Dr. Blakely Mulder works with couples to strengthen their communication and feelings of connection. She understands the stressors of daily life can often interfere with being our “best selves” in a relationship. Dr. Mulder strives to deepen couples’ feelings of connection to one another and enhance intimacy. She begins the couples therapy process by first allowing each person to reflect on where their relationship is today, and what changes they would like to create in themselves and see in their partner. Her goals and focus during therapy are strengthening connections, conflict resolution, emotional regulation, support and empathy, and minimizing ineffective and unproductive communication or behavior patterns. By creating goals, carving out time, reflecting on your partnership, and learning new skills, Dr. Mulder will help you grow closer together. Dr. Mulder welcomes couples of all ethnicities, cultures, genders, and sexual orientations.
