Do you find that your relationship, once a haven of comfort and excitement, has slipped into mundane routines, diminishing the spark that once brought you together? It's a common trajectory for many relationships to evolve from initial exhilaration to a phase where tension and complacency overshadow the joy and safety you once felt. Understanding the phases of love – limerence, the power struggle, and mature love – can be pivotal in navigating these changes.

In the limerence phase, everything feels magical, filled with passion and idealization. It is 10,000 volts of energy that makes you feel alive. It can last anywhere from 2 hours to about 2 years. However, this often gives way to the power struggle phase, where differences and conflicts come to the forefront, challenging the harmony of your relationship. It's a critical juncture where many couples feel lost, but it's also a crucial opportunity for growth. Some people can endure this phase for decades never really moving into the next step. With the right tools and guidance, you can transition into mature love – a phase characterized by deep understanding, mutual respect, and a rejuvenated sense of partnership. A love that the Gottmans call the master couple. Getting to master coupleship can take 5-10 years with intentional work. 

Recognizing these phases as natural processes in the evolution of a relationship can empower you with hope and direction. In our sessions, we'll explore these stages intellectually and emotionally, equipping you with strategies to navigate each phase effectively. Together, we can transform challenges into opportunities for strengthening your bond, reigniting the spark, and rediscovering the safety and joy in your relationship.
