All couples have conflicts. The difference between happy and unhappy couples is whether they have a healthy process of repair. Everett specializes in helping couples develop that repair process. The way many couples argue leaves them feeling frustrated, distant, and unfulfilled instead of feeling resolved and reconnected. Eventually they stop talking because it just turns into a fight. Approaching couples from an attachment perspective he helps couples experience the closeness and connection they desire. The process entails identifying their negative patterns, stop blaming each other and learn how to find more effective ways to respond to each other.
