Many individuals contact me because they want to be happy like they were when they first met; however, now, they are struggling with the one or more of the following issues: transition to being a mom or dad, intimacy-sexual conflicts, parenting, communication, money differences, an affair, and/or problems with the in-laws.

Couples share their stories of how they used to talk, spend time together and have fun, but now, they explain that something has changed-it’s different.

Sometimes the couple is feeling scared and frustrated, not knowing where to turn.

Many couples tell me they have tried traditional couples therapy and it didn’t help them, and their call to me might be the last attempt to get their relationship back on track.

I agree with these couples.

Most couples don’t seem to improve their marriage for the long-term with traditional couples approaches because they do not address healing and repairing issues and helping couples truly find happiness.

That’s where PACT comes into the picture.

Dr. Stan Tatkin developed the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT) which integrates how the mind and body functions and gives couples the tools to create a safe and secure, long-lasting relationship.

Using the PACT approach, you will learn:

  1. how to protect and care for each other.
  2. how messages such as “Love yourself first before loving anyone else” can be confusing and misleading in relationships.
  3. how your values and beliefs keep you committed (or not committed to each other).
  4. how to create a foundation of safety, security and love to thrive
  5. how to connect in your relationships.

These topics and many more will help you develop a safe and secure-functioning relationship.

Also, PACT sessions are usually longer than traditional therapy sessions (2-3 hours); however, therapy usually requires fewer sessions.

I integrate Gottman skills, the PACT approach, and many other approaches because there is no one size fits all when it comes to seeing couples.

Therefore, in each session, I listen for my clients’ needs and pull out that specific “tool” from my therapy bag.

Currently, I am involved in Level 2 training in PACT.

One of my favorite tools from Dr. Stan Tatkin, founder of PACT, is The 10 Commandments (seen below). You will learn the significance of these principles and how to apply them to your relationship.

You can learn these Relationship Essentials and be happier too.

Stop imagining how happy you could be and start experiencing the relationship you dreamed about.
