It is so easy in a relationship to feel stuck. Primary relationships are an important part of a fulfilling life. The love and support of another person can feel so good but it can also consume our time and energy when it isn't working so well. the emotions that get stirred up with relationship difficulties often feel over whelming and get in the way of communicating. Learning to manager the emotions so you can really listen to the other person is keep. Much of my focus in couples counseling is to get each person to look at what kind of partner they want to be and how they can take steps toward acting on these values.

At Awakenings Center - Helping Couples with Love and Sex we specialize in couples counseling or marriage counseling. One partner often feels the need for more closeness either emotionally through talking, time together and/or sexually. The other partner gravitates toward work, productivity, space and solitary hobbies. One feels starved and the other feels criticized. The first fears abandonment, the latter fears control. The genders stereotypically flipflop over sex with the man being the emotional distancer but sexual pursuer and the woman being the emotional pursuer but having low desire. We can help you find a comfortable middle ground where your needs are met in abundance!
