Couples Therapy

1702087555It’s like you’ve forgotten how to be friends.

Conversations feel forced, complaints have turned to criticism, and there’s obvious tension in the room whenever you’re together.

The constant chorus of grievances never ends.

“It’s so selfish of you to always work late and expect me to take care of the kids alone.” “Why can’t you ever remember anything I asked of you?” “Why do I always come last on your list of priorities?”

You want to feel connected again.

After a long day of work, it would be lovely to come home and relax on the couch with your partner while you reflect on your day together.

But, instead, you barely talk to one another. Even when you’re in the same room, you feel so alone.

You go through the motions of a couple (attending children’s plays, hosting dinner parties, taking family vacations), but it’s like you’re living two separate lives.

Therapy can help you rebuild what you’ve lost.

Therapy is not designed to resolve or eliminate conflict (I bet you weren’t expecting me to say that!). It’s actually meant to guide you and your partner in learning to navigate through moments of conflict and accept one another for who you are.

No matter what problems you’re dealing with, we can find a solution. Common issues include:

  • Patterns of miscommunication
  • Emotional withdrawal
  • Lack of intimacy
  • Power struggles
  • Disagreements over values and priorities (finances, parenting, in-laws, etc.)
  • Balancing work/life stressors

Let’s work together to create the healthy and functioning relationship you and your partner deserve.

Find your sense of purpose and learn how to move through conflict instead of living with it.
