creating a dynamic relationship together
Our intimate relationships can be our greatest source of HAPPINESS, and they can also be the source of great SADNESS and DISAPPOINTMENT.
When you fall in love, everything feels hopeful and clear. You meet that wonderful person and you feel that special connection. As time goes on it can feel so frustrating and confusing when angry outbursts occur, or when there is no communication at all. You might be tempted to blame your partner for the failure of the relationship, and even wonder whether that person is the right one for you.
Wouldn't it help to know that this is a normal part of a committed relationship, and that conflict could actually be an opportunity to grow closer together?
I'm guessing your wedding day didn’t include an owner’s manual to help you navigate through these predictable storms. That's why it's so important to have a blueprint for success and the right tools to build a healthy, dynamic relationship together.
This is what my Couples Program is all about
I've been working with couples for over 20 years and when they first come in to see me I often hear them say, "We tried marriage counseling before and it worked for a while, but now we're feeling more disconnected than ever." They worry they'll be in counseling forever. I took those concerns to heart and developed something unique in my practice- My Couples Program.
This program is unique in that it combines four coaching sessions with an innovative workshop to give you the most information in the shortest time possible. So you can begin to spend your precious time enjoying each other again.
In my Marriage Repair Workshop couples learn the nuts and bolts of a successful relationship. It's a step-by-step system packed with powerful tools and techniques to really enhance your relationship. It's presented in my office in a comfortable, informal setting. You also have the option to choose the online version.
In the coaching sessions I help couples fine tune and implement what that they learn in the workshop.
The essential Details
The live workshop is presented in 4 weekly two-hour sessions.
There's a lot going on in this first session.
First, you'll learn the predictable stages in a committed relationship. Why is this so important? Because it provides a valuable roadmap for your marriage. Couples are often blindsided when they hit a stumbling block in their relationship. They're like, "OMG we're not connecting like we used to. Sometimes we're not even attracted to each other. Is this normal?" You will be more confident riding out the rough spots when you know what to expect in each stage.
Next, I am going to teach you a powerful communication skill that has helped couples transform conflict into a deeper intimacy and connection. You'll learn how to talk so your spouse will really listen, and listen so your spouse will feel valued and supported.
Finally, in this first session you and your partner will be crafting your own unique Relationship Vision.
What are your personal dreams for your relationship? You will be identifying these dreams and using them to co-create a shared vision for your marriage. This Relationship Vision gives you a clear picture of your goals so you can develop a strategic plan for success.
You will get an inside look at how your amazing brain works. It can either help or hinder you in your relationship. As you understand how it works, you will learn how to use this miraculous powerhouse to harness destructive impulses that often prevent you from having the awesome relationship you deserve.
You will learn how your childhood experiences have shaped you and discover how your marriage can be a powerful vehicle for growth and transformation. Together you will learn to help each other heal the unfinished business of childhood.
Forget nagging. Behind every frustration is a desire that needs to be expressed. In this session you will discover a new way to make requests so that your partner will actually hear them. Finally, you will be spicing things up by developing habits of caring behaviors that sustain your relationship over the long haul so that you can begin to enjoy this exciting journey together.
My coaching sessions provide a safe environment for couples to practice and refine these new skills and techniques in order to enhance their effectiveness.
It’s a winning combination!
Congratulations! You've taken that first step toward a healthier and more satisfying relationship. I'm excited to have the opportunity to help you achieve this goal.
But what if you just can't fit the workshop into your busy schedule?
