I work with couples who have difficulty communicating through conflict, are emotionally disengaged from each other, or have experienced infidelity in their relationship. I encourage couples to look at what they contribute to the dynamic of conflict and work on making lasting change in those areas. I believe we all have emotional needs and that when they are unmet by our partner we become unhappy with the relationship. Recognizing a person’s emotional needs and how that affects a relationship is important to developing a strong and healthy relationship.
I am a trained facilitator in Parenting the Love and Logic Way™ (www.loveandlogic.com) parenting classes. Love and Logic™ is a philosophy of raising and teaching children which allows adults to be happier, empowered, and more skilled in their interactions with children. Love allows children to grow through their mistakes.
