Why couples therapy? Feelings of hopelessness, exasperation, and isolation are very common with clients who come to my office. Will my partner ever change? Is something I hear a lot from clients. Therapy is not an overnight cure, and with time and persistence relationships can improve. When people set out to grow a garden they don’t expect flowers the next day. Like a garden, relationships need tending and sometimes invasive weeds need to be extracted with a little extra help.
If you come in as part of a couple, I will get to know you both together and individually. I will ask about your family history to understand where you are coming from and look at the interactions between you and your significant other. There are a wide range of issues that couples bring to therapy, so the sooner you do it the sooner you will feel more connected. I look forward to meeting you both.
