In relationships, there is potential for joy, connection, intimacy and healing. There is also inevitable conflict that arises in relationships as well. This conflict may result in disconnecting from a partner and stonewalling, behaving with defensiveness, criticism or even contempt. This may feel hurtful, cause relational strife and alienation, or impact pathways of communication.
If you and your partner find yourselves with relational challenges, are feeling stuck and are interested in discovering ways to deepen your relationship as a couple, I would invite you to contact me. I have worked with couples for over 20+ years. As a clinician, I use an integrative approach which meets you and your partner's needs. This may include yet not limited to attachment theory, the Gottman method, IFS informed, somatic informed and a trauma informed approach to support couples in increasing their "positive couple interactions" with one another through assessment, modeling, coaching and skill building.
I also offer pre-marital counseling for those couples who would like to build upon their unique strengths and explore their challenges as they continue a relational journey together.
