I believe the relationships we choose are opportunities to practice new behaviors and values that weren't available to us in previous relationships. While you may worry that differences, disagreement, misunderstanding, or insecurity in relationships signals failure, with the right skills we can use these moments to foster deeper connection and fulfillment.
For couples who don't live in Michigan, I provide coaching. The couples I work with often identify as interracial or Queer, and I work with many couples in which one partner has recently come out. I welcome those practicing or interested in non-monogamy. However, if you don’t see yourself in any of those labels please still feel free to schedule a consultation.
Sessions include talking, as well as movement, mindfulness, art, and more; we will often see what unfolds organically, but if you have preferences we can absolutely talk about them. With couples coaching in particular, I may take a more passive role so as to allow you and your partner(s) to be focused on each other. While everything is indeed connected, we try to frame each session around a primary theme or experience related to your overall goal(s). You can learn more about my background and approach here.
Coaching is not psychotherapy and is best suited for those who are relatively resourced, and not in high conflict or crisis. If your relationship is causing severe distress or conflict I recommend finding a psychotherapist licensed in your state. If you are relatively stable and desiring deeper connection, coaching could be a good fit. Schedule a free consultation and let's talk.
