SUCCESSFUL COUPLES’ BEST PRACTICES

I love observing couples. I’m always intrigued by how they operate, especially if it works for them. I’m always learning from the couples around me. I’m in awe and inspired by couples that are dedicated and devoted to making their relationship work better. I’m honored to work with the partners I work with. Their commitment to…

IS YOUR BRAIN WORKING FOR YOU OR AGAINST YOU?

Unfortunately I get to see how partners get in their own way when trying to create connection and intimacy with each other. I can hear the noise in their head. I can see the wheels turning. I can see the gears grinding. I can see the squirrels running around, some even holding on to nuts for posterity… I can see the wreckage. I…

DOMESTICITY IS KILLING YOUR RELATIONSHIP

Partners look at what they contribute to their joint life as what they contribute to their relationship. These things usually include earnings and taking care of the family and home. But, what would you say you contribute to the relationship if you couldn’t include these? How do you invest in becoming a better partner? How do you…

WHEN YOUR PARTNER IS SELFISH…

What makes your relationship special? What is it about your relationship that makes you happy? What do you appreciate the most about your partner’s essence? How does your partner’s essence enrich your life?

I find that partners tend to forget what’s at the core of themselves and their…

IS YOUR PARTNER ALWAYS LATE?

I have found that most relationship issues can be boiled down to taking personal responsibility and setting effective boundaries… This includes showing-up to our interactions appropriately by being intentional, mindful and compassionate. It doesn’t do anybody any good to show-up by ramming ourselves down others’ throats… That’s…

REPETITION IS THE KEY TO SUCCESS EVEN IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP!

How do we create a masterpiece life? How do create an awesome relationship? The answer is quite simple, we change (grow, heal, step it up a notch, etc)… How do we change? We change by taking action on new information (or old information if you sat on your a** with it thus far)… Insight, information, learning, reading do nothing…

IS THE DANCE OF CONNECTION & DISCONNECTION DRIVING YOU INSANE?

I’m a therapist… I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I’m a Certified Imago Therapist (additional training in doing couples work). Hence, I specialize in working with couples. I’m often asked what’s my niche, what’s my thing… I specialize in working with codependent couples (partners having poor boundaries and self…

IS LACK OF TRUST AFFECTING YOUR RELATIONSHIP?

Is lack of trust undermining your connection with your partner and wrecking havoc in your relationship? Lack of trust might extend to beliefs that your partner is cheating. Or it can be as simple as not trusting your partner to be there, follow through, keep their word, be accountable, get your back, do the right thing by you, be…

GET CRANKING CHANGING YOUR RELATIONSHIP

I’m familiar with relationship struggles. I’ve had my share, obviously I’m not exempt, and this is what I work with day-in and day-out. I’m pretty intimate with the nuances of what troubles partners and what gets them stuck. For reasons that are beyond the scope of this article, I love working with couples. Couples are my passion.…

GET YOUR SWAG ON AND DAZZLE YOUR PARTNER

Romance is not just for Valentine’s Day! Romance adds spice, texture and color to life. Unfortunately, most of us don’t utilize this much in our life and relationship. We get too comfortable and busy… This is probably one of the hardest muscle to exercise unless you are in the dating world, and even then you might feel challenged.…

OUT OF THE SLUMP THIS VALENTINE’S!

It is not uncommon for partners to feel bored, stale, empty, disconnected and cranky. When this is not attended to it festers and creates more difficulties in the relationship. Partner’s start to wonder about the solidity of the relationship, their commitment to it and how much they want to actually be with their…

IT’S TIME FOR LOVE!

It’s amazing how many partners know their partner loves them, but they still don’t feel loved… This is actually kind of an epidemic… Couples struggle because they get stuck in power struggles. They let their Ego get in the way. They approach their situation from…

IT’S TIME FOR ROMANCE!

I think romance is underrated… I hear couples express they want romance and to be romanced, but they state it with a sense of shame, wishful thinking and as an unattainable outcome. They off-handedly claim their wish in the same sentence that dismisses it with the practicality of everyday life. Yuck!

Why can’t we…

IT’S TIME FOR PASSION!

In my recent reading I have come across a piece of writing that has made me think of sexuality and physical intimacy from a different angle. I love when that happens! Give me material that sparks my creative juices and that I can integrate into my work for greater impact, and I’m a very happy camper. This is what tickles…

THE SECRET TO CREATING YOUR AWESOME RELATIONSHIP

To succeed at anything a real commitment to do whatever it takes is needed… We all know of the “self made man”. People who grew up with nothing and are now multi-millionaires.

DETOXING FOR RELATIONSHIP SUCCESS!

There is more to us than meets the eyes… We have an internal world operating at all times that we are vaguely aware of.  Some people are totally out of touch with theirs… The more we become acquainted with our own Self and all it’s aspects, needs and desires the more we can be our Authentic Self and create our Authentic Life and…

WALTZ INTO THE NEW YEAR

Ok, so you’ve been together for a long time, or maybe not so long, and are feeling time just passing you by and your relationship not moving or progressing with it.  

You find that you still have a lot of the same issues, unresolved concerns, repeating arguments, don’t feel connected, are living parallel…

CHOOSE INTENTIONS OVER RESOLUTIONS…

We are what we think. We create what we think.

What we resist persists. What we focus on expands.

We are super powerful creating creatures… 

Our mind is a honing device for creating, a GPS for getting places… We create what we think whether intentionally or…

FRESH STARTS AND NEW BEGINNINGS

With the hustle and bustle of the year end activities and holiday preparations and festivities, it is no wonder that we might feel a little over extended and perhaps have been neglecting our selves and loved ones. With the New Year just around the corner, it is time to shift gears and change our focus. It is time for fresh starts and new…
