Are You Struggling in Your Relationship?

Are you and your partner stuck in a pattern of conflict and disconnect? Do you feel like the relationship is a source of stress rather than a refuge from your day? Are you avoiding difficult conversations because you don’t know how to resolve things peacefully? Do you feel like you are missing each other all the time in your communication and end up frustrated and angry? Maybe you miss the times when you were in love, when being together was light and fun, and when you felt like a team. Maybe you no longer feel the spark and the romance because you’ve both been so busy and wrapped up in work, family, and responsibilities. 

Rough patches in relationships are normal. However, if the negative cycles have taken over your relationship and you are feeling more alone than together, it is a good time to get some extra help and support. A dedicated and skilled couples therapist can help you understand the patterns in your dynamic, identify what you are feeling and needing from your partner, help you communicate your feelings to each other in ways that you each can hear them, and help you respond to each other’s needs accurately. This is the foundation for clear communication, trust, and intimacy. 

“Isn’t hate merely the result of wounded love?”
