Meet Ellen Singer:
“I have enormous respect for couples who have the courage to embark on couples counseling. Great relationship therapy is a carefully guided journey into layers of vulnerability that open us to what is real: our fears, sadness, pain, needs, wants, hopes, and dreams! As a couples specialist, you’ll find I work to make this journey safe and strengths-based. I’m always looking for what you are doing well and the abilities you have to make change. My style is always gentle, supportive, and kind. I help you grow in your understanding of the underpinnings of your conflict and unhappiness in your relationship. I work to help you change your styles of communicating, relating, problem-solving and interacting with each other to develop the connection, trust and emotional safety you are wanting with each other. Using a combination of evidence-based models including Internal Family Systems, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Gottman research and methods, and Harville Hendrix, couples grow in their self-knowledge of how and why they are upset with their partner. Couples get better when they learn to change their automatic habits of negative thinking about their partner, when they learn to identify their personal triggers, when they learn to respect their partner’s differences and adjust their expectations, and when they learn on their own how to repair their relationship when inevitable conflict or times of disconnect occur. You can do this! It’s a great privilege to walk this path with you and help you reach back out for each other.”
