Are you unhappy in your relationship? Do you feel stuck like you don’t know how to fix the problem? Have you started separating emotionally in response to the problems? If so, you are not alone. There are many couples just like you. Some even live the rest of their lives that way. Other couples decide to come for counseling to give their relationship one more try before they decide to part. Reasons vary from wanting to stay to together and working on the relationship for their kids; to keep the family together. These are the lucky couples. When working with couples I have seen many more stay together than part ways. Do you think it may be time to pick up the phone and make an appointment for couple’s counseling?
In couple’s therapy you will learn how to rebuild the friendship, build intimacy, engage in healthier more productive ways of communicating. You will also start to have fun again like you did when you first met!
If you decide after counseling to part ways, therapy can help you navigate the transitions and feelings. I can also teach you how to “tell your children” and how to work as a parenting team from two different homes. This is VERY IMPORTANT for your children!
You don’t have to be married to benefit from couple’s therapy!
