Studies show that in the hands of a good counselor, marriage counseling is successful 70- 80% of the time.
Deep intimacy is the experience of feeling safe and being deeply known by another person. Intimacy requires vulnerability. Vulnerability requires security and trust. A relationship suffers when any of those elements breakdown.
My training in PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy), DARe (Dynamic Re-patterning Attachment Experience) and Somatic Experiencing™, have provided expertise in helping couples heal. A secure and well functioning relationship includes a sense of security, intimacy and growth. An injured relationship can be healed if two factors are present – both people want the relationship and both can identify responsibility for the current state of the relationship. If those elements are present, I can provide the tools for healing and beyond.
