A vibrant, fun and fulfilling couple relationship is very much within reach, providing both partners are willing to stretch to achieve the relationship of their dreams. I have developed conscious-love relationship therapy as a tool to energize partners to express self authentically, learn to connect and stretch to realize core inner drives for love and connection, for understanding and contribution. The treatment goals of couples work, ultimately, coincide with each partner achieving personal growth and transformation. As a top notch school, a couple relationship seems to be training ground where you come to understand your partner by better understanding yourself!

Communication. Trust. Connection. All three are important to any committed relationship, but they require teamwork to develop and maintain. I think of your relationship as a team of two. Sometimes one of you can pursue individual goals that cause your relationship to improve - like a star quarterback on the football field. But to experience the greatest change in your relationship, I’ll encourage each of you to explore and pursue individual objectives that promote the success of your team of two. Working as a team, you can discover ways to improve communication, build trust, and reconnect. This is how I help couples, and if the approach appeals to you, please contact me

I enjoy working with couples we want to improve their communication. I totally believe that is the one place where we are weakest, in our ability to communicate with our partner. Learning more about ourselves actually can improve our ability to communicate with others, but then we take the next step to learn about our partner. Learning how to show appreciation, understanding and acceptance are the best parts of being together.
