My Approach to Helping
The way couples communicate often misses the more important core issue or desire. Thus, the same old surface arguments, or ways of relating persist. It can seem so hopeless!
Rest assured, all is not lost. I can help you realize and express each of your unmet needs in ways that actually bring you closer to each other instead of causing conflict. When you hear and understand each other more deeply and accurately, it is amazing how naturally it elicits caring and helpful responses.
I want to remove the obstacles and get you both focused on being a team who helps each other and are sensitive to each other's needs. You both want happiness and fulfillment and I would love to help you find it.
The basic ingredients of relationships are sometimes hard to come by or maintain. These ingredients include, respect, compromise, emotional intimacy, trust, acceptance, and communication. When any of these ingredients are lacking, the relationship becomes vulnerable. Some argue, some"check out," others find themselves seeking what they need in an affair or other damaging ways of coping.
Often couples find an affair to be the most devastating. In the case of various forms of infidelity, you would be surprised what can be overcome and how learning from it can actually build a stronger and healthier relationship.
