While traditional 45-minutes-a-week talk therapy teaches communication skills, many couples can communicate perfectly well until their emotions get in the way. When your emotions hit an 8 or a 9 on a 0-10 scale, all of your communication skills instantly disappear. This is why, for couples with strong emotional reactions, traditional therapy can actually make things worse. I use 3-HOUR SESSIONS to help you identify and strengthen the positive parts of your relationship, eliminate the hot-buttons that drag you into those old vicious-circle arguments filled with hurt, anger or resentment and to develop the right emotional climate for healthy and productive communication
