Getting Older / Empty Nest Reestablishing New Priorities
You will at some time or another experience difficult and challenging times in your dating life, marriage or any significant relationship, regardless of the length of the relationship. You can experience difficulties in your relationships with your children no matter what age they maybe. In relationship you will experience your deepest desires, your deepest joy, your deepest heartfelt love as well as your deepest hurts, deepest fears, deepest confusions, deepest anger, and deepest ambivalence. Why is that?
You bring your personal history with you into all of your relationships. In my opinion relationships can be viewed as part of the journey of your soul. It is in the presence of the others that your issues can surface so that you can learn and grow and be the best that you can be.
Often you have not acquired the tools and learning you need to move through the difficult times; you become stuck in your relationships and do not know what to do differently. Often this translates into parenting behaviors that are not in the highest good of your children. Parenting becomes even more difficult if you are under stress.
As a relationship expert I empower individuals to move through their relationship with integrity, self-responsibility and purpose staying connected to their body, mind and spirit as they make conscious choices and act with clear intentions.
As a relationship expert I will help you to identify the obstacles, analyze the conflicts and the blocks and establish goals and action steps that will help you to improve your relationship with yourself and others so you can move beyond your current situation and any dysfunctional behavior. By improving your relationship with yourself and your husband/partner you will improve your relationship with your children. Guided parenting techniques will be given by examining each individual situation and age of the child.
