Relationships are challenging! Sure, there are wonderful times of connection, intimacy, and support, but often our deepest wounds and unmet needs surface in relationships. Those woundings can make it difficult to resolve conflict and sustain connection.
As a couple therapist, I believe there are patterns of communication and engagement that cause a breakdown in the relationship. If these are not addressed, over time they can lead to feeling distant from your partner, chronic conflict, building resentment, and thoughts of escape. Part of our work will be identifying your problematic patterns within the relationship so you can have an increased awareness of your relational dynamic and move towards stability within yourself and connection with your partner.
