What is the # 1 thing that causes conflict in couples‘ relationships? 

Our childhood wounds.

We all have them.

Some are more healed than others. Some are more unconscious than others.

I have worked with so many beautiful couples whose wounded selves are still running the show and they do not even realize it. When the perspective is viewed through a wounded lens, we can become defensive and reactive in our relationships. 

So how do we acknowledge these wounds? How do we move on from defensive and reactive to understanding and compassion?

There are a few steps for changing the power of these childhood wounds to move from reactivity and hurt to understanding and compassion:

  1. Awareness is the first step to changing this pattern. When you become aware that your childhood wounds are causing you to be reactive in your relationship you are part way there!
  2. Find a counselor or coach who can help you heal those wounds. You deserve to be free of them.
  3. Make part of your focus be your appreciation of your own and your partner’s strengths and special ways.  You fell in love with each other because of the great qualities you both have. Appreciation of yourself and each other


With support, these steps become clear and very helpful in moving towards more ease in your relationship. You’ll be on your way to healing these wounds and building the relationship you deserve.
