Conflict and Conversation
We couldn’t be more thankful that Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona was there to help these couples through some very complex issues in this week’s episode. ***huge round of applause***
Ryan and Jessica
Ryan admits to ‘frustration’ with the mismatch in their communication styles. Understatement.
Ryan and Jaclyn
Jaclyn leaves for her conference in FL and Ryan properly ignores her. Ouch.
After getting some sound advice from his buddies, Ry decides it’s time to face the Key West music.
When Jac calls him out on his behavior, it leaves him speechless.
The silent ride from the airport is even more awkward than the wedding. Yikes.
He’s afraid to express his feelings for fear of hurting Jac. But in the end, gives her a heartfelt and sincere apology.
Is it enough to bring down the walls they have started to erect?
Sean and Davina
Sean and Davina continue to practice the two step forward and one step back move.
I’m totally using the “do you think it’s possible” line Dr. Joseph uses on Davina. And my husband looks just like this when I do.
Both Sean and Davina draw from their past experiences and are feeling unfairly rejected.
Despite being two steps back, Sean and Davina try to build on common ground.
Sean seems more open and relaxed. Davina is hoping for a transformation to connect on an intimate level.
Is this a step in the right direction?
A Bee in My Bonnet
For this week’s “Bee” I reached out to Dr. Joseph Cilona for insight into his sessions with the couples.
His critical lens is so encompassing, I had to give it it’s very own blogpost.
