What is PACT? How can it help MY relationship?

Baltimore Couples:: Are you desiring a deeper understanding and connection? 
Well then... Let's get OFF the couch and get face-to-face via PACT. 

Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT) - Founder: Dr. Stan Tatkin

PACT teaches both #partners how to #soothe each other's brain during times of #stress. The result is two brains that are chemically wired together and a #securelyfunctioningrelationship . 

A PACT session is unlike any couple's therapy you may have experienced before.

** If you've been to standard couple's therapy, you may have left your session feeling worse than when you started. 

PACT sessions are 90 mins - 3 hours in length to ensure a positive result with each experience. 
Couples will face each other in rolling chairs, along with other postures as determined by the clinician while maintaining eye contact. Prolonged eye contact between partners allows defensive walls to come down, allowing the clinician to access core issues with less resistance.

What do you get when you mix #logotherapy with #Phish lyrics?


"as time leaks out, my life leaks in" 

Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy is based on the premise that the human person is motivated by a “will to meaning,” an inner pull to find a meaning in life. :: The following list of tenets represents basic principles of logotherapy: 

#Life has meaning under all circumstances, even the most miserable ones. • Our main motivation for living is our will to find meaning in life. • We have freedom to find meaning in what we do, and what we experience, or at least in the stand we take when faced with a situation of unchangeable suffering. •••

Mash-up: #viktorfrankl + #phish +  @space_between_counseling = meaning! #musictherapy

Space Between :: White Space = Pause

Happy Saturday. Don't forget to provide #whitespace. After this BLOG post - I am on a whitespace break for the whole weekend. 

:::::: Weekends (especially, summer weekends) are more enjoyable when #busyness isn't on the agenda. All that rush: Go here! Do that! Must do! ::::::

::What is Whitespace? ::
"Whitespace,” or “negative space” is the #spacebetween between elements & events. { It's the white-zones on your calendar OR within your day that is NOT planned but is purposely placed. } 

What does providing whitespace do for you? 
It heals. It connects. It repairs. It creates. It pauses. 
Whitespace is extremely important in maintaining a positive and healthy mental state.
So many times we make ourselves ridiculously busy. We think we have to do everything and get as far as we can. If we provide whitespace. We provide a space for calm, creativity, connection & repair from busyness.

*** Also know as the {space between} hence one of the many reasons my therapy office has the name @space_between_counseling
