Let's face it, relationships can be tough! Because we each bring unique experiences, backgrounds, and cultures to the table, love is not always enough to sustain a healthy partnership. In couple's counseling we can work to create a secure emotional bond between partners through learning to be more open, attuned, and responsive to each other. Whatever the stage of your relationship, in couples can learn to be emotionally available, empathetic, and engaged with one another.
One myth about couple's counseling is that the therapist is there to take sides. This is false- I do not play favorites during sessions since the relationship is my client. Consider me the "relationship adjustor" who helps couples take an inventory of the damage that has been done to their relationship.
