Committed to Happy Relationships
I'm so sorry you are here. As much as I love what I do, I know that when your relationship feels rocky, everything else feels uncomfortable too.
Maybe you are wondering "How did this relationship, which was once my pride and joy, a source of so much love become this empty pit of:
Deep Sadness &
But I am so glad you are here too. We aren't taught what it takes to have a safe, loving relationship. And that means how are we to know?! Not to mention that times have changed so much, and navigating marriage and parenting is not like your or my parents did it at all.
You may even find that you have symptoms of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) which often comes in the wake of discovering an affair or big betrayal. Or other traumas that so many of us have faced, and survived, and where the feelings might still be haunting in the body.
And yet, we feel ashamed if we can't get it right. Like we 'should' just know how to do this. As a wife and mother of two, I can relate! But I believe little good comes from shame and I aim instead to deactivate the triggers, and empower you with practical tools that, with practice, can help you achieve a richly satisfying life.
What I love to see is how, by working through the pain, the breakdown of the relationship can actually lead to something deeper, something more intimate and profound.
It's OKAY if you don't know how to fix this. That's my job. You just need to want to.
I really look forward to taking this journey with you.
Families are the backbone of society and I believe we all deserve that safe space to go home to. And by healing, we do it for ourselves, but also our partners and children!
