"In my years of working with couples, families, and their kids, I have learned that most of us have common patterns that chip away at our relationships. Three of these patterns are in nearly every relationship that I have guided to repair and reconnect."

"Family connection can fluctuate for each member based on stressors, communication, and conflict. All families fight, but for many, it’s the repair and connection that make for a healthy relationship."

"By far, the number one goal most people come to therapy for is to communicate better (followed closely by decreasing conflict)... If you feel you need some guidance in navigating conflict in your relationship, we would be happy to consult with you."

We boldly choose to question and fight for something more yet are left wondering… if not LOVE, then what?

Let me give you an inside glimpse into the mind of a therapist. Well… mine at least. I’ll tell you now that I am by no stretch of the imagination a perfect person and I occasionally encounter “foot-in-mouth” disease.

How do you keep your sanity as a parenting couple? Communication, checking in with each other, and practicing gratitude may be valuable keys to success.

Practicing intentional positivity to outweigh the negativity brought more joy and harmony to these people’s lives as well as decreased conflict in their relationships.

You've got to clear out the stuff that's not important, prioritize and care for what is, and continually keep an eye on it.

Practicing healthier self-care and relationship-care leads to overall happiness and satisfaction.
