Peaceful Journey


In my work with couples, I help partners gain a deeper understanding and compassion for one anothers way of seeing and experiencing the relationship and themselves in the world. This increased empathy and emotional intimacy allows for greater generosity in dealing with joint decision making, personal differences and conflict.

Areas commonly addressed in couples sessions include:

  • Communication, couples goals, fair fighting
  • Establishing personal and couples boundaries
  • Understanding personal blocks to intimacy
  • Understanding emotional triggers that contribute to strife in relationship
  • Understanding impact of earlier life experiences on current partnership
  • Balancing self care with nurturing the relationship
  • Enhancing emotional and sexual intimacy
  • Rebuilding after trauma, infidelity, loss
  • Couples in Recovery
  • Building a Healthy Us
