Together But Apart
You find that you and your spouse, significant other or partner have been living together but have lost a shared sense of meaning and experience.
One or both of you no longer find the joy or spark you once had. It feels more like you have become roommates than partners in life.
Where has the sense of shared dreams and goals gone?
Do I know You?
You find yourself angry, confused or resentful at the person you know to love. Their reaction to you makes no sense or leaves you confused and alone.
One of the central issues when couples get into increasing conflict is how little they know or understand the other’s background or history.
How well do you understand your partner’s family history, cultural background, religious values? These are all things that contribute to our understanding of our view of the world.
Relationships Need Nourishing
Let Me Help You
If any of these problems or questions ring true for you or your significant other, couples therapy can offer an opportunity to explore your primary relationship.
Regardless of how long you have been in your relationship, couples often find themselves stuck in the way they relate to one another.
As your couple’s therapist, I work to create a safe and judgment-free environment where you can learn skills in de-escalating negative reactions during conflicts and increasing positive affects inside and outside of conflicts.
I work with many couples in the GLBTQ community and understand various non-traditional relationships including primary/secondary intimate relationships, as well as polyamory.
