The SH Method for Dating

What I didn’t know about dating, relationships, and intimacy were the blind spots and barriers we have to connection and intimacy as humans, in our cultures, and as individuals. Traditional counseling education and internships don’t explore the subjects of dating or intimacy with any depth.

They talk about relationship issues we develop because of family dysfunction and they help teach communication skills. That is helpful, but they don’t talk about what intimacy is or how to create fulfilling human connection. They don’t talk about dating culture, rules, approaches, or views. So I’ve been studying and exploring those worlds through a psychological lens. All the rules, manipulations, misunderstandings, and confusion you may have had to navigate.

Lessons learned so you don’t have to repeat them and you can get to the best parts of the story faster. Together we can remove the barriers that are in your way whether you are new to dating, feeling stuck about dating, or are back to dating after a breakup. Through all the struggles I’ve witnessed, including my own, I’ve discovered a whole new approach. Seeing our personal and community blind spots and removing barriers to connection and intimacy transforms a vicious cycle into a breakthrough.

A discovery of freedom and fulfilling connection. Life becomes suddenly more vivid and we feel more alive because meaningful connection is a timeless, deep, and sacred human need.

The SH Method for Couples Therapy in Los Angeles

What I used to believe was the traditional couples therapy approach. This approach supports couples in solving their issues through teaching communication practices and problem-solving methods. It primarily involves meeting with the couple together. However, after practicing this type of couples counseling, I realized that it misses half of the puzzle. It often leaves the couple more frustrated and upset.

What I now believe is that a holistic approach is essential for couples having breakthroughs and reaching their goals. In couples therapy Los Angeles, individual barriers to intimacy can only be effectively addressed in one-on-one sessions. Therefore, in this model, we meet with the couple both together and individually to address various barriers. In one-on-one sessions with each partner, we work to help them overcome unconscious family patterns, baggage from past relationships, past traumas, and the inner critic. Additionally, if needed, we connect our patients with holistic doctors. This helps optimize hormones, relaxation, and energy, which are key factors in building a healthy relationship and intimacy.

During the couples sessions, I support the couple in learning specialized communication techniques that support them in getting past defensiveness, and in getting past feelings of hurt, disconnection and even betrayal. We use customized techniques and approaches to help couples learn how to problem solve and experience deeper connection, love, and passionate intimacy. Once emotional intimacy is experienced and learned, you can never get over it. Life and the experience of relationship is forever transformed.
