice therapists well versed in individual psychotherapy often lack advanced training in couples counseling.
My training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples has given me a solid foundation for helping people improve their relationships. When applied in couples counseling, it has been found that this approach helps 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery, and that 90% show significant improvements.
Beyond my experience and training in couples counseling, I am passionate about my work. I feel challenged by my clients daily. I see the transformation of so many people. I enjoy giving hope to my clients when they are struggling.
I can assist you and your partner so you can restore the love you once felt and build a solid and lasting connection!
What Happens in Marriage Counseling?
All couples get trapped in negative communication patterns. For most of us, these patterns are hard to see clearly in our relationships.
The problem comes when a negative pattern of interaction makes both people feel bad about themselves and each other. Over time, couples get more distant and their negative pattern more powerful.
In Couples Counseling, I will work with you to identify the underlying negative pattern that keeps you apart. I will also guide you to create a more helpful pattern for your relationship.
Expect me to be warm and empathetic. When we work together, I will jump in with suggestions and information. I am not going to sit back in the session.
My goal is to always try to help both partners feel safe in our sessions. My clients can trust that our work will be confidential.
Life is too short to stay stuck in your negative patterns. Give Couples Counseling a try!
Are You Nervous About Marriage Therapy?
It is normal to be nervous when you do something new, especially something as private as counseling.
I UNDERSTAND – I will help you feel comfortable from our first contact.
At the heart of my approach to counseling is an intention to create a compassionate, confidential and nonjudgmental environment so that, together we can safely address your struggles and facilitate the life changes that you desire.
There is no need to continue feeling bad. Participation in counseling is a sign of strength and recognition of the importance of your relationship and family.
It’s time to feel better!
How You Can Work with Me
There are a couple of ways for you to work with me.
One way is traditional once a week couples therapy that you can schedule online. I have evening and weekend appointments available for your convenience.
Another way is to try Intensive Couples Counseling.
Research indicates that most couples get better after 10-12 sessions with an experienced EFT therapist.
I have discovered that intensive couples counseling can take therapy to a new level. My 3-hour therapy intensives offer momentum and intensity that can lead to a transformation in your relationship at a much quicker pace.
You will be given the opportunity to go through a process that can take weeks or months in traditional couples counseling in a morning or afternoon. A 3-hour intensive allows time to gain a better view of the deeper issues that often lie below the surface of the conflict and communication issues that contribute to a couple’s distress. Once a couple has a coherent view of these underlying factors it is possible to begin the process of creating positive change.
Intensive couples therapy can also be great for you if you have scheduling conflicts or work commitments that don’t permit you to attend traditional weekly couples counseling.
Your marriage is one of the most important assets you have, consider investing in it through Intensive Couples Therapy:
3-hour Intensive Couples Therapy | Your investment is $390
Once you schedule your couples therapy intensive online or on the phone, please make a full payment online. The 3-hour slot will be reserved just for you. Keep in mind that intensives can be arranged on Saturday. I will make sure you have breaks!

What my clients say:
“I found Jasmine very easy to talk to. She was very non-intimidating and I felt like it was ok to be honest with her from the beginning of our time together. She never seemed to assume how I was feeling, which helped me learn to articulate and acknowledge my emotions.”
Woman (43 years old), Oregon
“Jasmine was great. She helped us learn how to see how different things that we had went through in life was impacting our relationship. She was patient with us and taught us how to recognize what our needs were and how to ask the other for what we were needing without going into conflict mode. For the first time in years we are actually happy to be together! I’m really glad we were able to work with her! ”
