Inclusive Counseling for Couples and Relationships

Your relationship is one of the most important parts of your life, yet you might believe that it should not take attention and care that other aspects of your life, like school, work or raising kids, command. Inclusive couples therapy can help you repair relationship problems, as well as remember why you got together in the first place.

Many things can threaten your relationship's health

Maybe you have faced a significant loss together and are wondering how to connect in the face of complicated grief. For instance, losing a child can be very hard on a relationship. Facing a traumatic incident together can make it challenging to relate in a healthy way to one another. Your relationship may suffer because one or more of you suffers from complex PTSD (C-PTSD) and old stuff from your family of origin keeps getting in the way of being close.

 

Maybe your relationship is taxed because you are a member of the LGBTQ+, kink, or polyamorous communities and you don't have the usual support that more socially accepted relationships enjoy. All this creates stress and disharmony between you and those you love, which also impacts those around you--children, other family members, friends, pets. We are wired to connect with each other, so we feel each others' joy and pain.

But there was a time when your relationship felt good, or at least good enough for you to want to be together. You may have forgotten what it was that drew you to your partner(s), but you can find it again. You might have lost some hope that you could get along again, but that's okay... we can get through that together. The benefit of working on your relationship with help from the outside (moi) is enormous, when you consider the costs of being lonely, isolated, without support, and of divorce and custody legal proceedings.

 

Don't you deserve to feel that connection again, to be in harmony with your partner again? If so, please call me at 661-233-6771.

I think in relationships, you create an environment with your own work on yourself, which you offer to another human being to use to grow in the way they need to grow. Parents are environments for their children, lovers are an environment for their partners. You keep working – you become the soil – moist and soft and receptive so the person can grow the way they need to grow, because how do you know how they should grow?--Ram Dass
