I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, it’s beautiful.
If not, it can’t be helped.
(Fritz Perls, 1969)
Relationships are complicated and, contrary to popular belief, being part of a strong, healthy, and committed relationship may require objective, outside help. In fact, many research studies found that couples who recognize the need for professional help are much more likely to manage to maintain their commitment and grow in their mutual love and respect for one another, versus those who did not.
In working with couples, I use an emotional focused approach to help each partner develop new skills of communicating, relating, interacting, and working through past hurts. The focus of couples therapy is to help partners develop empathy, compassion, and understanding for one another. Each partner will learn to listen to the other, hear and respect the others’ needs and feelings, and understand their personality type in the context of the relationship.
