"Intimacy is not something that just happens between two people; it is a way of being alive.
At every moment, we are choosing either to reveal ourselves or to protect ourselves, to value ourselves or to diminish ourselves, to tell the truth or to hide. To dive into life or to avoid it.
Intimacy is making the choice to be connected to, rather than isolated from, our deepest truth at that moment." 
- Geneen Roth -

At Alive Intimacy, I offer help to overcome barriers to intimacy.

Request an Appointment

Some of the most common barriers to intimacy are:

  • Unknowingly re-enacting roles learned in childhood within adult relationships
  • Engaging in “misery stabilizers” such as substance dependence and other forms of escapism
  • Unmanaged mental health conditions and unhealed past trauma
  • Unrealistic expectations for what a romantic relationship can provide
  • Consistent use of “losing strategies” and lack of knowledge of effective relational skills
  • Lack of prioritization of the needs of the relationship

Learn to spot these intimacy barriers within yourself.
Strengthen the part of you that is capable of deep intimacy.
Connect with your partner in new ways.
