It's no surprise that successful relationships take work. Let one of our specialists assist you and your partner in learning how to understand and communicate with each other in ways that bring out the best in your relationship and help you sustain it for the rest of your lives.
Humans are wired for intimacy. Our most important relationship need is a sense of connection with another, a sense of security that when we need our partner, he or she will be there for us, and an understanding that we are not alone in the world. Sometimes, couples may reach out for support from a counselor when one or both partners is/are unable to get their core needs for connection, attachment, and intimacy met in their partnership. Couples sessions can help partners learn to heal from disconnection and isolation, move toward reconnecting in a way that supports meaningful communication, mutual understanding and appreciation, and to increase emotional, mental, and physical intimacy.
