Dr. Catherine Wheeler – Couples Therapy
TOOLS FOR HEART-CENTERED LOVEWe all have that vision of a higher level of love somewhere back in the recess of our mind. We want to communicate with depth, to “feel heard” and feel supported, to be a team, to have a high level of emotional trust, and to feel like lovers, not roommates! We yearn for love to make life richer, fuller, deeper. Couples start their relationships with this rich, wonderful promise but we often lack the tools to make this vision become real. What often happens is we end up in relationships where we feel distant, like roommates or worse we feel taken for granted, used, abused, and end up stuck. This is the lowest level of love. Many times relationships vacillate between too much drama or feel bored and stale, lacking passion and fulfillment. As couples use tools they’re able to raise their relationship to a higher level. We want a much higher level of love than what our parents ever had! To create a higher level of love we have to grow out of unhealthy patterns that keep us stuck. The good news is we can do this much faster if we use tools to change our level of love.
