Each of us longs to be loved and accepted for the person we truly are. Love relationships, at their best, provide an opportunity to discover and nurture our authentic selves. Our need for validation and our fear of rejection is often so strong that we become guarded from the most important person in our lives; our love partner.
The soul-baring intimacy and willingness to know and be known that made the beginning of love so passionate and exciting is instead replaced with feelings of apprehension, loneliness, and alienation. We may wonder if it is possible to regain genuine connection. My work is to illuminate the true meaning of intimacy and help couples achieve and maintain it over the long term.
