Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy? Do you feel misunderstood in your relationship?
Specific tools will be shared with you to help deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship. You will learn how to productively manage conflicts and solve “resolvable” issues as well as more “gridlocked” (perpetual) issues. You will also learn to appreciate your relationships strengths and navigate through its vulnerabilities.
One of the most helpful tools you will learn in our work together will be around communication and being a more productive listener. Communication with your partner will be something you will practice over and over, in session, in our work together. We will work to help increase patience and compassion with yourself and your partner as you both practice these skills.
You can use couples counseling to help with many specific issues, including:
- Communication problems
- Sexual difficulties
- Financial challenges
- Conflicts about child rearing or blended families
- Generational patterns
It is my belief that relationships serve as a platform for our personal growth and learning. I look forward to working with you as you embark on this journey of better understanding and growth with your partner.
