Our romantic relationships often begin with feelings of great promise. Yet, relationships are complicated. The variety of seasons through which we pass in our relationships can enliven as well as challenge us. What was once a loving and harmonious relationship can suddenly be disrupted by angry conflict and attempts to control behavior or thoughts.
We may encounter a partner who drinks too much. The person we love may act out sexually. We may feel betrayed by our best friend. These problems can leave us feeling devastated. Our once peaceful and happy lives can feel hopeless.
Our romantic partnership can be a place of connection and support. Yet, at times our relationship can be dominated with conflict and isolation. It is possible for our marriage to support our emotional needs, especially when we need it most? Life can present us with many external challenges.
My intention is not only to help you learn the skills to effectively communicate and resolve conflict, but also to apply these skills calmly and compassionately with the person you love.
It is important to learn how to constructively navigate conflict as a couple. It is important to develop new patterns of behavior and thoughts that support you in treating each other with dignity and respect and to experience new ways of feeling connected with each other.
Relationships can offer us our most meaningful experiences in life. Wouldn’t it be remarkable to experience a romantic relationship with compassion and kindness?
The key to healthy and satisfying relationships is self-responsibility. When you learn to calm your feelings and quiet your mind, you will be able to bond in healthy ways. It is out of these healthy bonds that a solid romantic relationship is created.
You will have the opportunity to learn the skills to build a satisfying and deeply connected relationship with the person you love.
