Couples Counseling and Relational Mindfulness
Relational Health and Wellbeing is Necessary for Personal Heath and Wellbeing.
Research shows unequivocally that to live well is to relate well. We live longer and healthier lives when we feel supported, seen and respected by the people closest to us. Partnership and community can make our lives meaningful or terrible.
Most of us have experienced being incredibly wise and kind one part of our life… but then struggling to embody our deepest values in our most intimate relationships. When insecurities and old patterns get kicked up, it can feel like we’re spinning our wheels. If the problems in life are between you and your partner, it’s impossible to solve them together.
Learning relational mindfulness can open up new doors, remind us of the strengths in our relationships and create opportunities to have conversations that go places we’ve never been before. When you drop your defenses and protective assumptions, we often discover aspects of your relationship that are far more complex, committed, dynamic, playful, sexy and spontaneous than you ever imagined.
Life Transitions, Marriage, Parenthood
When partners go through major life transitions, your relationship with each other faces increased stress. Emotions run high and wires get crossed. It’s easy to feel unappreciated or afraid of what might comes next. Slowing down can help us recognize bids for connection and affection and respond in ways that soothe and support instead of instigating or exacerbating anxiety.
Couples therapy can be intense, beautiful and exhausting. You and your partner(s) are showing up to recommit to each other and your own loving intentions, to transform generations of trauma and to tell each other new truths. You deserve a therapist who will gender you correctly and who will understand that people experience romantic and sexual attraction in as many ways as we express it.
