It is so easy in a relationship to feel stuck. Primary relationships are an important part of a fulfilling life. The love and support of another person can feel so good but it can also consume our time and energy when it isn't working so well. the emotions that get stirred up with relationship difficulties often feel over whelming and get in the way of communicating. Learning to manager the emotions so you can really listen to the other person is keep. Much of my focus in couples counseling is to get each person to look at what kind of partner they want to be and how they can take steps toward acting on these values.

We seem to do exceptionally well with couples meeting with each individually, then as a team. We work on creating clear boundaries, working on unconscious motivators and we are always short term resolution focused. If more in depth specialized work is needed due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment issues then we use either our IBSR model for stress, trauma, anxiety, panic and uncontrollable actions, then what typically happens after an IBSR session is emotions can move to the surface and be ripe to be organized with our CBT and our EMDR-IBSR Hybrid approach to treatment.
