Expert advice to help you create your next relationship…Together.
Create Effective Communication Patterns
Dysfunctional communication is often about the distribution of power in your relationship. Understanding your conflict style can lead to collaboration instead of avoidance or aggression. Replace arguments with productive conversation.
Re-establish Emotional Connections
Increase your confidence knowing you meet your partner’s emotional needs. Learn the small daily behaviours that lead to increased intimacy. Replace the distance with trust and validation.
Feel and Behave Happier
One powerful strategy for couples is to dream together. Creating a future relationship in your conversation implies safety and security. It can also satisfy each partner’s need for fun and adventure. Reignite the desire for fun and togetherness.

I have noticed that a new perspective can have a powerful impact on a marriage. We are so often stuck in our own vantage point and are unable to see how this perspective blocks any other.
There is a great deal of focus in the therapeutic community for empathy in relationships. Many a therapist in a couple’s counselling session has attempted to increase the empathy of one spouse toward the other in the hope of increasing their emotional intimacy.
In therapy, we can talk a lot about the problem, but the better option is to flip the problem and create clarity by asking what the opposite of the problem is. In my practice, I ask people how they would be experiencing their relationship differently if there was a miracle in the night and it was fixed.
