Are You Feeling Unloved? Is Your Relationship Torn With Strife?

A broken or damaged relationship can be the cause of some of the deepest pain in life. We all know what the ideal marriage is — to be loved, valued and cherished by the person we love. When the marriage falls short of the ideal, sometimes agonizingly short, it can feel like the world is falling apart.

Sometimes partners react in self-defeating ways in an effort to save the relationship. One partner may hurt the other partner or shut down emotionally. The couple may also aggressively try to mend the relationship, trying to talk, to be heard. Then, when sincere efforts only lead to further hurt, the spiral begins — partners argue or close themselves off, which leads both partners to fear that they will never feel close to each other again.

Relationships Can Be Healed. Trust Can Be Rebuilt. Love Can Be Renewed. Intimacy Can Be Restored.

Patricia utilizes a step-by-step approach to help couples achieve goals that promote a healthy marriage. She collaborates with couples to teach them effective strategies to improve their marriage.

  • Couples learn communication, problem-solving, negotiation, and conflict-resolution skills to prevent them from recycling problems in their marriage.
  • Couples learn how to manage their angry impulses in conflict situations.
  • Couples learn how to collaborate and connect in times of distress.
  • Couples learn how to raise healthy self-confident children who self-actualize and meet their full potential.
