As a couple's therapist, I support each member of the couple to understand the pain under their reactivity and to learn how to reach out and touch each other in intimately fulfilling ways. The research shows that couples who can learn to make meaningful emotional contact really have better relationships. Couples who merely learn how to negotiate tasks may end up more effective roommates, but do not report emotional satisfaction. Negotiation may be necessary but it is not sufficient for feeling really safe, secure, and meaningfully connected to the one we love.That kind of intimacy is what I work for with my clients.
