Relationships grow when couples take time to slow down and connect. I want you to think about your relationship.

Most couples have conversations and to some degree, they check-in. The conversation may be about the kids, the weather, or something odd that took place.

When working with couples, I find it vital to nurture the relationship with purposeful questions. The aim is that as a couple you slow down and actively try to listen to each other. The prompts below you can do in writing form or simply by talking to each other.
