Relationships with others are the most important resources in our lives, but many couples get to a place in their relationships where they become stuck in an unfortunate cycle of miscommunication and fighting. They feel like they are on opposite sides of the universe and don’t realize that they both want nothing more than to be connected again. Often couples engage in problematic interactive patterns in a repetitive yet unsuccessful attempt to reconnect and recapture their original bond.
Couples therapy can help untangle these negative cyclical patterns between partners. A safe therapeutic environment helps identify the problematic interactions and explore the feelings that lie underneath. Ultimately, couples can understand each other’s fears and longings and start relating to one another again, while forging the strong bonds of trust and love that are the basis of a healthy relationship.
