Connection and Intimacy
What it is about...
When you started your relationship with your partner, it was something special. There is nothing like being able to completely be yourself, to feel loved and appreciated, and to be able to reciprocate it with your amazing person. Unfortunately, as time goes by, some couples find that the newness and excitement begins to wear off. Staying connected gets a little harder because of busyness, distractions, children, etc. Many of our clients have indicated that at some point they looked up and noticed that the passion and intimate connection that was once there has faded.
How it works...
Our team uses an experiential approach to help couples learn how to meet each other where they are. We explore the defensive and protective cycles that couples experience. The results of these cycles have been emotional and physical disconnect, hurt feelings, or even betrayal. We give you the tools and experiences right in session in real time to begin developing new moves that lead to more fulfilling emotional connections and restoration.
We have two therapists on our team that are well equipped to meet your needs as a couple.

Are we a good fit for these services?
We work with all kinds of issues that couples face. When trust is broken, we call this an attachment injury. These can range in intensity from unmet expectations to betrayal. Our goal is to help you identify negative cycles of behavior that keep you feeling stuck. First, we will do the important steps necessary for slowing down the process that leads to fights or avoidance. The way we do this is by creating a safe and supportive space for emotional vulnerability that has previously felt risky. Your therapist will be with you and your partner every step of the way and we believe in doing the transformative work right in the office. We will not talk about talking and send you on your way. What we have learned is that true connection and intamacy comes from the ability to navigate vulnerability well together. This can only be done when we create a dynamic that promotes mutual accessibility, responsiveness, and honest engagement between partners.
Are there things we need to consider prior to starting?
Our tried and true therapy approach for working with couples is based on honest communication and trust. We have a very good success rate in working with couples to help them heal from many difficult circumstances. However, if there is current infidelity, substance abuse, or violence in the relationship, we cannot in good conscience ask partners to take the risk to trust one another. On the other hand, if any of these issues have been present in the past and no longer active, we would love to work with you in overcoming these areas of betrayal that create so much distance and distress in your relationship. If you have questions about whether you and your partner would be good candidates, lets schedule a consult. Adam Maisen and Camden Lambert are both equipped to answer your questions and provide support for you in your next steps.
