COUPLES THERAPY AND RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING
GETTING THE HELP YOU NEED
Couples often come to therapy when the relationship is at a tipping point. You may be seeking counseling because you are finding it difficult to feel tenderness that was once easy to share with each other. Perhaps you find yourself feeling frustrated with repetitive arguments that only lead to despair. You feel sad that the love and tenderness that was so once so easy now seems elusive.
Relationship problems often arise from hurts that we experienced as children. We unconsciously pick lovers who we hope will heal us and help make us whole. As we become close and deepen intimate relationships, our earliest wounds and fears rise to the surface causing pain and internal isolation.
DEEPENING YOUR SENSE OF SELF AND EACH OTHER
I work with couples to break the cycle of pain and frustration through the use of authentic communication. I gently provide space for clients to truly express themselves and listen to their partners without blame and judgment. This process of deep emotional communication builds new connections that allow you to know yourself and each other as you build a deeper and more understanding relationship.
We will work together to help you find and express aspects of your relationship that are getting in the way or closeness, like personal boundaries, unspoken needs and unconscious desires. You will also discover and talk about your unique combination of strengths and emotional connection. Through this exploration and insight, you will start to feel more openness, aliveness and capacity to express yourselves.
