Do you feel like your relationship has been struggling? Are there issues that seem to come up over and over that feel unsolvable? Do you feel like you and your partner have lost touch with each other's hopes and dreams? Has there been a loss of passion, interest, and intimacy in your relationship? You are not alone. Many couples experience the same struggles and there is hope.
In couples therapy you and your partner will work together in a safe space to rebuild intimacy and safety. Together you will learn the skills to deal with those conflicts and disagreements that never seem to go away. The truth is all relationships take work and all couples fight. In couples therapy you and your partner will learn to fight effectively. This means you will learn how to work through conflicts without feeling worse afterwords. No one wants to feel guilty, angry, scared, or sad for hours or days after a fight. Whether conflict is the main issue in your relationship or it is the difficulty of feeling less connected to your partner, couples therapy can help. Together we can work towards improving your ability to communicate with one another, and increase trust and intimacy in the relationship.
