About Dr. Joanne Irving

I have had a private practice for over 20 years. For the past 10 years, I have specialized in couples therapy because I believe that the quality of the relationship we have with our partner is central to our entire experience of life. I also know that when the connection between partners is nurturing and rich, any problem can be solved, and without a good connection, every problem is insurmountable.

So many relationships start out feeling wonderful and exciting but end up in frustration and disappointment. Sometimes people try to solve the problem by moving on to a new relationship only to discover that the next one has similar struggles. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I feel passionately that couples should see therapists who have been specially trained in working with couples because many times well intentioned individual therapists end up causing the relationship more harm than good.

I draw on the extensive training I have had in working with couples and use primarily the Imago approach. Couples who see me learn skills that give them immediate relief from their most hurtful encounters and that foster mutual understanding and connection. They learn to communicate in ways that rekindle friendship and passion, that resolve long-standing conflicts and that lead to individual growth and satisfaction. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to speaking with you.
