In working with men, I often find that the successful skill-set of the workplace has not been applied to the personal/romantic relationships. I help men understand that they have the necessary skill-set and support/challenge them to use that skill-set in their personal relationships.
In working with women, I help them understand the mindset of the other and, together, we create strategies for successfully relating to them, while appropriately utilizing their own strengths.
In working with couples, I utilize, primarily, the above strategies for optimizing the contentment within my client, the coupleship. In addition, my Gottman training complements this strategy.
