Whether aimed at addressing small issues or dealing with potentially relationship-breaking challenges, therapy can help you each feel valued, heard, and connected in new ways that offer the possibility of more openness and a greater capacity for loving.
In the initial stages of couple’s counseling, I work to establish the safe, non-judging and supportive environment that is critical to the development of trust between spouses and partners. I model and teach empathetic communication skills that result in greater understanding between persons.
When couples are enabled to see the act of listening as a way of actually hearing what the other is expressing, rather than merely listening to react or assert one’s case, understanding is increased and validation of each other becomes a powerful way of bonding and increasing a couples capacity for joy in their lives together.
If you would like me to show you how counseling could create lasting, positive change for you and your partner, please contact me today for an appointment.
