Couples today are longing for a kind of intimate partnership for which most of us have had few models in our own families. Meanwhile the stresses and distractions in our lives make the challenge of connection all the more difficult. But now the latest discoveries about the social nature of the brain and mind/body learning are opening up new possibilities for transformation.
My own work has been shaped by this exciting new science of relationship as well as 30 years as a couples therapist, treating people in over a dozen countries around the world. Again and again, my experience as both a clinician working with couples and as a trainer has taught me that people change best in an atmosphere of safety, creative adventure, and group support.
I hope the workshops and training programs described on this website can offer you a means of realizing your own growth goals, whatever they may be.
