Communication and intimacy are at the core of any successful couple. What each of you believes and values brings something unique to the relationship. A couple may be heterosexual, homosexual, or more than two people. Every relationship is unique and deserves hope.
Taking the time to develop a pattern of emotional intimacy and companionship is a foundation for success. Yes, there will always be rough patches that happen. Getting through them successfully is a matter of having the skills and behaviour patterns to support each other. Building a resilient relationship is important, but it may not come easily.
If you are having difficulties in your relationship today, that doesn't mean it's over. Difficulties are a sign that you have things to work on together. We can help you step back and take an objective look at what is happening in your relationship. Then, we work with you to develop the means to address the issues so that you can enjoy the intimacy and joy that you once shared. It takes time, effort and practice to deal with challenging issues like betrayal and building forgiveness.
Although many come for therapy when there are difficulties, therapy can also be of great value in the earlier stages of your relationship. Couples therapy is about helping you and your partner build a stronger relationship together. It is collaborative, optimistic and hopeful.
