It hasn’t turned out the way you thought, has it?
You may be asking, “Who is this person? They’re not who I thought they were.” You might even feel like you got the bait-and-switch. Conversely, you might not like whom you’ve become. You may have given up a lot of yourself in order to go-along-to-get-along. Sound familiar?
You need a Relationship Makeover: Relationship 2.0
Healthy, happy relationships come in many forms:
As your guide on the Heart Path, we provide the right kind of support to improve communication, negotiate needs, and discover greater meaning and fulfillment in your relationship.
When problems have been identified, you’ll get strategies for managing them.
You’ll learn how to identify the relationship patterns that keep the problems past their due date.
This journey isn’t meant to take forever. You don’t have time for that. Our mission is to get you to where you want to go without requiring any unnecessary sessions.
Most relationships don’t end because they’re terrible; most relationships end because people want a better one. You’re not alone.
Your relationship, for it to thrive, needs a total makeover: Relationship 2.0.
Supercharge this new beginning by using the latest science on intimate partnerships and what differentiates the disasters from the masters.
You deserve a bulldog when it comes to fighting for your relationship. Our clients expect a “tell you how it is” therapist. They want us to bring a realness to sessions and ensure that the voice of the relationship is heard.
Consequently, we offer a unique approach to couples’ work, one that emphases the roots of the problems: loss of connection, trust, fun, mystery, intimacy, and adventure.
Most of the couples whom we serve are overwhelmed by the demands of day-to-day life: kids, career, aging parents, different libidos.
Their ability to navigate these demands is hampered by their avoidance of taking risks with each other that would otherwise foster greater intimacy. More, they avoid conflict for fear that conflicts signal something bad about the relationship.
Avoiding risks and conflict are at the core of nearly all relationship problems. Imagine what it would be like to take risks and to address conflict healthfully with one another! That’s magic.
They no longer excuse their own behavior with phrases like, “It wasn’t my intention,” and, instead acknowledge the effects of their behavior. When they see that their partner was hurt by what was said, they repair, because it’s the adult thing to do.
Our successful couples don’t have to imagine what it’s like to turn around their relationship and getting back on course; they experience it. They’ve turned off the pause button on their relationship’s progression and pushed play! They’re taking action by owning their contribution to the problem thus creating the space for healing and reconciliation.
