Couples Counseling

When loving relationships don’t work, it can be extremely painful. Having a Secure Bond of Love and sense of Belonging are core human needs When we feel disconnected from our primary partnerships, it takes a huge toll on our emotional, mental and physical well-being, not to mention our jobs, our finances and our families.

According to the Gottman Research, most couples wait tor approximately six years after the first sign of trouble to get help. Gottman also has an accurate prediction of 5 to 1 type of nurturing comments vs critical comments which he calls the “Masters” and 5 to 1 critical comments to nurturing comments which he calls the “Disasters” in relationships. Gottman states 5 to 1 negative patterns are guaranteed predictors of impending separation and divorce. He also states that couples who wait over six years to get help is unfortunate because reactive behaviors have already set up and become part of the couples relationship style and have been reinforced. Sue Johnson states most couples suffer because of reactive recurring patterns of negative bonding behavior such as Avoidance, Shutdown, Critical, Rejecting patterns that make up their relationship style. She also states that it is critical to change these poor bonding patters before the relationship can be a safe place to heal and grow.

I’ve discovered in my thirty years of practice that couples who engage habitual negative patterns with each other even when they divorce, often repeat these negative patterns in their next relationship and/or find someone to take on the same negative role unless they get help to better understand themselves better and learn new ones. I can help you change your behavior patters and self-fulfilling prophesies by learning about your Imago and Soul Contracts.

Todays challenges are difficult enough, but not having essential conflict resolution and intimacy skills make it near impossible to succeed in life. I can teach you how to transform the way you connect with each other, making room for a new, refreshing, nurturing aliveness in your relationship and fortifying you against all the challenges the world has to offer.

Are You feeling distant from your spouse?
Is the same argument occurring over and over without
resolution and with increasing frustration?
Are you afraid your relationship is slipping away and
you don’t know how to get it back?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions,
I can help you

Does any this sound familiar?

In the beginning, you didn’t worry about the small stuff, life was easy and you knew how to enjoy each other. You were excited to be together and do things together. Making plans for your future was fun. You smiled when you saw each other and laughed spontaneously. You enjoyed each other’s playfulness and had fun together. You could talk about anything and you felt safe to share with each other anything and everything.

You had a dream of being together like this forever. It seemed you dreams had come true. You were so happy to have someone to love and knew they love you too. You dreamed you would be this way forever in a long lasting intimate partnership …..

but it seems over time everything has changed. You now argue about the small stuff. Say things you regret. You and your partner feel distant and don’t connect the way you use to. The relationship is becoming increasingly strained or almost non-existent.

One or both of you shut down or take turns blowing up at each other. You don’t seem to be able to communicate without defensiveness, blame and criticism. It has become a pattern of not knowing when the next eruption will begin and end.

Or, perhaps things changed when there’s been a major relationship betrayal or injury. You lost trust. You or your partner don’t feel safe with each other anymore.

You’ve stopped giving each other quality caring and the gift of your undivided attention.

You don’t seem to have time for each other with jobs and kids and household chores. You are drifting more and more apart.
