Do you feel like you’re not being heard by your partner? Or not appreciated?
Is there an issue surrounding a lack of faithfulness, money, being a parent, the in-laws, or work?
Or maybe you’d both just love to connect on a deeper level?
While we now know that the old myth that “half of all marriages end in divorce” is simply false (the US divorce rate has been falling for decades and current studies estimate it’s closer to only ⅓), it doesn’t mean marriage is getting any easier with time. After all, if we expand this figure to include unhappy de facto relationships and add in the ill-contented twosomes who will never divorce, we can see there are large numbers of seriously annoyed, frustrated, glum people like you who are desperate for a change.
But what if you could avoid becoming a statistic?
What if you could have the relationship you’ve always craved?
If any of these sound like your relationship…
– You and your spouse don’t communicate honestly or with respect
– You, or your partner, have had a betrayal of trust
– You live like roommates rather than lovers
– You feel isolated and alone
– You are together only because of your children
– You’d love a wonderful life together
– You both genuinely want to improve your relationship
…Then couples counseling could be for you.
Whether aimed at addressing small issues or dealing with potentially relationship-breaking challenges, therapy can help you each feel valued, heard, and connected.
In the non-judgmental, supportive environment we provide, you and your partner’s individual wants and needs are combined with our evidence-based techniques and therapies to build confidence, openness. and respect. We’ll work together to improve your relationship with each other for the long-haul.
By encouraging honest, empathetic communication and using strategies and techniques that aid hearing, healing, and clarity, couples counseling becomes an empowering process for both you and your partner.
When both partners are provided with the right tools, appropriate approaches, and healthy insights, relationship frustrations often ease or disappear. Problems become manageable, validation & openness increases, and mature communication paves the way for a calmer, happier relationship and the healthiest way forward together. If you would like me to show you how counseling could create lasting, positive change for you and your partner, please contact me today for an appointment.
Couple therapy can be enormously valuable in many situations
I enjoy my experience with couples. I work with many couples from a variety of backgrounds. Some are dating and considering commitment. Many are married and hope to regain their essence and feel joy and strength from the relationship. Some have experienced infidelity and issues of trust, and others feel stuck in cycles of anger and closeness. When I work with couples, I work in a balanced way. We don’t focus on blame or fault. We start from the present and over time look back so you understand what brought you together, how you get stuck and ways to move beyond. We will work together to help you better understand yourselves and each other. Along the way. you will learn to hear and appreciate each other’s perspectives, and also feel heard. You will work to create new options and find more joy.Some of the areas couples are coming in for are:
- Couples who have lost touch and appreciation for each other
- Couple dealing with loss of intimacy
- Couples adjusting to a new marriage or commitment
- Couples who are dating and would like to build a strong foundation towards commitment
