Couples Counseling

When the relationship needs help…

 

“The purpose of a relationship is discovering who we are.  We discover what is within in us in each other’s company.”

-Lucy Artigas

 

When does the relationship need help?

According to Dr. Gottman, “69% of conflict in relationships is about unresolved, perpetual problems.”

Typically, there are normal and expected differences in a relationship: points of viewapproaches, and expression of love.

However, there comes a point where those differences are no longer bearable. 

Perhaps the source of conflict gets lost in continuous arguments and differences.

Insultsyellingname callingblaming, and shutting down are all defense mechanisms we use to protect ourselves and out of desire to be understood.

However, at the very root, all of that push us away from each other.

Sometimes, we hurt each other because we are hurting inside which makes it difficult to recover, repair or heal.

At this point, we seriously doubt the future of the relationship.

 

There is a different way. 

 

Couples counseling provides both partners to receive tools and guidance to repair and protect the relationship.

The couple has the opportunity to become aware of habits that impact communication and daily interactions.

With the support of your provider, the couple has a neutral place to address unresolved issues.

We offer the possibility to improve the quality of the relationship and consequently mental wellness.

 

There are is alway a way.
