Hello! I’m Jason Polk, relationship therapist and owner of Colorado Relationship Recovery.
My passion is helping couples have a relationship that thrives.
I’ve been in hopeless places in past relationships. In fact, I have been divorced. I know how much disconnection hurts and is sad and confusing whether it’s occurred over time or suddenly.
My painful relationship past has motivated me to help couples avoid such experiences.
I’ve studied and trained with internationally-known relationship therapists such as Stan Tatkin and Terry Real. I’m a Level II PACT (psychobiological approach to couple therapy) therapist and I’m also trained in RLT (relational life therapy).
During my journey towards relational health, I’ve been able to reflect on things I’ve done wrong. For the sake of not taking up too much space here, I will summarize some past pernicious missteps:
- Not putting the relationship first
- Not trusting the basic goodness of my partner – that she’s perfectly imperfect.
I’ve been fortunate to learn that the more I put the relationship first, the more freedom I have because of trust. The more I trust the basic goodness of my partner, the more I can appreciate her just as she is.
I’m a lifelong learner and my passion is reading books, attending trainings, and participating in workshops on relationships. I’m grateful that I can apply what I’ve learned to my practice as well as to my marriage.
Now that I’m happily married, I believe that if motivated, everyone can have a relationship that thrives. Basically, if I can do it so can you!
