A New Level of Relationship Care

About

The relationship you have with yourself and others is the essential to fully living your life. Relationships can be a vehicle for growth when you look within and learn the necessary tools for change to happen. It starts with recognizing that your relationship needs some kind of nurturing, care and healing. When you can be open to learning the necessary tools for your relationship, true healing, happiness and fulfillment will follow. Dr. Pataky and her team will assist, support, guide and teach you everything you'll need to develop relational connection.

Issues we may address are: Communication, conflict resolution, money and finances, sex and intimacy issues, fighting and anger issues, gender roles, addiction, in-law struggles, religion, values, pregnancy, and many more. The shift in a relationship can bring about many emotions, including sadness, confusion, and despair. We’ll address everything that you’re feeling, as well as your concerns, and we’ll collaboratively have a plan and set goals to get the relationship back on track.

The first couples session is a 2-hour session, this will serve as an assessment, along with discussing goals.This first session also provides each individual to walk away feeling heard by their partner, which is the beginning to the healing process.

Couples still fall victim to the many limiting roles, scripts, schemas, erroneous beliefs, and toxic conditioning, surrounding relationships and intimacy. As a result this has created barriers to one of life's richest gifts: The gift of intimacy. Intimacy is the ability to not only accept and love your inner-most self unconditionally, but the capacity to then fully share oneself with another human being. Allowing oneself to be seen for whom they truly are. As mindfulness teacher Jack Kornfield said ”The things that matter most in our lives are not fantastic or grand. They are moments when we touch one another". This is only possible when we allow ourselves to be seen in our truth, open and vulnerable. 

Our relationship and intimacy experts, assists couples find alignment with their thoughts, emotions and physical bodies. We assist couples in becoming more vulnerable, transparent, and open with one another, while creating a safe environment. When we start aligning our body, mind and spirit, our capacity for compassion and love expands. And as a result, our relationships become extraordinary. 

Marriage/Couples Therapy

Couples often come in for therapy at a point where they believe their relationship is beyond repair. Distressing events can happen, communication may have broken down or and sexual intimacy may not longer exists. Giving yourselves a chance to address this in therapy increases your chance of resolution, healing and repair. Couples seek therapy for a wide range of reasons.

More often than not, couples seeking therapy have trouble communicating effectively. Consequently, there is a break down in one or many areas of the relationship. Perhaps trust is broken, feelings of betrayal, or desire may have diminished. Other couples fight and argue about the same things over and over again never finding a way to resolve their issues. As this continues, hurt, emotional pain, fear o frustration can increase and eventually jeopardize the relationship.

Infidelity Healing

One of the greatest challenges a couple will face is infidelity. This level of pain and devastation may be so extreme that you question every part of the relationship. As easy as it is to point the finger, in infidelity therapy, we will look at and explore both of you and how each contributed to the break down of the relationship. The causes of infidelity vary and can be incredibly complex. Affairs can happen in happy marriages as well as troubled ones, and although we’re all susceptible to the betrayal, the good news is that the majority of marriages not only survive infidelity, but they can become stronger and more intimate after therapy. The infidelity does become a part of your story, but it does not have to define you or your relationship.
