My work with couples follows the model of Terrence Real, LICSW. He has been in practice for 25 years as a Marriage and Family Therapist at the Family Institute of Cambridge. He is the author of three best selling books and founder of Real Relational Solutions in Arlington, Ma.
Using the methodology of RLT (Relational Life Therapy), couples within a few months start seeing positive changes in behaviors and start experiencing more connection in the relationship. This therapy is unique and extraordinarily effective.
What is Relational Life Therapy? It is a method of understanding the vicious cycle that keeps couples stuck in relationship, which results in building walls, distance, loneliness and frustration. In my work with couples, they get a clearer understanding of the old learned behaviors and how they keep them stuck. Then, I teach skills to find new behaviors that create more satisfaction and intimacy in their relationship. Ultimately through this practice, couples make choices to move from habitual behaviors to new learned behaviors, the relationship become more about mutual sharing and intimacy rather than a vicious alienating cycle.
I offer intensive sessions for couples looking to improve or save their relationship. Most sessions require a two hour period every two or three weeks apart. I also offer full day intensive sessions for couples. A typical intensive day long session would be 10am until 5pm with an hour long lunch break. My private practice hours are Monday through Friday, hours of 8am until 6pm.
There is homework given between sessions that range from reading books, listening to tapes, journaling, medical consultations, attending AA, Alanon or SLA meetings, or attending a specific workshop that furthers growth and healing.
