Couples Therapy in New Milford, CT
Are You Having Trouble Communicating With Your Partner?
Have you and your partner been having trouble communicating lately? Maybe your conversations have been escalating into arguments, and you are unable to compromise or agree on much of anything these days. From household duties to finances, to parenting, you don’t seem to be on the same page anymore – in fact, maybe you both seem to be actively moving in different directions. You may have thought to yourself, “If only my partner and I could just communicate better, our life together – our family – would be so much healthier.”
Or maybe you and your partner haven’t gotten married, moved in together, or had children – but the way things have been going, you aren’t sure if any of the above is such a good idea.
Perhaps nothing “big” happened – such as an affair or some other betrayal of trust – to drive you two apart. Instead, your frustrations may be in the little things you can’t seem to agree on: how many kids to have, how much money to spend on the wedding, parenting styles, things that need to be done around the house. You may be feeling so overwhelmed by the thought of your relationship falling apart, and you can’t think about anything else – causing other relationships and responsibilities to suffer.
Do you wish you could stop fighting with your partner, and live in harmony once again?
Communication Issues Are Common For Many Couples
Relationship Repair is Possible with Counseling
You May Have Some Concerns About Couples Therapy.
I’m afraid of being judged.
Our job as counselors is not to judge you, but rather seek to understand where you both are coming from in your relationship. We provide an open-minded atmosphere and safe environment for people to express themselves freely. Our goal is to show you both how to communicate better, not to change who you are as people, criticize your choices, or alter your personalities in any way. Honesty unlocks the key to finding solutions.
If we need a couples counselor, does that mean we’re heading for divorce?
Not at all. On the contrary, counseling is an investment you make to preserve and improve your relationship. Couples therapy is a way to strengthen your relationship. Many of our clients have reported that their relationships and marriages are stronger than ever after several therapy sessions.
I don’t want to share my private business with a stranger.
Creating therapeutic relationships with our clients is the core of the work that we do as couples’ counselors. Sometimes, people find it easier to share their feelings with someone they don’t know. But a third party listener can alleviate the worry of thinking that family and friends will see you differently if you shared the details of your relationship with them.
