"The course of true love never did run smooth." — William Shakespeare
One day, you wake up and you realize that a stranger is laying in bed next to you. Perhaps you can pinpoint the moment things began to unravel. Perhaps it was a collection of moments that started you both on a separate path, one that you’ve only begun to realize is there. Whatever the case, you feel lonely. Life goes on, and you go through the motions, but to the most important person in your life, it’s as if you don’t exist. You might try yelling at the top of your lungs to make him hear you. You might quietly go about your business, waiting for her to notice you. Whatever your strategy, the chasm continues to grow, and you begin to feel hopeless. You wonder if your partner even cares that you are invisible to them.
When relationships become empty and disconnected, you search for someone who can understand and help you and your partner discover the next chapter in your relationship. I help couples to understand the interaction styles and patterns long ingrained in their relationship that create discord. Focusing on the relationship, we work together to discover strategies to redefine conflict and foster understanding and acceptance.
