“What makes a happy marriage? It is a question which all men and women ask one another… The answer is to be found, I think, in the natural discovery, by two who marry, of the deepest need of the other’s personality and the satisfaction of that need”. ~ Pearl Buck
Couples Counseling NYC
Couples may be arguing, bickering, and constantly triggering each other, or they may be disconnected, feeling alone, and barely speaking. The common thread in couples seeking counseling is that their relationship is no longer a safe, loving, and enjoyable space.
We help couples restore the strength and vitality their relationship once had, and show them how to create a conscious partnership focused on valuing one other’s experience. We deepen the emotional connection, restore intimacy, and show couples how to become responsive to their partners’ needs and wants.
When Should We Enter Couple Counseling?
Often times, couples wait too long before seeking help. Anger and resentment could be building for years, destroying connection, safety, and love, which needs to be the foundation for the relationship. As soon as couples, married and unmarried, find themselves in patterns that they can’t break, therapy can be extremely helpful.
Common Relationship Struggles Include:
Lack of intimacy, connection, satisfaction and enjoyment with your partner
- Constant bickering and fighting, excessive anger and loss of temper
- Infidelity, insecurity, trust, and betrayal
- Differing ideas of roles, rules, and expectations
- Difficulty transitioning to a parenting relationship
- Inherent differences in lifestyle decisions (having children, religion, career)
- Extended family conflicts
- Feeling misunderstood, problems with communication
- Having the same arguments over and over again
