Hey, glad you're here!
Hi, I'm Andrea Horowitz! I am a licensed mental health counselor but you might also call me a couples counselor, love booster, passion locator or relationship Jedi.
My mission is bring the fun and passion back to committed relationships.
I help couples who want to have a loving, connected, passionate relationship but have currently drifted into the Roommate Zone and don't know where to start to get back the spark and sizzle. Lots of things can get in the way of our relationships; careers, kids, health issues, aging parents, financial pressures. It's enough to take the fun out of it!
You might be wondering how I do that...
I support my couples in working through their stuck spaces, open up communication, and grow together in love and understanding. This won't be all about talk and who does what (or doesn't), this is about learning about each other and learning new ways to grow together. Building stronger relationships takes commitment and the openness to learning some new skills. I'll provide the structure, safe zone and the skills. You bring the commitment, love and willingness to work together.
Why work with me?
I believe stronger relationships will change the world.
I know from working with many couples that it can feel overwhelming, like one more 'to-do'. Couples like you can, and do, come out stronger and more connected. I also know what it is like to try to carve out time for a relationship, or therapy, which is why I conduct all sessions online to take some pressure off scheduling. You can be in session anywhere that is private (in the states of NY and MA).

I had a horse for 15 years. She was influential in my becoming a therapist. (That's her and I in the picture.)
Before I was a therapist I was a dog trainer, store manager, and executive administrative assistant (not actually in that order).
