It hurts when relationships reach a point of disconnect and conflict. It is not uncommon for couples to experience conflict at some point in their relationship. Added pressures like work, children, and finances can increase the tension and fights from these can lead to deep emotional wounds. As conflict builds over time, it can feel like the norm, and partners sometimes start changing how they act in the relationships in anticipation of future fights. You might try to work things out on your own but find yourselves falling into the same fights and habits over and over, eventually thinking that this is either the end or that you might not be able to fix it alone.
We work with couples to help both partners to identify the damaging patterns of behavior and find new ways of connecting and communicating on a more emotional and empathetic level.
The couple counselor works to help each partner better express themselves and to listen to their partner. Many couples find themselves in a repeating pattern of conflict that they can't break free from. The fights can come from different triggers, but typically have deeper causes that the counselor can help bring to the surface. Once the core issues are discovered, the couple can work through the real reasons for conflict and create new patterns of relating to each other.
