Committed relationships aren't always easy. Small hurts accumulate, we withdraw or withhold, we nitpick and argue, and sometimes we break faith with ourselves and each other. And all the while what we really want is a relationship that's open, authentic and life-giving. Committed relationships hold out the possibility for us to know ourselves, to learn intimacy, to practice forgiveness, to be more authentic and more alive than anywhere else in our lives. That's the promise that loving relationships hold but sometimes we need help to get there.
Couples therapy works to help you see each other and yourself with fresh eyes, break patterns of blame and counter-blame, and risk new ways to be together. It can provide honest and caring support to make space in your relationship for openness, self-expression, and a richer deeper love for yourself and each other.
