Couples Counseling

As young children often times we are presented powerful media images that craft our ideas of the fairy tale relationship… riding away in the sunset together…. Leaving us to dream about and imagine how wonderful and perfect our relationship will be. As we grow the message gets more complicated, we hear that marriage is hard work, we are told how we “should” be treated in a relationship, we are told what we should accept and what we should not accept. And all these very individual and personal ideas are given to us from very different and possibly conflicting sources, family of origin and extended family and friends, the media, religious influences to name a few. It is no wonder that creating a successful relationship with your partner is hard work!

Creating a rewarding, vibrant relationship can be done, but not many of us have been shown how. Most of us are doing the best we can with the myriad of images and opinions that we have been shown. When we are in a relationship and the brilliance begins to fade and the problems and the hurts appear often times we are unprepared to cope.   Often times as couples we get stuck in a cycle that neither one wants, it just seems impossible to break out and move on with a more mutually rewarding relationship.

With help, you can gain a deeper understanding of your unique relationship, where difficulties arise, and you will gain insight into how to move past what is keeping you stuck in an unwanted dynamic. Just as no two people are exactly alike, a successful relationship will not look the same for any two people. Our approach to relationships is to talk with you as individuals in order to appreciate each of your individual perspectives and then move on to helping you understand each other and the dynamics the are creating the issues in your relationship. We will work in a collaborative manner that will draw on both of your strengths and ideas of a successful relationship.

If you would like to get started don’t hesitate to give us a call.
