Relationship Therapy

Couples usually seek therapy for two reasons--half of the people who come in for therapy want to improve their relationship and for the other half, one partner is looking for an exit strategy.  People stop listening to each other and come in too late after someone has given up and emotionally disconnected.  Therapy may not keep the relationship from disrupting, but may help people gain some clarity.  Even if you are not sure where your relationship is headed, therapy can create a path toward clarification.  When substance dependence, domestic violence or an on-going affair is present, relationship therapy will not be successful without first addressing the main problem.

Learning good communication skills and practicing them while staying emotionally contained and connected is the key to a successful relationship.  Even if you find yourself in a difficult situation, we can help you individualize a plan that meets your needs.
