Couples & Family Therapy
Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away from each other? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner?
Are your teenagers driving you crazy, demanding more independence? Are you struggling with your relationship with your grown children? Are you getting what you want out of your relationship with your parents?
Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us. They have a direct impact on how we view and engage in the relationships that we are involved in.
Couples and/or Family therapy can be used to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. When the whole family grows, each member is better off. All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples and/or family therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and get what you want out of your relationship.
Anyone seeking healthier, closer relationships can benefit from couples and/or family therapy.
