You probably have already discovered that there is no pill, book, tape or quick fix. A relationship involves two people who bring emotional baggage to the table. Our approach is unique in that we deal with each person as an individual as well as a couple. This method allows us to free each individual from hidden self-defeating patterns that prevent the relationship to grow.
We take a serious approach to our work and believe that a direct approach is the simplest and most effective method. There are a number of critical issues that have to be sorted out step by step. These are addictions, criticism, contempt, defensiveness, stonewalling and withdrawl.
We find that those who stay with us for 6 to 12 months are almost always successful no matter how much water is under the bridge. Those who see us have usually been married for 5 or more years and have children and grandchildren. For those who think this is too expensive and to time consuming -THINK AGAIN! The trauma experienced by the partners and children can last a lifetime. Also when partners quit one relationship they learn to dodge future relationships and carry all the baggage into new relationships. Conflict is part of life and cannot be dismissed out of hand. The key is to seek help as early as possible before the point of no return.
