WORKING COLLABORATIVELY WITH YOU, I HELP YOU IDENTIFY AND RESOLVE WHAT'S GETTING IN THE WAY OF THE MARRIAGE YOU WANT.
Couple sessions follow the Imago Relationship Therapy model though I draw from AEDP, Chapman's work on "Love Languages," Jaiya's "Erotic Blueprints", John Gottman’s work, and a variety of other models and frameworks. Through structured dialogues, couples learn to self-soothe in the midst of reactivity, an essential part of creating relational safety and lowering defenses. I assist each of you in learning to listen deeply and speak authentically in a way your partner can hear and understand. Gradually, enough space is created for both of you to see more of the others’ true self and learn to effectively adapt to the unique and changing needs of your partnership. Not only do you develop the skills needed to stay connected and repair, you learn to utilize boundaries where appropriate to cultivate a healthy sense of separateness.
