Couples who develop distress tolerance, and engage in self-soothing exercises can turn their defensive responses into ones that support:

  • Conscious pursuit of understanding and change
  • Stress reduction and rejuvenation
  • Emotional accessibility

I can help you and your spouse/partner to:

  • Recognize and take responsibility for habits that sabotage your relationship
  • Identify underlying needs, worries, fears and insecurities that fuel blame and defensiveness
  • Embody the ability to be emotionally attuned and present for each other
  • Weed out and transform what Gottman Couples Therapy calls the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” (criticism, contempt, defensiveness, and stone walling)
  • Connect with the values that you share separately and together
  • Learn how to negotiate needs in a calm and respectful manner
  • Bring the spark, and playful charm back into your relationship
