Couples Therapy – Improving Communication Is Possible
Being in a relationship can be one of the greatest experiences of love and connection with another person but when communication problems begin, or trust has been broken, it can become one of the most stressful and difficult of times, this is where couples therapy can help.
Often, I am asked whether couples therapy can help couples learn how to communicate better. Whether couples therapy can help couples repair resentments and establish more of an emotional bond with one another.
The answer is Yes. Couples therapy can help couples struggling within their relationship. But, it does require time and work…
Couples therapy can help when
- Things aren’t going well between you
- When communication is causing distance
- Trust has been broken
- Feeling lonely in your relationship
Common Relationship Problems
All relationships have their share of ups and downs. But, when your relationship problems are starting to impact how you relate to each other and are keeping you from feeling connected, it can filter into other areas of your life, making everything harder.
Causing overwhelm, and leaving you unsure how to fix things between you. Especially when communication issues are keeping you stuck in what feels like the same disagreements or arguments over and over again.
Communication can also become even more difficult when trust issues question the safety and bond of your relationship. And cause you to question the commitment you have toward each other. Leading to overwhelming emotions that can take over and be hard to sort out on your own.
This is especially true if infidelity has been revealed or discovered. Intense emotions can emerge and vary from minute to minute, leaving affair recovery as an unknown and difficult to even think about. Unsure whether you want to stay or go and feeling stuck or trapped.
Couples Therapy Can Help, Don’t Give Up Hope
It can help you improve communication skills, increase intimacy, and rebuild trust in your relationship.
As a couples therapist, I specialize in working with couples that want to stay together but are struggling and need help. I can help you learn how to better communicate, rebuild and restore trust, and create more intimacy in your relationship.
I can help you get to the heart of what’s happening when your communication breaks down. Help you develop a deeper connection that can enhance your relationship and help you have the relationship you need.
Couples therapy sessions may be scheduled for 50 or 80 minute sessions. During our sessions, we will meet together with you and your partner.
Many couples I work with find 80 minute couples therapy sessions helpful. Especially at the beginning of therapy. We can discuss what’s right for you when you call to schedule your initial appointment.
I also offer couples therapy intensives for couples wanting longer sessions. Please click here to learn more about therapy intensives.
My Partner Won’t Come to Couples Therapy, Can I Still See You?
Yes, we can still see each other.
