Practice Description: Are you looking for someone who can help you to relieve the pain, and learn better ways to manage your relationship? It's normal to have differences in close, intimate relationships.

The key is dealing with these difficulties in ways that meet everybody's needs enough so that there are "no held resentments." The other key to creating a successful and ongoing relationship is to build a "quality connection" -- one with an attitude of friendliness and warm, positive regard, along with mutual trust and respect. This is no easy task when there is a build-up of mistrust, shame, hurts, fears or resentments.

Fortunately, these wounds can often be healed or repaired, with the added benefit of achieving a fair amount of growth and wisdom in the process.

I'd like to work with you to:
a) Address and relieve your most immediate problems,
b) Set clear, realistic, measurable goals, to get you where you want to go,
c) Show you how to avoid headache and heartache in the future.

I will teach you antidotes for all four of Dr. John Gottman's "Main Killers" of relationships, which are:
1. Defensiveness and escalating arguments
2. Criticisms and putdowns
3. Held resentments
4. Avoidance and "stonewalling"

There is no redeeming value in unnecessary suffering. Learn the "secrets" for creating a better relationship now!
