Relationships form the fabric of our lives. Learning how to build strong, healthy, lasting and fulfilling marriages or partnerships is the base for the quality of all of our connections. In my experience there is usually more hope than couples think to build, or to repair and rebuild, the kind of marriage BOTH partners long for.
I love seeing new understanding, compassion, and renewed internal motivation to build a stronger connection. Even when couples talk about breaking up, it is almost always more about not wanting to live in distress for the next 20 years. If they can remove the distress, they usually love the essence of the person. They don't like the self-protective behaviors, but underneath is the person they fell in love with. They want to see that person again -- just as their spouse wants to see that in them! I also love hearing from people years later who worked to implement what they were learning with me and continue to strengthen and enjoy their relationship.
Some of the common desires are for better communication, more effective ways to work through conflict or frustrations, longings to regain the deep connection they once had, and more.
Email me. Tell me what times of day and which days work best for you both and then I will offer you some options. We do a session and then I send the couple home to decide if they want to do the work and if I am a good 'fit' for them. If so, we set up a next appointment. If not, I'm happy to give a referral to someone who might better fit what they want.
