Couples Therapy

Whatever happened to “Til death do us part?”

Maybe you’re wondering whether that still applies if you smother your partner in their sleep (tongue in cheek, of course!).

Teetering on the brink of mayhem, pondering life on a deserted island (or perhaps feeling as if you’re already there), your mind drifts back to reflections of what first drew you to this person.

The way their smile made you feel like the only person in the room – or hearing their laugh across the room and tingling with joy and excitement as you thought, “They’re with me!”

The way you savored their lingering scent on your skin and clothes the day after
those first nights of “getting to know” each other.

The thrill is gone.

And now, you rarely smile when you see each other.

When you talk, it’s a formality – exchanging information – who’s making or picking up dinner, who’s picking up the kids, whose turn is it to pay the phone bill, why the laundry’s been in the dryer for three days, and when do they intend to deal with that?

And the intimacy? You can’t even remember the last time. Either you’re so busy you can’t carve out time for each other, or you’ve never felt so far away.

What happened? You wonder what you did or didn’t do or how you could ever recover what you once had.

But it doesn’t have to be like that.

Before you get a driver’s license, you have to prove you can safely operate a car. Before we start that dream job, you have to apply for the position, give references, and show you can do it.

Yet, when you get married (or start cohabitating!), no one checks references – or asks you to pass a test proving you can fill the position! It’s no wonder why so many of us struggle in relationships.

Watching Friends and Dawson’s Creek and taking the “relationship quizzes” in the back of a Cosmo didn’t exactly prepare us for dealing with the day-in/day-out excitement of scraping our partner’s hair out of the bathroom sink.

Let me help.

I can help you reconnect with your partner – while learning healthy communication patterns in a safe, nonjudgmental space.

Feelings of disconnection and fears of rejection and abandonment will dissipate as increased communication rebuilds what you thought you’d lost forever.

Let’s get together!

Give yourself a break – you’re only human! And human beings are meant to be social creatures.

We inherently need each other, and the secure vulnerability that grows from strong, close connections with our partners is a key part of our mental health.
