When couples begin a relationship they often recognize all of the similarities between them and tend to put less focus on the differences that can lead to challenges over time. We may tend to idealize our partners as we are falling in love and not recognize that along with the similarities that brought you together are also differences.
You and your partner come from different and unique experiences that create the people that you are. These distinctive ways of thinking, ideals and thoughts about issues and topics will eventually come to the surface in every relationship. Small disagreements can lead to an eruption of feelings and turn into larger arguments if they are not handled in a healthy and productive manner.
Through the process of couples counseling we can explore your concerns both individually and as a couple. You will benefit by developing better communication skills, decreased conflict, and increased appreciation and acceptance of one another.
Areas of specialization for couples counseling include:
- Overcoming communication problems
- Conflict resolution
- Infidelity and trust issues
- Blended Families
- Premarital Counseling
- Post-Divorce counseling with co-parenting
- Grief and Loss
- Empty nesters and life transitions
