Over the years of practicing couples and sex therapy, I have discovered that there are different levels of intimacy that partners ebb and flow through. Usually when a couple seeks counseling and therapy help they have reached a painful place—stuck in harmful intimacy habits and patterns.
I have found it very helpful for couples to understand the level of intimacy that their relationship is functioning (or not functioning) at. I invite you to take the Intimacy Skills Quiz as an introduction to the "Five Levels of Intimacy Skills".
Understanding how you interact with your partner can transform your relationship and sex life.
