Has your relationship lost its spark?
If a relationship that started with mostly fun and romance has turned into work and more of a friendship, you are not alone. The human brain is even wired to turn off the critical parts of the brain when we first feel attraction. Some say no two people would start a relationship if they knew everything about one another to begin with. It can be hard to regain the initial or honeymoon phases, but romance can be rekindled through improved communication and other techniques. The end result can be a better relationship than you have had before.I use the Gottman method as part of therapy based on over 40 years of research into what makes for happy and healthy couples. I can help with pre-marriage counseling, marriage counseling, relationship counseling, or, if necessary, moving amicably through breakup, separation, or divorce. I enjoy assisting couples in reaching their personal relationship goals and helping them find their potential.
Feeling anxious or depressed?
Anxiety, depression, and mixed anxiety and depression have become a part of everyday life. We may live in one of the most prosperous, healthy, safe, and free areas and times in our history, but many of our brains do not see things that way. Changing how people think can help them to change how they feel. Some would just like less stress and to be happier. Counseling can help in all of these areas by teaching coping skills and preventative measures and allowing a confidential and supportive resource.
