  • I just can’t figure out why we keep fighting… we used to get along so well.
  • My partner and I are committed to each other, but we don’t really know where our relationship is heading anymore.
  • When it’s good it’s good. But when it’s bad… it’s really bad!
  • I don’t really know when it changed, but we’re more like roommates or best friends now.
  • We’re not sure if we should stay together or not, and we need help figuring that out.

Couples can find themselves stuck in negative or unhealthy patterns that they have trouble moving though – it could be about communication, or you may have experienced a recent injury to your emotional bond or fear that the trust in your partner has been broken. Sometimes you and your partner might look like you have it all together, yet you both can feel isolated and unsure how to find the right kind of help.

Whether you’re hoping to build a foundation for a healthy relationship, revitalize a listless one or rescue one that has gone awry, couples therapy can be one of the most important investments you’ll ever make.

Many couples who come to see us care about each other deeply, but get stuck in negative communication cycles that leave them feeling angry, alone and disconnected.

Getting help to improve your communication and enhance your emotional connection can help bring a struggling relationship back to life.
