Risso Counseling provides relationship counseling for a diverse population of individuals seeking to improve the relationship(s) in their lives.

Relationship counseling can help create a stronger, happier relationship for you and your partner(s). My approach comes from extensive training and completion of levels 1 & 2 in Gottman Therapy, which includes decades of research from studying over 3000 couples, and the incorporation of several therapeutic approaches based on your needs. Through research-based interventions and exercises, I help couples break through barriers to achieve greater understanding, connection and intimacy in their relationships. This is a structured, goal-oriented, scientifically-based type of therapy.
