People assume lesbian relationships are like straight relationships, just with two women.
Whoever thinks that, clearly hasn’t been in a lesbian relationship.
As Two Women, You Can Understand
Each Other So Well…
Yet Still Have Difficulties
Communicating and Connecting.
Lesbian Relationships have Stressors Others Don’t Have
As comforting and comfortable as your similarities are, you are still two individuals. And you are lesbians in a straight world.
Issues such as different levels of being ‘out‘, blurred boundaries with ex’s, sexual intimacy and family ‘drama’ are some of the things that can begin to challenge your feeling of safety in your relationship.
But You Long for the Same Thing all Couples Want…Connection
It’s painful to be stuck in misunderstandings and feeling alone in your relationship. It is such a helpless and lonely place to be. And the one you would turn to for support…she’s the one you are struggling with.
In the end, you both long to feel understood and enjoy one another again… You want to feel she ‘has your back’ and that you are a team, once again.
Every lesbian relationship benefits from TLC.
It’s complicated when your best friend is also your wife or partner.
You connected and became involved with your girlfriend (now possibly partner or wife). You had so much in common and really felt understood.
The intensity of that connection becomes the intensity of the pain when you don’t ‘feel heard’ by her. Lesbian partners depend on one another as friends, so when things aren’t good, you can feel very alone.

I am a Lesbian Couples Therapist That Teaches You Tools
In my 20+ years of working with couples, I have seen that struggling couples need to learn HOW to connect and communicate differently. So I changed things and now, I work with couples as a relationship coach.
I teach, coach, and help you actively and concretely do things differently in your relationship.
These are the ways I help and give your relationship TLC…
