Relationships can be hard, but they can also be profoundly rewarding. Relationships take a lot of work and it can be difficult to know where to start.
Couples frequently report that they have tried everything they can think of to make it work on their own, but somehow they can’t manage to escape the cycle. Couples can get so caught up in how the other person triggered them, that they bounce back and forth in a reactive place.
When we are so close to the problem, it can be hard to get any kind of real perspective on what is actually happening.
A helpful place to start is to uncover what the unmet need is. This can be the source of many relationship issues. Once named, there is a real possibility of finding a way to meet that need.
I welcome all relationship variations, including monogamous couples, open relationships, polyamorous relationships, members of the LGBTQ+ and BDSM communities.
My specialty focus is sex and intimacy issues.
