This is a private relationship you are both exploring. So, it can often be helpful to do some one-on-one work in the intimate setting of a couples coach to take a good, uninterrupted look at where you both are and what you're longing for. I encourage all couples to set aside time for couples coaching at regular intervals. Think of how often you go to the grocery store, get the car's oil changed, visit the doctor or have an evaluation at work. These are all check points to keep things running. How is your relationship any less important? Interested in exploring your relationship in a more private setting? Here's what we'd look at:

Relationships are not linear. And when we commit to living a life with someone, that is what we envision. Most couples walk into a relationship with strengths and weaknesses, known and unknown, that will be with them forever. That is both good and bad news, right? So when life gets going and the distractions get plentiful, these strengths and weaknesses can either bring us together or tear us apart. Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework, changing roles, intimacy challenges, external family pressures and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction – all of which affect overall family health. Not surprisingly, 69% of parents experience conflict, disappointment, hurt feelings and ultimately estrangement. The research by John Gottman on how to make relationships work can help us here - to find each other when we get lost - and we will get lost, many many times in this partnership. The 7 Principles Workshops & Retreats prepare couples for life before, during and long after babies. Wherever you find yourself in this process is a perfect time to begin building on what Dr. Gottman and his colleagues found is the best predictor of marital satisfaction: the quality of a couple’s friendship.
