"We just don't communicate" is what I frequently hear from couples. Is there something more? Usually, yes. What can really be happening? Anger, resentment, feeling alone in a relationship,hurt feelings, finances, infidelity, addiction, overwhelmed with child raising, stress, phew. All of these issues and others can take a toll on couples. Sometimes we all need help to sort through problems. Therapy can help. Giving ourselves permission to receive help, is half the battle. To accept therapy means you value your relationship enough to try. Therapy does not have to be long term and we can work together to decide on your goals.

Behavioral Marital Therapy is used focusing on individual responsibility for his/her actions and level of satisfaction in the relationship.Couples identify desired changes in behavior and then talking about new actions. Couples make agreements or contracts and learned communication and problem solving. Self-regulation on the part of both partners to achieve mutual satisfaction in the relationship was embraced as a key component to what was increasingly called "couples counseling" rather than "marital counseling".

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

It has been my experience with couples that the main things, but not limited to, they fight about are Communication, Money, Children/Discipline, or Lack of appreciation. These are hot topics that affect many couples. Sometimes it's just tweaking what you already do to create change. It's also easy to let children distract you from the relationship. What will happen when they move out and you are left looking at each other, realizing you just don't know that other person anymore? I'm here to help you work on that. If that has happened, what does it take to reinvent the relationship? Is divorce the answer? And if it is, how can we work on that process?
