I think it is important work in this day and age to teach couples skills in how to be with each other in a loving relationship while they cope with all the complexities of modern living in Southern California. The work is important for the couples, for their children, and for society.
When couples decease conflict and start working together to solve problems and become more emotionally connected, I feel a lot of personal satisfaction. I love it when partners start bringing out the best in each other and start seeing each other for their more positive qualities.
Yes. I work a lot with couples on the brink who are trying to decide what to do with their marriage or relationship. I have a protocol called discernment counseling which helps them choose a path which is right for them. With high conflict couples, I also teach specific anger management skills so that you can start immediately communicating better with each other.
