If you have worked with or are contemplating about helping couples achieve a better quality of communication, intimacy, romance, understanding, and satisfaction in their relationships, you may come across very specific obstacles such as those listed below:

  • Feeling overwhelmed as a therapist
  • Helping couples overcome and heal from affairs
  • Attachment styles in disarray
  • Emotional regulation and self differentiation
  • Managing in-laws and adult children
  • Teenage rebellion
  • Conducting family therapy
  • Intercultural mismatch of norms, values, mores, customs
  • Uncertainty how to work with interpersonal violence
  • Divorced co-parenting
  • Establishing boundaries & assertive communication
  • Codependency and enabling patterns
  • Addiction to drugs, sex, gaming, work
  • Intimacy, Romance, & Sexual problems
  • Feeling unloved, unheard, lonely, paralyzed, stuck in one’s self and in the relationship

If it feels like you’re dreading your next session or that your clients are not really progressing as they would like to, consider taking my workshops on those very specific issues.

In my workshop, I address the following areas:

1.

Getting started as a novice couples therapy counselor can be scary, learn how to design and develop a road map for your clients that puts everyone at ease and allows you to take charge of the sessions. Improve your assessment and prognosis skills. Improve your ability to see through multiple layers of complexity in a couples relationship. Using very specific, diadic communication strategies you evolve as a therapist to relax in the session and facilitate the couples growth and healing.

2.

Even if you are a seasoned therapist, you will learn many new strategies that serve as heuristics in screening the clients for red flags, attachment style conflicts, problematic personality traits, improving your prognosis for successful outcomes, sociometric & sensorimotor tactics to accelerate their growth and learning, assessing and treating sexual problems, training them on a transformative method that turns their communication from exhausting debate and arguments to healing dialogue and attunement.

3.

Incorporating a multimodal and multi method, comprehensive assessment as well as treatment that entails an integrative selection of strategies based on interpersonal neuropsychology, trauma-informed therapy, emotion focused therapy, experiential learning, internal family systems, imago relationship therapy, Gottmans empirical findings, self & object relations psychology, developmental psychology, human sexuality, strategic, structural, and intergenerational family therapy, Adlerian psychotherapy, and existential, Gestalt-focused psychology.
