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.

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.
