My Approach to Helping
It feels like the same argument over and over: He isn't meeting your needs, she isn't giving you enough credit. You both want to connect but can't seem to find your way through the frustration, anger, and resentment enough to find your way back to one another. You've tried to talk it out but can't seem to say what you're trying to say in such a way that your partner can hear it without going on the defensive. You've read every self-help book you can get your hands on but nothing's working, not to mention you shouldn't have to be the only one doing the research. You aren't sure how you got here but something needs to change. Fast.
With a little help, it's possible to get back to the place you came from: where you were on the same page and if you weren't you could work it out. Imagine that you've done the work and you're the couple you want to be: you fight fair, you can both be heard, you're meeting each partner's needs and even enjoy each other's company. You've connected again.
It's important to know that couple's therapy doesn't just mean arguing in front of a stranger. Our main goal is less arguing and more listening. We work in session to tell the hard truths and find real solutions for you to incorporate into your life at home. If you're tired of arguing in circles it may be time to call in outside help. My door is open.
