|“This single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” – George Bernard Shaw|
Having worked with over 3,000 couples since opening my private practice specializing in marital therapy in 2004, I’ve learned a lot about a tendency in couples to recall the same conversation in different ways — and dismiss or distrust their spouse’s perspective. This inability to get on the same page can undermine or destroy your marriage if you continue to just over talk or shut down on each other, and grow apart when you see your problems and/or the solutions differently. Over time, this practice can be catastrophic. I am thrilled to announce…“The ABCs of Communication.”
Of all the things we could do to help you build and leave a Legacy, this one is the absolute best.
Here’s what you will learn:
– The “3 Types of Problems” that ALL couples face — and how to overcome them.
– Understand the “Happy Couple” magic formula of 5:1, Positive to Negative events ration. Happy Couples make a habit and Unhappy Couples routinely violate.
– Why you may not have a communication problem, but a trust issue. I find most couples that come into my office are extremely articulate but do not trust the messenger. Therefore, it doesn’t really matter how well their message is articulated. Let’s start to address the real issue underlying most miscommunication: TRUST.
– How to understand the “ABCs of Communication” to become friends again (vs frienemies) and start reconnecting.
Plus, we’ll have some fun, too!

Is There a Conflict Between Your Need for Space and Your Partner’s Need for Intimacy?
From time to time I get couples coming in for therapy with one of them complaining about the other being too clingy and smothering … not giving them enough space, while the other simultaneously complains they weren’t being loved and feel completely rejected rejected by their “self-absorbed” spouse.
Take this quiz and discover you and your partner “space” styles, needs and compatibility…
