HOW MY SPECIALIZED SKILLS WILL BENEFIT YOU AS A COUPLE
I have had the honor and privilege of training extensively with leaders in the field of couples therapy. In working with you, I will incorporate theories and practical tools from Drs. Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson, co-founders and directors of The Couples Institute, as well as Dr. Stan Tatkin, Esther Perel and Michelle Weiner-Davis.
My approach to marriage and couples counseling is based on cutting-edge research on the developmental stages of love relationships and the neuroscience that governs how we react to one other.
I draw on the latest findings in these areas, along with my knowledge of attachment theory and sexual dynamics to help you deal with the specific challenges you face as a couple.
Often, the struggles we experience in relationships go back to the attachments we formed early in life. Knowing how these experiences have conditioned our brains and nervous systems help us develop a clear view of how we’re interacting in the present. This newfound understanding will enable you to see yourself and your partner in a new light, creating the foundation for greater trust, intimacy, authenticity, and compassion.
MARRIAGE COUNSELING INTENSIVES FOR COUPLES IN CRISIS
If you and your spouse are at a painful crossroads, I encourage you not to give up on your marriage. I have seen amazing results with couples who commit to a 1-day or 2-day marriage counseling intensive that helps them see where things have gone wrong and build powerful new skills that bring them back together again.
I offer custom marriage counseling intensives for couples living near Seattle, as well as couples retreats for those coming in from around the country. No matter how busy your schedule, we can arrange an intensive counseling experience that works for you. Learn more about this highly effective way of restoring love, trust and intimacy here.
