Karina on Working with Couples:

 

Couples seek coaching to learn more about themselves and each other. They may also want to improve communication, or need support repairing trust or intimacy. Couples often come to me when they find themselves in repetitive negative loops. Together, we will explore the dynamics in your relationship and learn how to help each person feel heard, understood and cared for. My role is to help both individuals ground in their most calm, clear, centered Self, and bring that into the relationship. As well as to facilitate skill building to foster productive communication, understanding and empathy. Our sessions will bring clarity as what is needed to create harmony. This work often draws partners closer together. It can also help partners navigate healthy uncoupling if that is in the highest way.

 

How Does Scheduling Work?

Couples Coaching works in cycles of three sessions. The first two are individual sessions for the partners separately. The third session is with everyone together. 

 

Once a coaching cycle is completed, we'll repeat another cycle at a frequency that works for all of us.
