Helping couples overcome emotional distance

Are you having the same arguments with your partner?
Do you feel disconnected from one another other?

Sometimes relationships hurt.

You may be reeling from a betrayal or feel pain from a relationship that’s not what you hoped it would be. Your sex life might be unsatisfying or even non-existent. You may find yourself dreading the expectation of intimacy. Perhaps you are exhausted from fighting. You wonder whether the only option left is ending your relationship.

Many couples hit rough patches in their relationships. Your relationship doesn’t have to be this way. Your relationship can be better.

Whether from a relationship or something else, pain is a warning that something important needs attention.

And when that pain is repetitive, it’s telling you that it’s not going to be enough to simply put things back the way they were.

Whatever it’s source, pain is your signal that it’s time to change something in your life for the better.

That it’s time for more. To heal. To grow. To find a more satisfying life and relationship.

Working with me, you will learn:

  • How to keep your arguments from escalating
  • How to communicate your needs with honesty and clarity
  • How to turn disagreements into an opportunity to grow
  • How to address changes in your intimacy
  • Identify and stop harmful/negative patterns and arguments that are reoccurring
  • Rebuild a sense of trust and safety with each other

Typical issues I help couples with include but are not limited to:

  • Communication Issues
  • Recovering from Infidelity
  • Resentment
  • Trust
  • Anger
  • Disconnection
  • Parenting Conflicts
  • Negotiating Change
  • Pre-marital/Pre-commitment Counseling
  • Negotiating Divorce with Respect and Honor

Financial considerations:

Most marriage therapy is not covered by health insurance. If one person in the couple has a mental health diagnosis insurance benefits maybe be able to be used by billing for that person using their diagnosis. You or your partner may not want to be given a mental health diagnosis. It can go into your medical record and you would be authorizing someone from the insurance company to have access to your records and to know about your progress in treatment. Insurance companies can also limit the number of sessions. However, there are times you might want or need to utilize your insurance for treatment. Feel free to give me a call and we can discuss which option would be better for you.
