Let’s be honest, if you’re looking for couples therapy, you’ve probably heard it referenced more times than you’d like to remember! The thing is, communication is the cornerstone to healthy relationships, and effective communication can often lead to greater intimacy, whether that be physical or emotional. Learning how to communicate with your partner is just as important as learning how your partner hears and interprets information, so you can remain on the same page throughout your discussions.
Do you feel like your partner isn’t really hearing what you’re trying to say, or like you’re trying to meet your partner’s needs but it’s just never really good enough? You might feel like just talking to your partner quickly turns to yelling, or like your partner never does what you’re asking them to. If that sounds like you, I can help you and your partner to learn how to talk through it. Through open and honest dialogue, couples can gain insight into each other’s perspectives, needs, and desires–which lays the foundation for empathy and connection.
You might be seeking therapy to address conflicts and challenges within your relationship. I can’t solve them for you, but what I can do is empower your relationship with the tools you need to resolve them constructively (spoiler alert: effective communication!). Imagine being able to work together to solve a problem, rather than meet it with blame and defensiveness.
