You will learn how to communicate more clearly, express feelings, stop blaming, learn to cope with anger and learn to be more open to solving your relationships problems. We will learn a conflict resolution model, how to listen without judgment, move past self-defeating games and even how to utilize “time outs” when feelings are escalating. You will see what BLOCKS are hindering your communication with your partner and you be will taught the SKILLS necessary to replace those blocks. A step by step process will be used by utilizing video exercises, practicing face to face in couple sessions, and doing homework exercises during and outside of sessions. Individuals are strongly encouraged to come in to meet staff so I can determine your values, attitudes, opinions about what you think is going on “telling your side of the story” before any couple/relationship sessions are scheduled. In this way I can learn more about who you are and what it is you want out of this relationship and how committed you are to moving forward.
