It is not uncommon for couples to find themselves at a crossroad in their relationship / marriage, seemingly unable to move forward or backward. Many couples desire to restore the beauty their relationship once had, or to move forward and create something new, more rewarding. Do you find that you and your partner are in this place? Are you unable to see around the obstacles in your relationship path? It is possible to rebuild your relationship / marriage to gain new understanding, new vibrancy and a renewed commitment to a future together.
Communication is often a paramount issue in relationship conflict. Through therapy couples learn new and often vastly more effective ways to communicate. Moreover, effective communication can quickly put a relationship on a pathway to healing. It can open the door to deeper issues and give couples the courage to “go there.”
Sometimes there are very painful mistakes that have occurred during the course of a relationship. Infidelity, physical or emotional abuse, intense jealousy, anger/rage, lack of commitment, or a controlling or unresponsive spouse/partner are all possible examples of this. Counseling can help. When it seems hopeless and impossible to resolve these issues it is time to seek help. Often therapists are able to see through the hurt and help couples find the pathway to a new and more satisfying relationship.
