How do you feel about the emotional and physical intimacy in your relationship?
Are you and your partner doing the demand/withdraw dance? Does one of you want connection and the other want space?
Are you emotionally drained or not sleeping well because of your relationship?
Would you like to understand yourself and your partner better?
Would you like to have the tools necessary for the most vibrant, healthy and loving relationship possible?
Whether you work with me alone or as a couple, I can help.
Six years of writing and guiding on space2live, extensive research for my book, The Quiet Rise of Introverts: 8 Practices for Living and Loving in a Noisy World, training as a family mediator and certification as a Myers-Briggs practitioner, have all given me the experience to offer you assistance, encouragement and suggestions.
Long-time couples often forget what it’s like to share a secret smile across the room. They forget what talking for hours then making love feels like. I love helping couples see each other differently. I would like very much to help you bring affection and ease back to your relationship.
Yes, it can be done even with dual careers, child rearing and hectic schedules.
Have you been dating for a while, but are not sure how or if you should take it to the next level? Are there things you struggle with when communicating with your partner? I would love to help you gain clarity within your relationship. I enjoy helping couples learn about each other using neutral language and positive encouragement. I have the tools to help you see your partner in a different light.
What I offer is:
The beginning of an exploration of each other and your relationship
A chance to get your relationship on track to mutual growth
I understand the need for each person to maintain personal integrity. I believe this can be done in the context of a loving relationship.
I uncover understanding while helping to create a new wave of intimacy for each couple. I will guide you to a deeper connection with your partner by increasing emotional safety within the relationship. The relationship and the future of both individuals are the focus. Emotional and physical intimacy are the gifts that arise from the newfound awareness.
When the love is gone
I believe in people and relationships and their infinite potential, but sometimes their is no reconciling a love that is lost. If individuals within a relationship cannot be their true selves, do not have each other’s backs or are not willing to learn and grow together then it is better to end a relationship and go forward on their own.
As difficult as this process of dissolution is, there are ways to make the transition easier. I can guide you through the actual breakup or divorce process by helping you pick up the pieces emotionally, create a healthy parenting plan, gain clarity and move on once the dust has settled. I believe people and families can evolve post-divorce or breakup.
