Couples & Family Therapy
Relationships are tricky.
Being in a relationship is hard work.
When you were in romantic brain, everything was so easy.
Now you’re in the conflict phase. This is where you either learn to make your conflict constructive, or it becomes destructive.
Some couples hang in there for decades with destructive conflict.
Or, maybe you just feel disconnected, alone, and sad in your relationship.
Are your tired of having the same old fights or walking on eggshells?
Are you tired of bickering over nothing and having no intimacy?
Make your conversations safe again.
It’s easy to experience negativity when you feel attacked, blamed, criticized or judged.
When you experience each other negatively, you go into fight or flight – making it impossible to meet each other’s needs.
Your partner cannot meet your needs when they feel under attack. They can however hear what you need and even act on that when you learn to eliminate negativity.
Marriage is hard.
Blending families can be even harder.
Your dealing with additional personalities that are a big challenge. Unfortunately, when you remarried, you didn’t talk about each other’s roles with your perspective children. You both have very different parenting styles and different dynamics with your ex’s.
Counseling can help you get on the same page and make decisions together. It can help you stay connected and avoid a second divorce.
There is a better way.
Relationship Counseling can teach you the tools you need to accept each other’s differences and find solutions that work for both of you.
It can help you regain emotional intimacy and find healthy ways to communicate.
Rediscover laughter and remember why you fell in love.
