WHAT DO YOU WANT IN YOUR LOVE LIFE?

Respect, trust, and understanding

Couples therapy can help your relationship thrive.

You can have the love you want.

Learning to understand and accept your differences

can help you and your partner grow together. 

Are you struggling with 

  • Communication challenges

  • Blame or criticism

  • Feeling taken for granted

  • Distance or disconnection

  • Past hurts that keep resurfacing

Identifying patterns that fuel the cycle of fighting

can help you change it.

Sometimes we are hurt in relationship, and we can heal in relationships too.

Conflict sheds light on what needs attention and can actually deepen your connection.

Exploring your patterns with family or prior partners can reveal your expectations about love or relationships.

Sometimes we need practice

connecting with kindness and curiosity.

Underlying every complaint is a longing for love or happiness.

Silence or defensiveness stems from a need for acceptance or safety.

Speaking and listening with your heart will deepen empathy and understanding.

Couples therapy can help you

create more of what you’re wanting.
