While immensely rewarding, maintaining an intimate relationship can take a lot of work. Every couple experiences the stresses of everyday life, and most experience significant life changes along the way, including births, illness, career change, and loss of a loved one. While these events can place a great deal of strain on relationships, it is often the response to such stress and the communication style of each partner that can lead to conflict, feelings of distance, and lack of intimacy. Couples therapy can help partners experience an increased understanding of one another, which can lead to more effective communication, healthier conflict resolution, and a stronger sense of intimacy and connection.
We have experience in helping couples who seek therapy for:
- Unresolved conflict
- Difficulty connecting
- Conflict about child-rearing
- Conflict about sex or sexuality
- Blended families
