Communication Training

An important part of most marriage counseling is helping partners improve their communication skills. Many people think that better communication means expressing themselves more clearly. The truth is that learning to listen is almost always the key to better communication and enhanced relationship satisfaction.

My clients learn techniques to

  • Listen better to avoid misunderstandings and improve good will in the relationship
  • Validate each other’s position, even if they don’t agree
  • Connect on a feeling level, creating true intimacy

Through this process an atmosphere of safety and trust is established in which past hurts are released, conflicts are resolved and animosity is replaced by understanding and compassion.
