Hart Therapy


The Hart Method for Couples

The SH Principle

What I believe is that a holistic approach is essential for couples having breakthroughs and reaching their goals. The reason is because individual barriers to intimacy can only be effectively addressed in one on one sessions. So in this model we meet with the couple both as a couple and in one in one sessions individually to address those various barriers.


During couples sessions, I teach specialized communication techniques to overcome defensiveness, hurt, and disconnection. Customized approaches help couples solve problems and deepen their connection, love, and intimacy. Experiencing and learning emotional intimacy transforms relationships and life, making them forever enriched.
