the excitement you felt when you were first getting to know each other?

The hopes and dreams you had for joining your lives together. The visions of a happy future together, hearing each other’s loving voices as you murmured good night and good morning every day, lighting up at the glimpse of your partner’s smiling face across the room, the warm comfort of each other’s scent as years turned into decades of closeness, the loving embrace and familiar touch strengthening your intimacy through good times and bad...

But now things have changed… This is not the way you ever wanted to feel

After years of working hard side by side on careers and family, now you’re feeling lonely and disconnected. You thought you were building a life together, and it’s scary to feel you’ve become strangers living separate lives in the same house.

You don’t know how to talk about important issues and different opinions. You dread every conversation.

And you’ve really tried. You want to do the work if it will help. You’ve wanted advice from friends, books, workshops, maybe even therapy. Perhaps you’ve learned some good stuff, but it didn’t stick and changes haven’t lasted.

In the pit of your stomach you’re scared - you don’t want to break up your family and end up alone.

Is For You If...

You're feeling disconnected:

You have trouble getting on the same page:

When you try to talk with each other, it's hard to hear and understand each other, and a real challenge to get on the same page.

Parenting together is a struggle:

You really want to be able to discuss, and hopefully agree on, how to raise your children together. You have a hard time seeing each other's point of view, let alone come to agreement.

You want to ask for what you need:

Whether you need listening, support, help, or a change, asking for help feels so hard, and sometimes you just stay quiet rather than risk speaking up.

Just talking calmly is a struggle:

It seems like no matter what you want to say, one or both of you feels irritated or annoyed, and you're off on the wrong foot before you even start to talk.
