No relationship is formed without unique trials and pains. Couples may be left feeling angry, resentful and uncertain where to go next when negativity and conflict become an overwhelming presence in the relationship. Couples counseling can help you to:
- Stop negative cycles of blaming and withdrawal.
- Listen in a way that promotes empathy and understanding.
- Explore new alternatives to escape locked patterns of fighting.
- Better understand yourself and your partner.
- Find more playfulness and joy in your marriage.
- Reconnect with your original feelings of love.
- Communicate more effectively.
- Transform conflict into an opportunity to build trust and avoid resentment.
- Heal past wounds that continue to harm your current relationship.
- Protect against divorce.
