A New Take on Couple's Counseling
I help couples overcome relationship challenges most people believe are too severe to work through. I help my clients understand their emotional process, embrace what they truly need in a relationship, improve communication with their partner and use tools to navigate conflict. I specialize in working with couples involving someone who has experienced past trauma.
Typical topics covered during sessions include:
Mindfulness of actions and words that can be interpreted as devaluing.
Pivoting from "logical" arguments to emotionally supportive conversations.
Coming to an agreement about what "partnership" looks like in your relationship.
Seeking to understand your partner's emotions and experiences instead of being defensive.
Validating your partner's emotions to create intimacy and trust.
Sarah is a very genuine, caring and authentic person. I felt very comfortable and it was easy to trust her in the process. Highly recommended! Damon
Sarah is a very compassionate and knowledgeable coach, Sarah's experience of guiding a person is superb. Every time we meet, I find new discoveries and new insights. Trissa
Frequently Asked Questions About Relationship Coaching
Do we work with you online or in person?
Most of my clients meet with me over Zoom.
Do I participate in sessions with my partner or by myself?
Both individual and couples sessions are available. You will definitely participate in sessions with your partner, and individual sessions are encouraged, especially to accelerate the process. Some aspects of the relationship are better handled in individual sessions, these include feelings of abandonment due to past trauma, anxiety due to overthinking, and work/life balance challenges or addictions that affect the relationship.
What does a typical couples session look like?
Sessions last an hour. I will begin by checking in with each of you to see what has come up for you and your partner that week. Then we will discuss how the two of you have dealt with your challenging moments and identify when your interaction became most challenged. Next, I will teach you tools to navigate the particular dynamic so you can better approach it next time.
How often do we meet with you?
Ideally we will meet once per week. However, if it is better for your schedule to meet every other week, we can do that instead.
How much do you charge?
I charge $75 per session. You can either pay for each session individually. Or ask Sarah about purchasing a package.
Your next step is to set up a 20-minute phone call or Zoom consultation with Sarah.
Only one member of the couple needs to be present. And complete our Relationship Survey, and Sarah can discuss the outcome with you.
Mindful Relationship Coaching works because we are not only addressing your relationship we are also tending to what you need as an individual.
