Relationships do not have to be complicated

I  help couples who feel  like they have been hit by a gigantic avalanche that has turned their life upside down. It can be so confusing and painful being in a relationship when things seem like they are falling apart. You don't know what to say. You don't know how to feel.   You can't eat. You can't sleep. You can't think. Days and nights can seem so long when you are wondering what your partner is thinking or what they are doing or if you will even have a relationship next month or next week. Your emotions are up and down and you feel like you are on a bad rollercoaster ride and you just want to get off. 

Maybe you have just found out that your partner has had an affair or after many years together your partner is asking for a seperation. Or, maybe things changed when the baby was born or when your partner came  back from deployment. Maybe old hurts from the past were never resolved and when the wordd come to you to say to your partner, your hurt wont let you speak them and you are silent or you speak with anger,  resentment, rejection, criticisim, or sarcasim.  Sometimes, you just can't put your finger on what is wrong, but you can feel that something has changed.   

Many of the problems experienced in relationships are due to a breakdown in communication that affects perception, understanding and actions. Other times, it is unspoken expectations we hold about our partner or relationships that result in feelings of  disconnection and result in behaviors that can jeapordize our relationships. 

Whatever the reason is that you are here, their is one thing that is certain; you know something has to change.

There is hope. I can help you explore how you are feeling and help you learn new ways to effectively communicate your feelings and thoughts to your partner in a way that both of you will feel heard and understood. I can provide you with the support you need to  find the root cause of your problems, help you work to resolve them and help you create a relationship that recognizes and honors the needs and wants of you and your partner. 

​Many couples find that once communication has improved, they actually feel closer to each other, look forward to spending time together, and experience an increase in intimacy.
