“What love is depends on where you are in relation to it. Secure in it, it can feel as mundane and necessary as air – you exist within it, almost unnoticing. Deprived of it, it can feel like an obsession; all-consuming, a physical pain.” Who better than JoJo Moyes, a Romantic Novelist to describe the way we all have, do, and will feel in a love relationship.
Looking at your partner with love and compassion, feeling warmth from their touch, feeling the caring and love when they smile at you, that is love’s journey. How we keep the journey alive and on track, safe and continually growing is the challenge.
At times we all need help to see the obstacles that stand in the way. Relationships are hard work, they need checkups, maintenance, and sometimes overhauls. The work you put into your relationship can reap incredible rewards. Just like a garden.
Make the most of your time. Traditional fifty minute couples counseling is an incremental approach to change. Intensive couples sessions are designed to provide ample time to do the work needed to make changes in your relationship and are designed to meet your specific needs. In an Intensive, a couple spends 2 whole days or 4 half days with me as your guide learning how to create the relationship you hold in your dreams. You will gain a deeper understanding of your relationship and skills to transform it into the relationship you have imagined. Whether you are looking to reconnect, heal an affair or say goodbye, an Intensive is for you.
Traditional Couples Session
Are you blamed for everything wrong in the relationship? Does the same argument happen time and time again? Is it easier to disconnect and throw yourself into the kids, sports, work, an affair? All relationships have the capacity to heal and expand. The requirement is that both individuals need to be willing to work on it. Two hour sessions will teach, demonstrate, and practice relationship skills that bring healing to a damaged relationship and expand a harmonious one. Learn how habits are created by both partners. Thich Nhat Hahn says "Compassion is the second element of love." To have compassion you must have understanding.
