Announcement icon Free Anti-Anxiety techniques that work with Individuals, Couples, and can be taught to your children Online! (Couples & Individual therapy)
IN THE TIME OF COVID, WE ALL HAVE TO UP OUR CONNECTION GAME. Face it, you love your partner, they drive you crazy. And now that we’re around each other 24/7 and some of us with kids crawling all over us, we are not getting our needs met and we are hurting each in ways we are not proud of. Before it was an option to just let our old patterns kind of work. Not now! You are not alone! The whole world is experiencing this. What is essential now is for couples to upgrade. You won't have an 8 hour break (at work) to recover from what your partner just did. We need to actively practice COUPLES SKILLS THAT WORK. It's not optional now!
GAME PLAN: Emotional Popcorn, is fun game that helps refine emotional closeness skills. A protocol I created, Couples Anxiety Reduction Technique (CART) uses your partner's love to reduce or eliminates Anxiety triggers. A daily exercise, Holding Time, helps us internalize a felt sense of love and over time heals our wounds that set us up for painful cycles.
NEEDS NOT MET=Repetitive fights, Silent-treatments, outbursts, condescending, being right against (rather than really listening) I FOCUS ON SHIFTING THE CULTURE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP from its current negative painful cycles into being a safe place for both of you to GET YOUR ATTACHMENT NEEDS MET! You can then feel loved while together addressing your pattern.

Bay Area Couples Counseling's Groups

Couples Anxiety Reduction Technique

I explain how to do it, demo it with a couple, and answer questions about it. I'll teach one member of a couple to lead a protocol where they can help heal (reduce the trigger / fight / flight / freeze response) for their partner. They use a combination of some really sweet orchestrated intimacy while guiding their partner through a safe to use at home anti-trauma technique that works with individuals. It is beautiful when we can be part of the healing process rather than a victim of our partner's anxiety.
