At Awakenings Center - Helping Couples with Love and Sex we specialize in couples counseling or marriage counseling. One partner often feels the need for more closeness either emotionally through talking, time together and/or sexually. The other partner gravitates toward work, productivity, space and solitary hobbies. One feels starved and the other feels criticized. The first fears abandonment, the latter fears control. The genders stereotypically flipflop over sex with the man being the emotional distancer but sexual pursuer and the woman being the emotional pursuer but having low desire. We can help you find a comfortable middle ground where your needs are met in abundance!

Often the relationships we cherish the most are also the places where we experience the most discomfort. We can feel all sorts of variations of misunderstood, unheard and uncared for (and often our partner feels similarly). The good news is that growth and healing are possible. Our brains are built for relational healing--we just need help getting unstuck sometimes. I would be honored to walk with you and your partner in helping you both to better understand yourselves, and each other, in the places where you are experiencing difficulty. And in so doing help you both to experience each other in richer, more meaningful ways.

When we enter relationships it is often with the knowledge of what behaviors we don't want to occur, but not with the skills of how to create what we do want in a relationship. Relationships are about connection--about sharing without becoming lost. I teach couples skills that enable them to create healthy relationships while maintaining personal authenticity and sense of Self.

In marriage counseling the primary focus is on the health of the marriage. For obvious reasons, the health of the individual marriage partners needs to be assessed. It is virtually impossible to have a healthy and happy marriage when one or both of the spouses have unresolved emotional wounds. Sometimes marriage counseling might need to be put on hold until the individuals have had an opportunity to heal. For a marriage to be a safe harbor for both partners there needs to be a solid commitment to each other. In addition to a whole hearted commitment, trust of one another is absolutely crucial. When trust has been shattered, everything falls apart. There are a number of reasons that commitment and trust has been damaged in relationships. Marriage...(view profile to read more)
