Has your relationship become overwhelmingly difficult?
How do you still find the love when…
Factors of everyday life can put a strain on a relationship. Couples can become stuck, rigid, even resentful.
stressors like intimacy issues, lack of trust, parenting differences,
long-term miscommunication or even infidelity can significantly
impact a relationship. When problems go unresolved or if one partner
is suffering from mental, emotional or physical health complications,
you can feel helpless, even suffer from feelings of guilt or shame.
Would You Like to Enjoy Your Relationship?
Relationship tension can happen from simple misunderstandings that can lead to long-term, unresolved issues.
Relationship tension often occurs when:
Instead of feeling stuck or overwhelmed, communicating more effectively can be the best game changer for a long and enjoyable relationship.
Bi-Weekly Couples Coaching Lets You Enjoy Your Relationship
Meeting bi-weekly provides you, over time, with the tools for sharing what you need and want with significantly less defensiveness, anger, or fear of criticism.
Using customized resources, you and your partner concentrate on learning specific ways to communicate that will help you reduce and/or release resentments and anger.
You will walk away with a greater understanding about yourself, your partner, your triggers (and why they occur).
You will deeply dive into your relationship, learning and practicing research-based, effective techniques and tools to help you and your partner create a new sense of connection.
Yes, relationships can be difficult, even overwhelming, but with motivation and a willingness to do what it takes to succeed, you can feel heard, be able to empathize with your partner and enjoy your relationship!
Q: Do all therapists provide bi-weekly couples coaching?
A: Not all therapists have the specific training necessary to work with couples. Prior to selecting someone to work with, research therapists and their experiences. My work is heavily influenced
by Dr. Ellyn Bader, Dr. Peter Pearson, and The Developmental Model. You can learn more about that approach here.
Q: Is there a guarantee bi-weekly couples coaching will work?
A: Yes and no. If you are motivated to learn new techniques, are ready to recognize how you each play a role in the joy and the pain of your specific relationship issues and are eager to practice with your partner in-between sessions, I guarantee you significant growth. As with most things in life, what we put into something important to us is what we gain from it.
Q: What if my partner is unsure about couples coaching?
A: Before beginning couples work, you and/or your partner will be asked to complete a short set of questions about your issues and time availability. I will review your responses and possibly ask you both to meet for a complimentary consultation. At that time, it would be great to hear why your partner may feel unsure. That way, we can better decide if doing couples work at this time is best and if what I offer is the best fit for you.
Q: Can bi-weekly couples coaching be done virtually?
A: Yes, but meeting in person would be my first choice. Meeting in person allows for much better control over technology (yours and mine). Meeting in person allows you to get away from your usual environment. Meeting in person lets you and your partner temporarily retreat into your session(s) without the usual distractions. Meeting in person makes you both the primary focus, without pets, children, grandchildren, knocks at the front door or other home-related disturbances.
