RELATIONSHIPS ARE FRAGILE. WE NEED TO TEND TO THEM, NURTURE THEM, AND REPAIR DISCONNECTION WHEN IT HAPPENS.
In my office, couples learn to communicate more effectively, to identify and understand their feelings, to state their needs, resolve conflicts, and rediscover their connection. Sometimes, when couples are struggling, a facilitated conversation by a third person can mean the difference between hearing each other and moving forward, or not.
At one point or another, all couples are faced with a hard moment, disconnection, or feeling as if “we aren’t what we used to be”. Even the “healthiest” of couples fight or struggle at one point in time, it is learning how to repair those disagreements and reconnect that distinguishes the survival of a relationship.
HOW I HELP
Many times when a couple is struggling, defenses kick in and create a barrier to resolving conflict. I will help you move the conversation forward instead of you getting stuck in a discussion or argument that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Together we can explore patterns in your relationship and discover what works and how to improve upon that.
Couples come to therapy for a variety of reasons such as:
- Communication breakdown
- Infidelity Issues
- Issues around sex and intimacy
- Navigating parenting
- Separation/Divorce – wanting an amicable and peaceful ending
