Do you and your partner seem to be stuck in unhelpful patterns?
Are you longing for more intimacy and connection?
By the time many couples seek counseling, they are often experiencing entrenched cycles of blame and attack that undermine their longing for intimacy and connection. Or, on the other hand, they may be feeling distant and disconnected, leading separate lives. These patterns can become powerfully habitual and difficult to change.
Skilled counseling can help repair damaged trust, restore mutual respect and create intimacy.
I help each partner find new ways to express requests, feelings and feedback in a way that promotes collaboration and connection.
I support each parter in being able to deeply listen, understand and to see their mate in fresh ways. This involves setting aside pre-existing assumptions and beliefs to make room for the creation of new ways to interact and be together.
Gradually, a couple can increase their ability to:
-begin with a conflict
-express it to each other in a way that is constructive
-share underlying feelings
-experience increased closeness
-find new compromises and solutions to old problems.
The repetition of this process builds hope that positive results can come from processing difficult issues.
As a result, a climate of intimacy, trust and safety can be restored.
Get help sooner than later. It is easier to heal a relationship before too much damage has been done.
