Dr. Nelson explains, "I use my 25 years of counseling experience as well as the newest research in the subjects of love and desire to help participants create a passionate connection in their intimate relationship." Using the proven techniques of Imago Relationship therapy, developed by Harville Hendrix, the author of the best-selling book, Getting the Love You Want, Tammy teaches couples and students ways to create erotic connections, increase sexual generosity and sexual empathy, and share erotic fantasies.
"The goal of the class is to help couples establish healthy communication around their sex lives," says Dr. Nelson. "Listeners on this tele-class will learn to re-sexualize long-term partnerships that may have grown stale from familiarity or boredom with routine, or which may be suffering if they are trying to figure out how to get over an affair."
"We were in a relationship where we loved each other, but we weren't 'in love,'" says Sherry, a middle-aged suburban mom, sitting in Tammy's office. "We came to Dr. Nelson to see if we could find out how to get back that passion in our marriage. It was either that or, frankly, get divorced. We were feeling pretty hopeless. After a few sessions with Dr. Nelson, we both feel, well, alive again! Our love life is better than it's ever been. And I feel like Dave really hears me, and wants to make me happy. And I feel adored and cherished. I am absolutely in love again."
Sharing needs, fantasies, and desires helps a couple experience less anxiety and more passion in every area of their lives. Learning how to listen and give to a partner, both emotionally and sexually, teaches the paradox of giving to get and opens the way for couples to deeply love again.
Dr. Nelson has helped clients of both genders and all sexual identities and ages to recharge their relationships and create long-term connection. Dr. Nelson believes a couple's connection can be forged or strengthened regardless of conflicts or boredom, using empathic dialogue and other forms of intimate communication. Dr. Nelson says, "Studies ... show that couples who have a satisfying sex life bring home their sexual needs and desires more commonly than couples who are dissatisfied with their erotic life." Her methods are also designed for those coping with infidelity, looking for better sex in marriage, or hoping to address a lack of intimacy in marriage.
