Presence in a Priceless Gift

Posted in

Presence is a priceless gift—one that we owe to ourselves and to our partners.

In couples’ work, I listen to the backstory—I look for the intensity of each partner’s emotion and link the emotion with their story. It is my hope that at the end of the first session, they leave with a different view of themselves—with hope, less rigidity, and possibly, a new narrative.

HOW DO I LISTEN TO

OTHERS?

AS IF EVERYONE

WERE MY

MASTER SPEAKING

TO ME HIS 

CHERISHED LAST WORDS.
