What Couples Counseling Can Do For You!
Every relationship has stress. It’s only when the stress begins to shift to higher proportions of your time together that it becomes a problem. John Gottman says that couples need a ratio of 5 positive emotions for every 1 negative emotion to stay together. Sue Johnston says that emotions are music to our partner's ears. Therapy can help us create music of connection rather than disconnection.
I’m here to guide you past any negative emotions you’re experiencing together. Then, you’ll learn better ways to communicate, love each other, and increase your ratio of positive to negative emotions!
Couples Counseling can help you:
- Decrease conflict
- Increase intimacy and closeness
- Proactively address future conflict
- Bring love back into your relationship
- Find your unique relationship strengths to build on
- How to solve inevitable conflicts faster and with less stress
- Understand your partner on a deeper level (including their love style)
And more. Lots more.
