For most of us, relationships with others are instrumental in defining who and what we are. They make us or they can break us.
Relationships can hurt or can heal. Hurtful relationships early in life can only be fully repaired through a healing relationship.
When our closest relationships aren’t working, it often fills us with anxiety, self-doubt, guilt, hurt, resentment, fear, shame and anger. These feelings frequently lead to emotional reactions, which add fuel to the fires of dysfunction and the downward spiral of desperation.
Throughout our time together you will be seen (and will practice seeing yourself) through kind, empathic eyes (without critical judgment) as you learn to do the same with your partner and family.
In our work together we will pay close attention to our own relationship with each other as I help you empower yourself (and partner) to develop safe, positive, and long-lasting, intimate connections. I will help you find pathways out of your relationship conundrums.
We will focus on building trust and on using conflicts as an opportunity for growth, rather than a chance to engage in power struggles. You will learn how individual/character differences can energize, rather than hurt, relationships.
I will provide tools and techniques towards mastering the challenge of communication. You will see how changing your style of communications can lead to more harmonious and joyful relationships with spouses, parents, and children.
By facilitating constructive changes and shifting perspectives, I can help you and your partner regain your sense of vitality, excitement, and passion -- that “in-love” feeling, so that you can become a source of pleasure and inspiration for each other once again.
If you feel stuck, or are staying in a relationship out of desperation, or putting all your focus and attention on another person while neglecting yourself and what’s important to you, consider taking steps now to make important changes.
