We typically meet for weekly sessions that are 50-60 minutes in duration. It is often beneficial to allow some time after sessions to be kind to yourself -whether it’s a meal, a nap, journaling or a walk- to allow your nervous system to settle before getting on with the rest of your daily routine.
Conscious uncoupling provides a safe opportunity for you to review, reflect, reconcile, share and conclude your relationship with peace, gratitude and respect for each other.
Often the death of a mutual loved one can be a significant relationship stressor as we all grieve differently, have unique ways of expressing our pain and vary with regards to our needs to be soothed and comforted. I provide grieving couples a safe and effective place to work with and through your individual and shared sorrow and communicate your needs for support to your partner in ways that deepen your relationship following loss.
Non-death related losses – such as the loss of a job, children leaving home, changes in health, relocation, retirement or aging – may evoke stress, depression, anxiety, anger, despair, fear or grief for either or both couple members. Couples therapy can be a safe and healing place to turn towards your grief together, reduce the isolation you each may be experiencing and develop skills to gain and receive support from your partner.
