Families are complex social systems. Each member influences the others in dynamic and often complicated ways. The system needs attention, care, communication and cooperation from its members in order to function in a healthy way. Because families are so complex, there is a lot of room for conflicts, difficulties in communication and misunderstanding. Alienation and loneliness can occur.
In couples relationships, a complex dynamic is also at work. It may be a good, strong, relationship but never the less, something is wrong and we can’t always identify the core issue or issues. We feel scared and angry and often can become blaming, accusatory and “fixed” in our view of our partner.
REACHING OUT FOR HELP
With the tools of deep listening, compassionate engagement, modeling and boundary setting, we work to untangle the web of despair and foster healing and growth.
- We will work on the foundations necessary to rebuild trust.
- We will analyze the root of misunderstanding and conflict.
- Once the intensity of anger has been quelled and the roots understood, we can then put behavioral changes and healthier strategies into place.
