"Every positive thing you do in your relationship is foreplay."
-Dr. John Gottman
Are you looking to rekindle the spark and feel the passion you once shared?
Do you and your partner seem to argue about the same things over and over -- feeling as though you no longer understand each other?
Or are you trying to repair your relationship after infidelity or betrayal?
Perhaps things are going well, and you are thinking about moving in together, getting married, becoming parents for the first time, or growing your family.
We all yearn for connection; in fact, it seems we, humans, are wired for it. Yet, according to research, about 69% of relationship problems are perpetual, meaning the same issues will come up again and again.
"Conflict is an opportunity to learn to love our partner better over time."
-Dr. Julie Gottman
Connection through Conflict
While relationships are fulfilling and enriching, they can also be frustrating and challenging. So often, couples seem to get stuck in unproductive and hurtful patterns that create distance or end up in constant conflict. Mia will help you learn to be less reactive -- learning to be responsive so that your emotions no longer take control. Using the Gottman Method, Mia will guide you to use conflict to increase intimacy and a sense of connection.
Communication with Intention and Purpose
Some couples make big decisions about their future with little or no purposeful conversation and then feel frustrated when they realize they don’t agree on their roles, values, or how to raise their children.
Mia will help you learn new and effective ways to communicate with your partner so that you both feel heard and understood, build on the friendship that initially brought you together, and repair unresolved wounds while reintroducing joy and desire into your lives. She will also guide you as you have the essential conversations necessary to navigate transitions such as living together or growing your family.
Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:
- Balance (Work/Life/Family)
- Blended Families
- Chronic Illness
- Extended Family
- Empty Nest
- New Baby
- Parenting Differences
- Pre-Marital/Moving in Together
Mia draws on both Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, as well as other effective modalities, to create a personalized plan that will help you to enhance, rebuild, and nurture your couple with intention and purpose.
