Intimate relationships provide an excellent opportunity for personal and relational growth. Often when two people do life together, they are confronted with communication patterns, habits, or behavior that cause relationship tension.
Many couples, overwhelmed by this tension, start to imagine a future of committed misery, and turn to affairs, addiction, or divorce to manage their disappointment in the relationship. There is another way.
In couples counseling, get curious about what is going on beneath the surface of your words and behavior. Learn to tell your partner what you experience and desire in a way they can hear. By becoming emotionally attuned, you can solve problems as a team. Together you can consciously choose the change you want, enjoy a new level of intimacy, and create a life with shared purpose.
