Hope for Your Relationship

A couples therapist is an advocate for the well being of the relationship. 

This includes helping you explore relationship expectations, dreams, and desires.  

What are your hopes and dreams for your relationship?

Do you worry that ongoing conflict means that your relationship is fatally flawed?

What it could mean..

is that you need help with the care and healing of your relationship, so that you have best chance of creating the relationship and the life you want.

Have you been trying to make things better on your own?

Sometimes couples worry that getting help means..

that things are “really bad.” So instead of looking for help they try to figure out how to make things better on their own.  Sometimes that works.  Sometimes things get better.  But sometimes relationships get stuck and need outside help.

Do you think you should be able solve your relationship problems on your own?

Sometimes one or both partners resist asking for relationship help because..

they think they “should” be able to “fix it” themselves.  As any vehicle owner or homeowner knows, “doing it yourself” has its limits.  And occasionally it causes damage.

You may not always know just how to care for your relationship.  That’s OK.  Help is available.

Can Things Really Change?

If you are worried that it is too late to make things better...

If you question whether counseling has anything to offer you...

If you are worried that working on issues could make things worse...

If you are afraid to invest hope and risk being disappointed in the outcome...

Many people with these same fears and concerns successfully create change in their relationships.  Even when they are afraid to hope for it, they are able to create change and make good things happen in their relationships and their lives.  Change really does happen.

How would things be for you if you could feel more hopeful about your relationship?

How would it be to feel hopeful, empowered, and able to handle everyday conflict

without blowups or tears, without anger or blame?
