When working with couples, I form a deep connection with the relationship. I listen closely to, and validate, each partner’s truth, using Non Violent Communication, and invite the other partner to join me in this experience. Together we put on our Sherlock Holmes hats and begin to track down where the misunderstandings have taken place, where shared meaning and connection have broken down and resentment has festered. We focus on what is working and shift the balance back towards prioritizing fun/intimate/romantic time like you did when you first got together. I use the Gottman Method for more structured couples’ work and am a trained Gottman Therapist.
