Hi, my name is Jerry Lis
I am a counselor who specializes in helping couples on brink of divorce.
As a couples counselor I use different tools that help couples understand each other in more connecting way.
Being in a relationship often causes our behaviors that we unconsciously absorbed from our families, to emerge.
The difficulties occur when there is not enough skill to safely navigate the differences in upbringing. I help to name those difficulties and safely get pass the grief, resentment that has built over the years.
Sometimes we have to go deep into memories, sometimes it’s only a matter of skills. Witnessing our partner’s deep process can reignite the compassion and helps to rebuild connections that you long for.
I use different tools for different purposes:
- As main tool I use Terry Real‘s Relational Life therapy with couples as a certified coach
- Working with inner child model and IFS to connect with compassion to our adaptive behaviors
- Providing safe space with mediation using Non-violent communication
- Using EMDR informed skills to create resources that can help you when needed
- Creating space where you can learn and practice new skills
I am no stranger to your problems, I share my own stories from the “road less traveled” to help you navigate between challenges.
I will be thrilled having the privilege to witness the possibilities of change in your relationship.
Let’s work together!
