- Are you unhappy with your relationship?
- Do you have the same fights over and over again?
- Do your fights get nasty or hurtful?
- Are you feeling less loved or secure than you want to?
- Have you experienced a betrayal of trust?
- Have you heard "I love you but I'm not in love with you"?
How will couple's counseling help?
- It will offer a safe place to discuss tense subjects.
- It will interrupt negative and destructive patterns of interaction.
- It will provide strategies and skills for conflict resolution.
- It will identify strengths and assets in your relationship.
- It will promote improved communication.
- It will help you rediscover the romance.
Because couples entering counseling may have established a pattern of accusation
and blame, they are often afraid that counseling will be more of the same. The work
of learning to communicate more productively begins in the first session. I believe
that with most issues, there is no “right” or “wrong”. The goal is to understand each other’s perspective and to find a “win-win” resolution of your differences.
