Distressed couples are hurt, angry, frustrated and feeling hopeless. Each person often becomes defensive, critical, contemptuous or stonewalling – all leading back to becoming a distressed couple.
Couple counseling is a way to break this unhealthy vicious cycle. As a therapist and mediator, I help couples identify their unmet needs, the source of their negative emotions, as well as their strengths and areas where changes can bring about greater closeness. It is an interactive process that helps couples learn how to listen better, communicate openly and directly, and share needs and feelings in a nonjudgemental setting.
All couples have periods of feeling distant from each other. However, when this distance leads to a loss of emotional and physical connectedness, couple counseling can be the first step towards change and reconnection.
