A deeply committed and loving relationship can challenge you to your very core. Close relationships trigger our feelings from the past and our deepest insecurities and sometimes bring our worst selves into the open. Growing together through love takes you individually and as a couple to greater heights and depths than ever imagined.
I help couples experiencing: power differences, arguments over finances, parenting styles, cultural issues,/getting along with each other's family of origin, differing sex drives, lack of intimacy, infidelity, adjusting to being parents or empty-nesters, and substance abuse.
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."-Nietzsche.
