Foster a Loving Union
Forming and maintaining a loving, thriving romantic relationship is hard! It is also one of the most meaningful things we can do. Anyone who has spent time in a committed relationship can likely recognize the pitfalls--fears that our partners will let us down or leave us, difficulty expressing our frustrations or genuine desires, struggling at times to even know what it is that we are yearning for. Add in the buzz of modern life--full of responsibilities, distractions, temptations, and uncertainty--and it is easy to understand why so many people struggle to attain they intimacy they long for with their partners.
Couples therapy can help partners navigate these many obstacles and feel a deeper connection with one another. Partners learn to recognize the patterns of communication that leave them feeling hurt and disconnected, as well as healthier ways of to express themselves. Partners can also learn to get in touch with deeper emotions that may be at the heart of their struggles with communication. This process can be intense and it takes courage for both partners to explore their struggles and push past hurts and disagreements to find places of healing, but the reward can be transformative and lasting feelings of love and closeness.
