Lee Kaufman

Life Coach

By creating an honest, human connection, Lee Kaufman helps people to calm down and see their unhealthy, and sometimes even destructive, patterns for what they are—simply patterns. Then, through a clear and fresh approach, he lays out a path, one doable and manageable step at a time, to bring forward healthy change.

Lee began his work with the Marriage Recovery Center in January, 2018. Alongside Dr. Hawkins, he has developed a popular program, Men on Purpose, devoted to bringing true growth and healing to men who struggle with being emotionally disconnected from the world around them. He also runs a class on Anger Management and is currently developing a 6-week program on the topic as well.

Over the last 15 years, Lee has worked with people on healing nearly every aspect of their lives, from the physical (yoga, meditation, breathe work), to the emotional (self-concept and love), to the intellectual (career and financial pursuits).  He also spent over a decade in traditional finance roles, so he fully understands the pressures and rigors of our modern-day life.

You Don’t Need to Process Your Anger with Your Partner

When we’re extremely angry, physiologically we’re not a whole lot different than a child throwing a tantrum. We’re literally not in our right mind. Blood has moved away from our pre-frontal cortex (the seat of conscious thought) and filled our amygdala, where the fight or flight response is triggered. We call this state being “flooded” or “triggered,” a term coined by Daniel Goleman in his bestselling book Emotional Intelligence. Basically, when you’re in fight or flight mode, you’re in no position to think or communicate logically.

Are You Setting Boundaries or Just Complaining?

One of the key issues I see in my work with clients is the inability to use boundaries and boundary-setting in a way that is healthy and productive for relationships. Boundaries are key! Why are they so important? Because if you don’t figure out how to set healthy boundaries, one or both of you will probably often be triggered, flooded, and unable to function well in your relationship. Without boundaries, you could (without realizing it) actually be feeding your relationship dysfunction instead of standing up for what’s best or right for you and the relationship.

Sex and the Need for Intimacy

One topic that frequently comes up in my sessions with clients is sex. There seem to be some questions I hear more than others, so I wanted to share some frequently asked questions and answers in this article. I hope you find these helpful!
