relationship challenges

Whatever your unique situation, we can work together toward more successful intimate relationship. While we never assume that we know what you are experiencing or what your goals are (you'll have to tell us), follow the links below to learn more about some common relationship challenges.

We're going through a change or crisis

We're just not on the same page.

We're living separate lives. I'm lonely.

We don't handle conflict well.

I can't be myself in our relationship.

I want a more satisfying sex life.

We want to have more fun together.

Don't see yourself here? Every couple and situation is unique.

relationship, couples, and marriage counseling

If you decide to work with us, we'll address the issues that are important to you, whatever they may be. If you're in a relationship, we may work with you individually or with you and your partner together. If you are not in a relationship, we'll work with you individually to address personal relationship issues.

In our work together, we may focus on:

  • exploring and communicating what you expect and want from the relationship,
  • improving your ability to respond to requests from your partner in a supportive way,
  • the possibility of being yourself with your partner, while allowing them the same freedom.

... or not - it's really up to you.

We'll approach our work, as much as possible, with a sense of play, and we'll hope to strengthen the sense of play in your relationship.

We have a profound respect for intimate relationships of many types - hetero, same sex, traditional marriage, and less traditional arrangements.

Let's talk about your relationship. Learn more about how we might work together, and let us know if you'd like to talk about working together. We'd love to hear from you!
