No couple is created equal. But every couple experiences conflict. Conflict is a normal part of a relationship as two distinct individuals learn to integrate their lives. Problems can arise when couples communicate their wants and needs in a manner that does not resonate with their partner. This may result in unmet needs and increased disagreements in your quest for more connection and understanding.
Do you find yourselves arguing about the same things repeatedly? Do minor things your partner does really irritate you because you are upset about something much deeper and they just don't get it?
Couples counseling can help you and your partner uncover the deeper issues troubling the relationship, such as lack of trust or jealousy problems rooted in fear of abandonment. Therapy can create that safe and non-judgmental space for you and your partner to explore thoughts, feelings, and disagreements in a way that promotes your connection and understanding of each other. Let me help you remember why you fell in love in the first place.
I work with couples on a variety of issues including:
Ongoing Conflict or Tension
Jealousy & Insecurity
Transition Through Break Ups or Separation
Parenting Skills or Blended Families
