Couples often come in for counseling at a point where they believe their relationship is beyond repair. Communication has broken down, they lack trust, and intimacy no longer exists. Giving yourselves a chance to address this in therapy increases your chance of resolution.
Couples seek therapy for a wide range of reasons. More often than not, couples seeking therapy have trouble communicating effectively. Consequently, there is a break down in one or many parts of the relationship.
Often times I hear that couples have lost time for one another in their busy New York City lives, the trust is gone, they feel betrayed, their sexual lives and desire have diminished, or they fight and argue about the same things and never find resolution. Some issues we may address are: communication, conflict resolution, money and finances, sex and intimacy issues, fighting and anger issues, gender roles, addiction, in-law struggles, religion, values, pregnancy, and many more.
The shift in a relationship can bring about many emotions, including sadness, confusion, and despair. We'll address everything that you're feeling, as well as your concerns, and we'll collaboratively have a plan and set goals to get the relationship back on track.
What I expect of you:
I expect a serious commitment from you in our work together. I expect you to be open to learning, growing, and receiving feedback that will relate directly to your role in the relationship. I expect you to try not to be defensive, to communicate when you are, and to commit to altering the behaviors that are damaging to the relationship. When these conditions are met, we have an excellent chance that the relationship will wind up in a stronger place than it's ever been in before.
