Love IS an addiction.

When you fall in love, your brain experiences the same high as it would with any other forms of addiction such as, smoking, gambling, sex, consuming too much sugar, and even substance abuse. When you look at your beloved partner, the brain region associated with reward center gets, literally, lit up! So you are not alone if you felt AMAZING with your partner (thank you, Dopamine) in the first year or two. And again you are not alone if you don’t feel that crazy excitement anymore now that you’ve been with your partner for a while.

We all have innate resources to help ourselves grow and thrive. Whether we work together for couples therapy, individual therapy, art therapy, or life coaching, my role as a therapist/coach is to help you access these hidden resources so you can live your life more whole-heartedly with purpose and intention. Even though I am trained in several different modalities, I believe that the deep and secure therapeutic relationship between a client and a therapist is one of the most important interventions in therapy. In our sessions, my clients often tell me that they feel truly understood, accepted, and supported.

You wonder if you still love your partner.

Just because you don’t feel the same way as when you first started dating, it doesn’t mean that you don’t love your partner anymore or any less. It means that your brain learned how to regulate the constant Euphoria overflow that you had been experiencing. So now the partner who could do no wrong before, is doing everything wrong, which leads to having frequent arguments and fights.

Here is a solution.

Learn how to communicate with each other effectively. Learn how to better regulate and manage your emotions. Learn how to get your needs met by your partner. Learn how to have an active and satisfying sex life with your partner. Learn how to heal from past betrayals, such as infidelity. And lastly, learn how to make each other feel loved and cared for.

I can guide you.

Are you interested? Give me a call and set up your first appointment. I will provide you a safe and non-judgmental space where you and your partner can discover and learn new ways to interact with each other and get the old spark back into your lives.
