to heal their relationships and their lives
My passion is helping couples transform their relationship by rebuilding it from the foundation up for lasting change. For the last 10 years, I’ve been working with couples and have learned what works and what does NOT work the hard way. I have in-depth training in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, created by Sue Johnson, which I have adapted to make accessible to all individuals and couples via my online coaching program Emotional Connection Now that provides the powerful guidance, support and knowledge you need to revitalize your relationship from the inside out. Together we tap into the natural healing power of emotions that create our bond with another and work through all the blocks that are getting in the way. We identify the negative patterns that have sabotaged your relationship and the feelings arising from these patterns. This program is not a simplistic strategy-based one that simply directs you to try various tips for communicating better such as using “I” statements or…It is designed to get to the root of the problem, effect change there at the core where it is most essential, which then results in improvement in all the issues that seemed to be a problem before (communication, sex, etc.). Working at this deeper level is what creates lasting change in relationships! Once you get what is happening underneath all the fighting, you will be able to take control over your relationship connection and steer it in a positive direction. You’ll create a positive cycle and say goodbye to the old negative one that undermined you for so long! Decades of ongoing relationship, attachment and neuroscience research have given us the cutting-edge know-how to transform our relationships from the inside out. I am deeply grateful to the pioneers whose research I’ve drawn from—John Bowlby, Sue Johnson, Dan Siegel, Ed Tronick, Jim Coan, Stephen Porges—and many others who’ve enlightened me so much in my understanding of how critical healthy emotional bonds are to our existence and what we need to do to achieve the deeper connections that allow us to thrive. I can’t wait to share the fruits of their labor with you in Emotional Connection Now to support you in transforming your relationship!
