Couples Therapy Can Help You Heal and get Deeply Connected 

Disconnect and pain in your relationship can impact all the areas of your life. The impact of not having the safe haven in your relationships you deserve is profound and felt in our heart, mind, body and spirit. When our nervous system is stuck firing fight, flight, and freeze because of relationship disconnect, betrayals, lack of prioritizing pleasure, and communication issues we experience symptoms similar to post traumatic stress disorder! Our physiology is designed to be in safe relationship and when we don't have that, our system will amass the protective threat response that is designed to keeps us safe, but further erodes emotional safety in relationships. 

We believe in the power of rupture and repair. We work with relationships to cultivate safety, emotional and sexual intelligence, enhance communication skills, and deepen intimacy through solutions based and highly effective interventions that create change on a systemic level.

Compass Healing Project's Approach to Couples Therapy

Relational therapy needs to be done by experienced, well-trained, and effective systems therapists. For your healing and growth to be transformative all partners must have the willingness to see how they contribute to the dynamic and the partnerships need to be able to attend regularly or do intensive therapy schedules. 


We approach couples and relational therapy through a systems lens, we don't see one person as the problem, but that all the people in the relationship contribute to the dysfunctional dynamic. There is not one "identified patient", rather the playing field is level in the distribution of responsibility for the issues. We feel you have the power to change the dynamic through intensive intervention from a somatic, attachment, and rupture-repair perspective.

Our primary couples therapy modality is PACT: Psychobiological Approach To Couples Therapy. But we also have training and experience with Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Gottman's Couples Therapy, Imago, and The Crucible Approach.
