Is your relationship in trouble? The maintenance of a healthy couple bond over time is one of the most challenging relational tasks we face in human development. Couples therapy can provide you with the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve, and to re-define the “relational space” with in your relationship. Couples therapy, helps couples – married or not – understand and resolve conflict and improve your relationship.
Few recognize the power of relationship as a vehicle for mutual healing-physical, emotional, and spiritual. My approach to working with couples views the relationship as a spiritual practice. When we discover that relationship can be a spiritual practice, combining the explorations of the body, mind and heart into a single practice, we develop an implacable connectedness. Here are typical issues that therapy can help you and your spouse or partner cope with:
- Child rearing conflicts
- Substance abuse
- Sexual difficulties
Your relationship does not have to be in trouble for you to benefit from therapy. Couples therapy can also help build stronger connections while providing you with the tools to gain a better understanding of each other. Pre-marital therapy can also be helpful in bringing awareness to your differences while strengthening the bond before a union is sealed.
