Love is a verb. Love – the feeling – is the fruit of love the verb or our loving actions – Stephen Covey
So to keep that loving feeling, the verb of love calls us to action, to learning, to commitment and to evolution. Love is a crucible for both partners’ growth, learning and healing. When love is all about feeling, you are usually in the honeymoon stage of relationship. It’s a great and important stage and a lot of the connection that develops in this period of time helps to sustain the relationship when the going gets tough.
But to move deeper into relationship requires more than just the beautiful feeling that gets things started. At the same time so many of us enter into our relationships expecting that we’ll ‘just figure it out.’ Thinking, maybe, that just because we are, by nature, relational beings, we should automatically have all the skills and knowledge to create sustainable, healthy relationships.
Imagine just putting on a pair of skis and expecting, just because you have legs, you should know how to ski well!
What a lot of pressure!
While I love love, the romance, spontaneity and the excitement, after working with couples for over a dozens years, I also have come to greatly value ‘the business of relationships.’ By this I mean the skills, tools and learning that can help to create and nurture healthy relationships over the long term.
Just like skiing, this doesn’t just happen automatically.
The great news is there are specific thinks we can do in our relationships that can make a big difference to our feelings of connection, safety, excitement and desire.
The process of creating healthy relationships is one of the things that really drew me to counselling. I love working with people who are interested in cultivating their connection.
To help support couples who are interest in creating and nurturing strong connection, my colleague Julie Petrynko and I have created a 5 week course starting Wednesday January 10th in-person in Squamish.
We will be covering a number of areas including:
- Learning a roadmap for communication.
- Learning ways to repair + reconnect after conflict.
- How your attachment style and nervous system state impacts your connection.
Interested in deepening your connection? Join us for a learning adventure! 🙂

This is NOT the right workshop for you if:
- You are fighting regularly and fights tend to escalate (verbally or physically attacking).
- You don’t feel confident about being able to discuss these topics without fighting.
This workshop is educational and not meant as therapy. If you are experiencing any of the above I would recommend seeking couples counselling to get individual support for yourselves and your relationship.
