Couples

Reignite the passion that you once had for each other!

Maybe you’ve landed on this page as a last ditch effort to save something that feels beyond repair, or maybe you’re in a good place but want to go deeper.

Our role is not only to provide you with tools to help unstick you from that same pattern that you get into, but to help you identify that pattern and understand each of your roles that you play in your relationship. And to do that we offer an array of levels of care.  Here is a brief overview of the options we provide.


COUPLES INTENSIVES 

Maybe you’ve landed on this  as a last ditch effort to save something that feels beyond repair, or maybe you’re in a good place but want to go deeper.

Our role is not only to provide you with tools to help unstick you from that same pattern that you get into, but to help you identify that pattern and understand each of your roles that you play in your relationship. And to do that we offer an array of levels of care.  Here is a brief overview of the options we provide.

A couples intensive is essentially accelerated couples therapy. Over a two-day period you will have 2 5 hour sessions to work to get underneath your conflict in a shorter amount of time. This is also ideal for couples whose schedules are limiting, making weekly options more challenging.

Meet Cayla and Lauren

This intensive option is led by Lauren Mokarry, a trauma-informed and somatic therapist, and Cayla Gensler, an Emotionally Focused Therapist. Lauren and Cayla integrate into these intensive sessions psychoeducation related to the ways we learn to protect ourselves during conflict, how these strategies interact to create a negative cycle, how to recognize your triggers and what conflict feels like in your body, and how to stop further escalation both individually and as a couple. There will be a large amount of time dedicated to individualized processing as a couple to understand the unhealthy dynamics in your conflict and to learn and practice skills to manage conflict, to communicate more effectively, and to strengthen connection to prevent further issues.

Prior to meeting for the  intensive, a comprehensive intake assessment is required. This will be filled out electronically and aids in Cayla and Lauren's understanding of your relationship dynamics in order to set personalized goals for your intensive session. It also allows us to ensure you are a good fit for this type of format, and to get a better understanding of what needs to be prioritized during the intensive.

Thriving Couples

Thriving Couples provides a monthly date night dedicated to intentional strengthening of emotional connection in your relationship! Thriving Couples is an on-going monthly workshop geared towards couples who want to obtain and practice the skills needed to deepen their bond, side step future arguments, and improve connection and intimacy. Healthy, long lasting relationships require investing intentional time and attention to the partnership. In each workshop, couples will receive brief education about common topics and issues that we find couples getting stuck in such as trust, intimacy, communication, and so much more!

Each workshop session will include an educational lecture, experiential activities to support play, bonding, and practice of new skills, and time for discussion.

Key Objectives:

-Increase intimacy in your relationship

-Build and refine effective communication skills

-Improve conflict management

-Experience playfulness together

-Interact with others who share the value of actively nurturing their relationships

Thriving Couples Workshops are led by Cayla Gensler, LPC and Lauren Mokarry, LPC. Cayla specializes in working with couples through an emphasis on understanding attachment and how to engage with our partners in a way that feels consistently safe and secure. Lauren specializes in trauma-informed approaches to therapy and brings an integration of knowledge and skills to support increased self awareness, emotional regulation and new experiential opportunities to rewrite the ways we interact with ourselves and our partners. Cayla and Lauren utilize EFT (emotion-focused therapy) with integration of additional trauma-informed modalities as their primary approach to couples work.
