Many are successful in many areas of their lives, but are struggling in their relationship. Some have tried tried active listening, the weekend get-a-way, or any number of other popular activities believed to rekindle relationships.  These methods just do not in and of themselves create lasting positive change in relationships.  They need extra help.  Some have recently gone through a life transition like buying a new home, having a new baby or changing careers.  Some couples are trying to recover from the recent discovery of infidelity. Some couples have just “reached their limit” and decided it is time to take action and make a positive change.  They believe despite how bad things may be currently, there is hope that with work and outside help they can turn things around.

Come together and invested in making a positive change in YOUR relationship!

As a relationship specialist, you can expect that during couples therapy I will be there for both you and your partner equally – guiding, encouraging, and challenging each of you in your work to have the relationship you both desire.


We will begin by identifying the current issue(s) as well as fully assessing the relationship to identify those areas in the that are working and those that are not.  I will work with you to learn and practice skills to manage conflict more effectively, as well as identify those aspects of your communication that do not work and change them. We will explore how to strengthen the bond in your relationship, improve the friendship in your relationship, and increase the positivity in your relationship.

How I work with Couples

  • Your relationship is suffering from frequent conflict
  • You are feeling disconnected from your partner
  • The passion in your relationship is a distant memory
  • Life has kept you so busy that you have loss sight of your relationship

Even if things look very dim now, there is a way to get your relationship back on track.  You can regain the intimacy and friendship you miss. You can grow old together in a happy, loving relationship.  Patrick Connelly uses the latest research based interventions to:  get you re-connected, increase affection, increase passion, and increase commitment.
