If you’re like me, you started adulthood with an idealistic vision of relationships inspired by images from ’90s rom coms and Kay commercials. But now your naïveté is so ten years ago and you’re struggling in your real life relationship. It’s hard to communicate effectively, compromise, or get through challenges and big life changes without shutting down or escalating. And it’s tough to be your best self when your relationship is struggling. You might start to feel depressed, hopeless, on edge. Couples I work with are often intelligent, creative and care about each other and the world, but are stuck in negative dynamics.
I spent 3 years teaching Healthy Relationships workshops, and I’ve also done special trainings to work with couples, including Gottman Levels 1, 2 and 3, and Emotion Focused Therapy. What I’ve learned is that even relationships that seem to be in real deep sh** can become strong, resilient and healthy if both people are willing to put in the work.
The process is sometimes painful and difficult. But it’s also often fun. You will practice communicating in better ways, learn new skills for compromise, and get to know each other on a deeper level. Puedo hablar un poco de español contigo, pero no puedo hablar con fluencia. LGBTQI affirming.
