Sacred Space

Erica and Elliott were making nice progress in couples counseling. Fewer negative incidents occurred in between our sessions. Erica wanted to work more on her connection with Elliott. She requested making sacred space in which technology didn’t get in the way.

Sacred space would include no phones upstairs after 9:00 pm. They also agreed that there would be no use of technology when they walked the dog and had dinner together.

Elliott didn’t know when Erica needed to experience more of a connection. So he suggested she say, “I’d like to have a conversation.” These words would become code for her need to connect. Now they were actively looking for more moments of connection with fewer distractions.
