There is a common expectation that couples' counseling must focus on improving communication. I have found that problematic patterns of communication can certainly play a role in some dysfunctional relationships and can be corrected at a later point in counseling. Couples' therapy needs to begin by addressing the core factor that sabotages all other attempts to heal the relationship - the lack of respect! Not love, not honesty, not compromise; but to truly experience the other as an independent human being whose world-view and needs are taken into consideration in all one's decisions and actions. Respect, in its deepest and varied expressions, is the key to creating a successful relationship

Having a safe and open environment to address communication challenges, expressing vulnerability, and seeking the support to become accountable in your relationship is what couples counseling can offer. This process can help you and your partner gain greater stability and a deeper understanding of your relationship dynamic. I find that when I work with couple communication is a major issue. Therefore working with a counselor who can help you and your partner feel heard have the potential to open the door to getting certain needs in the relationship met and understood.
