Couples / Partners
You would think it would be easy to tell someone you love what you want and need. BUT IT IS NOT. Sometimes, even with the best intentions, we leave things up in the air and don’t communicate as effectively as we would like. We can also demonstrate our worst behaviors without thinking twice when we had no intention of acting that way.
Fortunately, relationships are not stamped out on day one and fit into a mold forever. Relationships are messy moving targets. Relationships are constantly growing and renewing to match the needs of its participants and the environment surrounding them.
Your adult relationships should be a source of support, feedback, strength and serve a purpose. Even if that purpose is to provide a place for you to receive and give caring and love; like friendships and intimate partnerships.
We work with you and your partner to identify systemic and historical issues present in the relationship. Dive into the emotions AND thoughts that are in process when the relationship seems tilted and conflict takes over. Spouses or partnership counseling does not have to be a never ending open box of difficult questions. Spouse / partnership counseling can be direct and provide real-world results you can feel. You and your partner(s) are the experts on your relationship(s). We are not here to re-define your love or to make suggestions about who you should love. We are here to make sure you have SUCCESS at love.
