Relationships are very dynamic and function best when change and conflict are worked through allowing opportunities to grow and flourish. Often routine and circumstances can mask systemic or underlying problems, leading to breach of trust instances or persistent conflict. I work with couples to improve communications strategies and encourage open and constructive avenues to optimize new strengths in thier relationship. Strong listening skills, focussing on empathic opportunities and asking honest and mindful questions, are a number of techniques I use when working with couples. I offer realistic solutions, which are focussed on attainable goals and agreed upon newly established stradegies moving forward.
