Your intimate relationship can be one of the most important sources of joy, satisfaction, and fulfillment in your life. However, issues may arise which upset that original harmony, and if left unaddressed, lead to a negative pattern of quarreling, difficult communication, and a loss of connection, trust, and intimacy.

Drawing from the fields of Transpersonal and Somatic therapies, Louis will assist you through experiential exploration and practices to help you identify, address, and resolve those challenging issues.

Louis offers you a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space where the two of you can heal old wounds. A place to learn new ways of communication and relating so as to be truly heard and understood by your partner. Through a collaborative and mindful process, Louis will assist you in co-creating a renewed connection, trust, and intimacy with one another.

As a couples counselor for 10 years, Louis draws upon a variety of counseling approaches and modalities as best suited to meet the needs of each unique couple. These including processes from Imago Therapy (“Getting the Love you Want” by Harville Hendrix), John Gottman’s Relationship Institute, and experiential practices from the Transpersonal and Somatic therapies and the Expressive Arts.

Louis is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and holds a master’s degree in counseling psychology from John F. Kennedy University. Louis has additional training in Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness, EMDR and the Expressive Arts.
