Think back when a conversation did not go well. Was what you said not understood? What we say is as important as how we say it. Since communication styles differ from person to person, it can be one of the trickiest aspects of communicating. Some of us tend to react immediately and emotionally, rather than thinking about what was said. Others simply shut down. Improving relationships is as easy as learning, or relearning, how to talk to each other.

How is it that we are so clearly built for relationships, but also so bad at them? Often couples crave intimacy and connection from their partner but feel like there is junk in the way that keeps them separated from that connection. Both members of the couple keep walls up and are self-protective. This makes them quick to respond to slights, to hold on to the pain caused by past slights, and live with the anticipation of the next slight. As a relationship coach, I work with couples to identify the typical patterns that are present in their relationship to find connection, a space to be vulnerable, and a place to be truly seen.

Without conflict, couples do not achieve intimacy. The challenge is helping you and your partner learn how to have healthy conflict that leads to intimacy, rather than destructive conflict that destroys the relationship. While I work with all couples, I specialize in working with neuro-diverse couples. I usually start with helping you learn ground rules for being able to have safe, constructive, healthy conflict to reduce and eliminate destructive relational patterns. I also use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to help you reconnect, learn healthy communication skills, rekindle the flame that you once had, and start talking to each other again. If you are willing to work, I am here for you!

I fix broken relationships. I first see the couple and hear their presenting issues. I am looking at how they communicate with each other, what their patterns are, and where the relationship is broken. I get a background on each individual to understand what each party brings into the relationship and ascertain how they each experience the other. What is very effective is for each party to understand not only what they bring into the relationship but also what effect it has on their partner. The presenting problem is typically not the real issue. Educating each partner about their individual dynamcs and how they trigger their partner is the beginning to recovery.

I work with couples on an emotional level focusing on long-held internal beliefs about how we view the world and each other. These beliefs often get in the way of healthy relationships. Uncovering these beliefs and becoming aware that we have choices as adults, provides the opportunity to change and improve our relationships. I work with the process, what happens between the couple, and with the underlying feelings we protect with defenses such as anger, jealousy, sadness and shutting down. I have seen couples and individuals change in weeks when they can be more honest with their feelings with each other. Call me at 760-766-1622 or email me.

Couples may they be in a dating relationship, living together, engaged to marry, married, in business together, separating, divorcing, fighting over children, property, alimony or visitation, are often confronted with a breakdown in communication and an inability to resolve conflicts. Couple counseling aims to reveal the disconnect within a couple that often once had the ability to connect and function in harmony. Couples can quickly get off track with one another and need skilled guidance to help them learn to resolve conflicts, once again listen and communicate effectively as well as to be able to disagree without forcing the relationship to end.

Not seeing things eye to eye? Most couples will experience some kind of conflict related to stressful life events, values and communication. It is very common for couples to have difficulties and sometimes it helps to have a neutral party to help them express themselves and feel heard. I offer an integrated approach to teach couples new skills and to make changes together.
