We are wounded in relationship and it is in relationship that we heal.

The first step to greater intimacy is slowing down and connecting with what exists in the moment. When each person in a dyad becomes aware of the sensations in their own body, they begin to have greater awareness of the dynamics in their relationship. It is a deeper conversation based on subtle, non-verbal communications. When this awareness is coupled with movement and touch between the couple, profound and subtle awarenesses arise spontaneously.
The therapist serves as a present and grounded guide to help couples become more embodied and present with each other. This guideance can provide the invitation for a shift in the “dance” or interaction between the couple that leads to more clarity, harmony, balance, joy and creativity. Couples may create visual imagery together as a way to communicate, connect, and problem solve.
