Are changes in your life causing strain in your relationship? Are you having difficulty communicating with your partner, leading to frequent arguments? Or even worse, do you feel like it’s not worth fighting anymore, that your problems are insurmountable, and the distance between you has just become too far to traverse?
Often when you or your loved one has experienced a health issue or other significant change, it can create imbalance or can highlight problems in your relationship that you’ve managed to avoid dealing with until now. Perhaps you’re now providing care for your loved one, and have begun to feel resentful and parental instead of loving and connected. Something’s been lost, and you wonder if you’ll ever feel the way you once did together. Loss and change makes it hard to feel close, but makes you long for that closeness so much more than ever.
Some issues that I work with in couples therapy include:
- Balance (Work/Life/Family)
- Chronic Illness
- Extended Family
- Mental Illness
- Role Changes and Transitions
- Grief and Loss
In these sessions, I will help you and your partner develop and reconnect with communication and intimacy, create a more loving and stronger bond together, to learn how to fight fairly and productively when you disagree, and most of all, to develop the skills you’ll need to maintain a lasting, secure, and sustaining love.
If you’re ready to make changes to grow and improve your relationship, please contact me so we can talk more. For couples therapy, I ask to please have both of you on the line during our initial phone consultation, so please choose a time when we can all talk together.
