Having the same arguments over and over again?
Feeling more like roommates than lovers?

“Our marriage of 13 years was deteriorating. We were continuously fighting and angry at each other. We weren’t talking – we were screaming. From best friends we were turning into enemies. We started discussing a separation but thought we should give it one more shot.
Our therapist had exceptional sensitivity and ability to understand the real feelings and intentions that we weren’t expressing correctly. He helped us understand the internal dynamics of our relationship and pin-point areas where we were miscommunicating and misunderstanding each other. He helped us identify negative relationship cycles and break them.
It took some work, but we are in a much better place today. We know how to control arguments and prevent them from escalating out of control. We learned to communicate in a positive, supportive way which makes us both feel better. We actually enjoy each other’s company again!
Most importantly, we have the tools to maintain, and continue growing, a healthy and positive relationship!”

“My boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years. We love each other very much, but there were issues that we couldn’t seem to resolve on our own because we didn’t have unbiased views or the tools to moderate arguments/disputes. We realized we needed professional help to get through some difficult issues that we were going through.
We never intended to fight or hurt each other. But when we fought, our counselor provided a safe place for us to voice our feelings and listen to each other. He helped us explore the root cause of our arguments. During the process not only have I learned so much about my partner, I’ve learned a lot about myself and the origins to why I react to different situations. We found new appreciation for each other, learned to communicate better and most important of all how to handle an argument…”
