Relationships can be tremendously rewarding, however, as we were each raised in unique homes with different ways of dealing with anger, communication, conflict resolution, and problem solving, we face challenges when we share our lives with another. We often feel under appreciated, wish our partner could read our mind, or hope that things could be easier.
I can help improve communication, reflect honestly how each member of the partnership is co-creating the current distress, and help the couple better understand one another.
Some common themes I help couples with are improving communication and increasing intimacy, identifying patterns that are not serving the relationship and life transitions, eg, when partners prepare to become parents or deal with other major life changes, including identity, job or spiritual crises. I will reflect with you and your partner during our sessions to help you grow as individuals and also as a couple.
