Sexuality and intimacy
Therapy calls for couples to express their commitment to each other, explore their sexual histories and expectations, and learn to communicate their individual and unique sensual and sexual needs openly and directly. The goal is to negotiate what you want, in order to be able to receive and in turn give pleasure. Therapy involves uncovering and extinguishing blocks to desired sexual sensuality, education, coaching and challenging couples to collaborate in mutually satisfying sexual adventure.
Affairs, Betrayal of Vows and Rebuilding Trust
Few acts are more disturbing than those that betray the trust we count on to make sense of the world. We aim to support couples to resolve the past by attending to the individual and interpersonal issues in the now. This is accomplished by encouraging both partners to express their individual sense of self and togetherness within the relationship by acknowledging what is real and true between them.
The process of distinguishing ones self during intense authentic communication reveals true character and allows for a healthy informed reconnection rather than an anxiety-driven pressure for togetherness at all costs.
