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?
How are your past relationships affecting your current ones?
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.
Ten 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 six years of personal coaching, have all given me the experience to offer you assistance, encouragement and action steps.
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:
Conflict awareness coaching: Understanding of why you and your partner seem to be at odds over such areas as parenting, personal space and household maintenance.
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.
Hourly and Ongoing: One hour private sessions with me via video chat or phone call* during which I listen and offer perspective and suggestions regarding your relationship on an ongoing basis. I will offer insight into your attachment and conflict styles and action steps to move you forward toward resolution and connection.
$150/hour for an individual/$175/hour for couples
*In-person sessions available to those in the Minneapolis area.
