When you are longing to reconnect, enhance, and ignite your intimate relationship

 

feeling disconnected and alone in your marriage?

 

Feeling like you are drifting apart, becoming more roommates than a romantic couple.

You crave to create the time and space to have meaningful connections with one another, just like you used to. But, between work, kids, and the countless obligations that are pulling you in every direction, it seems impossible to find your way back to each other.

You have real fears about the emerging emotional, physical, and intimate distance, but you've been avoiding and trying to ignore this palpable disconnection.

There's just too much at stake to not keep working on the relationship, but just hoping it will get better isn't enough. You don't know where to begin. 

Tired of pretending like everything is fine between you. hen you're out with friends and family, you're . Sure, on the surface, your relationship seems like any other, but things just aren't the same as they once were. 

You find yourselves walking on eggshells around each other, hoping to make it through the week without having the same arguments that leave you both angry, afraid, and like you just can't get it right for your partner. 

Part of you that worries about what the future holds for your coupledom if things continue this way: Will one of you take the first opportunity to make a swift exit? 

You are thinking about or have already fund some solace in a side connection: a seemingly innocent flirtation, an emotional or sexual affair...

You are reeling after uncovering an affair. You are angry and scared that your relation will never recover from this.

(RE)connection begins here

Whether you are married, in a committed partnership, or single, relationship issues are universal. They often seem insurmountable when you're in the thick of it, especially when there have been emotional injuries. If you haven't done the deeper work of uncovering and accepting your authentic-self, how can you be expected to grow satisfied in an intimate relationship?

 

My goal is to provide you with a deeper experience of understanding what drives your desires, EMPOWERING YOU TO ask for what you need, and receiving the gifts of being in a FULFILLING relationship.

 

As a skilled listener and trained relationship therapist, I know how to look for the themes and patterns that engendered and maintain disconnection in all types of intimate relationships and within the many facets of intimacy.

When it comes to connection and communication, I will provide you with a proven process rooted in Emotionally Focused Therapy through which you will learn that it is less about WHAT you're arguing and more about HOW you go about conveying -- through your words and actions -- the pain of your disconnection and your longings for a better relationship. 

With genuine compassion and gained trust, I can help you uncover the deeper emotions buried underneath the anger, criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling, or deceit. In fact, those surface ways of expressing your disappointment and frustrations hide raw spots that often pre-date your current relationship. I can help you find a new way of communicate, one that is honest and openhearted.

With me, you never have to shy-away from engaging in the most difficult conversations about your marriage/relationship.  

 

You can trust that I will meet any of your intimate struggles with compassion and most importantly with a trained eye, including matters of sexual intimacy and deep emotional injuries, such as infidelity.
