Often couples will report they fear that their relationship is beyond repair and they feel hopeless and helpless. Communication has broken down, trust has been broken, and sex has become almost nonexistent. Some couples have fundamentally strong relationships but are facing a specific crisis and want the help of a counselor.
Couples come into counseling for a variety of different issues including communication & conflict resolution, sexual & intimacy issues, fighting and anger issues, identity and role issues, jealousy, infidelity, money and finances, addiction, family and in-law struggles, stepfamily issues, gender roles, infertility / adoption, and many more.
Healthy communication is a key ingredient in a successful relationship. Successful couples know how to communicate in a way that can actually improve their relationship. Counseling can help you to understand the way in which you presently communicate, and then teach you new skills & solutions to improve ways to talk to each other.
As a team, we work together to:
Identify negative patterns that are hindering the quality of your relationship & friendship.
Learn how to stop blaming each other so you can work through problems without power struggles.
Find healthy ways to relate to each other, which will strengthen the quality of your partnership.
Get through the difficult phase when ‘the business of love’ interferes with romance and connection.
Reconnect to the love and passion of your earlier relationship.
