The below text are common scenarios in therapy. Your specific needs are most likely different. Please call with your unique circumstance(s) and let’s get started tomorrow.
THE DRAMA AT HOME LOOKS NOTHING LIKE WHAT I PRESENT TO OTHERS.
Couples seek therapy for many reasons, one is, they FIGHT. Some FIGHT DAILY. Some fight over an affair that the other can’t get over.
When a couple seeks couples counseling a few years after the birth of children one common situation is, the wife feels like the husband has lost interest. Not only in the marriage, but around the house as well. What’s different? The children. The husband focuses on work more, and the wife puts all her energy into the children. Causing a disconnect in the marriage.
Before children, the free time in your relationship was non restricted, spontaneous, and different; plain and simple. Learning to navigate life with children often takes guidance from a therapist to view dynamics from a different lens.
COMPLACENTCY SETS IN.
Your partner was so involved with you prior to the relationship evolving, and now you two never have date night. The fights that lead to great make up sex seem to be all fight and no makeup. Leading to anger, resentment, and feeling alone. Ones shows interest in their hobbies, and the other is too invested in making the relationship work.
Sometimes a partner charms the other, hangs on your every word, and shows their best self in the early stages of relationships, (I think we all do to some extent). Once the relationship turns long term; the relationship struggles due to lack of communication and balance.
How Men Think……
If a couple has intercourse after a fight, men often think the whole situation might be over. Women, not so fast. They often build resentment. I will educate both of you how to be direct with your needs, feelings, and become vulnerable. Relationships take awareness, not work.
WOMEN, I WILL TEACH YOU HOW MEN THINK…
You’re sick and tired of the chaos in your mind and in your relationship… Don’t waste one more day feeling stuck. Both of you want and deserve to be happy, feel valued, loved and express your differences in a way that brings fulfillment for all.
Regardless of your sexual orientation, having children, just married, or thinking of moving in together. I can show you how to have healthy fights, find common ground, and restore the joy and happiness you two shared in the beginning.
When you exit couples counseling…. When you two have an issue, both of you will know what’s worth fighting for and when to let it go. You will reexplore why you fell in love in the first place. Have great date nights and be fully present in your life together. Instead of JUST EXIST….
Your relationship will bring you two happiness and joy.
You’ll fight less and focus on the good your partner offers you. When a difficult conversation arises, AND YOU WILL HAVE THEM, both of you will communicate in a effective manner that ends with compromise and results.
Take your marriage/relationship back by setting your first appointment with me. All you’ll lose is that feeling of anger and resentment. That’s a lot to get rid of..!
These are only a few reasons couples seek therapy from a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Rasing children with two different values systems, that strong willed child, communication, lack of trust, feeling like roommates, one doing all the heavy lifting, and the other not caring are just the few of many reasons couples to seek therapy.
