Create a love that lasts a lifetime.

Rebuild Connection – Rediscover Intimacy - Reignite Passion

“All relationships are constantly cycling through the stages of harmony, disharmony, and repair. And it is the journey through disharmony and repair that can make your relationship stronger.”
~ Terry Real

We all long for connection and relationships. We all desire epic, fairytale love.  However, relationships can be complicated.  Intimate relationships can bring so much joy and fulfillment to our lives but they can also be challenging and draining.

Perhaps right now you are not feeling as appreciated as you once were. Or maybe you and your partner are struggling to communicate, arguing more and more or having the same argument over and over again.  

It may be that you have both turned your energy to focusing on your careers, children, and building your home that you feel more like roommates than a married couple.  This is leaving you to feel more and more emotionally isolated in the relationship.

Or maybe you and your partner are struggling to communicate, arguing more and more or having the same argument over and over again.  

It may be that you have both turned your energy to focusing on your careers, children, and building your home that you feel more like roommates than a married couple.  This is leaving you to feel more and more emotionally isolated in the relationship.

Feeling disconnected from your partner around issues such as sex, money, parenting, and sharing household responsibilities equally can be frustrating and stressful.

You want to be able to know and trust that you are equal partners who are there to support each other and will thrive, together, no matter what challenges come your way.  

You want to feel like you and your relationship are a priority again.

Couples Counseling Can Help

If you are having trouble communicating and discussions turn into arguments or you seem to have the same argument over and over again with no resolution in site.

Perhaps you want help to reignite the flame and rebuild your connection you feel you have lost since having kids.

You feel isolated and lonely and want to rebuild your connection and intimacy with your partner.  

You don’t feel like you can talk openly about what’s going on with your friends and family.

You feel stuck and you need support.

The good news is that you don’t have to go through this on your own.  

The couples that I work with are busy professionals with children at home who are committed to their relationships.  However, like many of us, life’s busy demands have gotten in the way and there are a few things that need to be worked on such as communication, conflict management, building friendship and intimacy.

There Is Hope.

 During couples therapy, you and your partner will learn the unique strengths and stressors of your relationship.  We will get to the root of your conflicts and learn techniques that will help you to improve communication while strengthening your relationship and deepening your connection.

Proactive Therapy

Research shows that couples wait on average 6 years before seeking help and by then a lot of damage has been done.  

I like to take a more proactive approach and help couples learn the skills they need that are necessary to enjoy a happy, healthy and long-term relationship.

The Couples I Work Best With:

  • Are busy professional couples with children at home struggling with conflict and intimacy
  • Are committed to each other and know they want to be together
  • Want to reignite their passion and intimacy, rebuild their connection and boost their friendship
  • Desire to know and understand each other on a more intimate level and increase healthy communication skills
  • Want to learn better conflict management skills

The Couples I’m Not the Best Fit For

  • Are currently having an affair and haven’t told their partner
  • Are experiencing very high conflict
  • Are unsure of their relationship/if they want to be together or are considering divorce
  • Are looking for parenting/co-parenting support
  • Are looking for child custody support

 

A Research-Based Therapy

All relationships take work; however, you don’t have to continue to use the same methods that have gotten you nowhere.

We will be using the Gottman Method Couples Therapy developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman.  Backed by four decades of research, Dr. Gottman has been able to determine what behaviors are associated with relationships that last and which behaviors are associated with those that end in divorce.  From this research the Gottman’s have developed a wide range of effective interventions, including:

  • Re-igniting passion and rebuilding friendship
  • Building a culture of appreciation and bridging the gap of emotional distance 
  • De-escalating volatile arguments and gridlocked fights
  • Eliminating criticism, contempt, defensiveness and stonewalling
  • Building shared meaning and values for long term connection

How It Works

Traditional weekly couples counseling and premarital counseling all begin with an in-depth assessment process that includes several phases:

  1. An initial joint session where the couple has an opportunity to share with the therapist the history of their relationship, highlighting the seminal moments that led to the current state of distress
  2. Confidential online questionnaire created by the Gottman Institute that identifies the couples strengths and challenges
  3. Individual sessions with each partner, allowing them to share their personal history and perspectives with the therapist
  4. A feedback session in which the therapist shares her observations of their relationship struggles, as well as the development of goals for couples counseling
