Relationship Issues/Couples Therapy
When couples make a decision to walk the path of life together, the journey can be both rewarding and challenging at the same time. Individuals come together to experience life from a new mutual perspective where lives are connected and enhanced by the experiences they share. Going through the world with someone that you love enhances the highs and softens the lows. However, sometimes a couple will look up and realize that their paths have diverged to the point that they feel disconnected from one another. Time goes by, conflicts remain unresolved, and communication becomes unproductive, and in some cases, destructive. What was once a relationship based on love and understanding can turn into a relationship filled with resentment and anger.
Therapy is directed toward helping the couple find each other again and get back on a constructive path. The treatment plan involves an initial consultation with the couple in order to identify the issues and gain an understanding of the relationship dynamics. Generally, I then recommend two individual sessions. This is followed by a session with the couple where I will present my thoughts delineating the underlying problems, with a focus on how to resolve them.
