We are biologically wired for connection, but maintaining a healthy and satisfying partnership can be far from easy. All relationships need attention and care, even if you are on solid ground.
Recognizing when things aren’t working takes courage. There may be concerns about what might get opened up.
The truth is: Relationships are hard. They take work. It can be hard to do that work on your own.
Challenges in relationships, even a crisis, are opportunities to get stronger and grow closer.
When you are in a relationship you don’t stop being you. Each person brings with them how they have been shaped by their families, previous relationships, hurts, expectations and dreams.
Our training incorporates tools and techniques from Esther Perel, The Gottman Method, Stan Tatkin's Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
These approaches share the foundational belief that who you choose and the ways you respond in intimate relationships are based on the attachment style formed in early life. Knowing more about this part of yourself and your partner can go a long way toward meeting each other's needs, reducing conflict and strengthening your bond.
