Is there a part of you that is feeling disconnected from your partner?
Sometimes in relationships it might feel safer to just walk away or distance yourself from your partner, in hopes the problem will just go away. Oftentimes what might happen is you choose to disconnect, rather than connect. This tends to make relationships feel unbearable and often result in you developing a lack of communication. Why is it that you choose to argue and fight, rather than communicate with one another? Why not find an alternative way to connect that solicits support from your partner? Good news, couples counseling/marriage counseling can help.
Has communication seemed to vanish as if it was never even there?
Does it seem like you woke up one morning next to a stranger? You might have no idea who that person is, let alone care to even talk with them? A bulk of my work with couples and marriage counseling consists of listening intently to begin to understand each individual’s journey with communication, where did each partner lose communication, and where does the couple want communication.
Stopping the negative spiral that created the lack of communication is the healing work needed to help you thrive in a relationship. Furthermore, opening awareness into the healing language begins with you understanding present moment needs and wants. The powerful work with couples counseling or marriage counseling, transforms and encourages a couple to find the courage to explore the deeper meaning through communication in their relationship.
If you could imagine your perfect relationship, what would it look like?
Would you have the ability to talk to your partner without being defensive? Would you be able to trust your partner when they are not around? Are you be able to trust yourself while you are away? Do you feel safe in the relationship to speak about some of the deeper wounding you are currently experiencing? What if no one was to blame As these dynamics are explored through couples and/or marriage counseling, you begin to understand there is more to a relationship than previously thought.
Partners who create safety and meaning in a relationship also provide freedom to be accepted by each other. Everyone has shortcomings, but these can be the quirks that fuel your passion. This is experienced as a gentle move from blaming and arguing and yelling and lying and cheating to embracing and meaningmaking and accepting and being vulnerable.
Move closer, not further away.
Actively engaging in couples counseling or marriage counseling can help couples who have lost the ability to connect. The loss of connection usually translates to a loss of desire to be intimate. Can you imagine what your relationship would feel like if you move toward your partner, rather than away? Usually moving away looks like:
– purposeful distancing
– the inability to connect
– lack of trust
– a lack of physical connection
How I can help you connect through couples counseling or marriage counseling.
I received a large portion of my training through the Seattle Relationship Clinic, as well as understanding my own struggles with maintaining a marriage and a family. Communication was more than likely discouraged in your home. If this is the case, you can benefit from seeking external support to understand why your relationship seems to strike you to your very core. With my support through couples counseling/marriage counseling, you both can stop running in circles and learn how to embrace the love, desire, and connection you so long for.
Couples and marriage counseling opens awareness to explore what is currently manifesting in the relationship. Couples then become free to explore what is stopping them from moving forward in life or the relationship. When this happens, feelings and emotions appear as welcoming for the couple, rather than threatening . With me as a guide and mediator, a partner is allowed to speak his or her truth while in session. Comparatively, these new truths emerge free from interruptions and interpretations from the other. Together we’ll increase awareness and the use of one’s own voice as a healing language.
It is my honor and privilege to support couples and marriage counseling, which sharpens deeper emotions to be spoken and heard from each partner. In hearing the other’s deeper wounding, one’s partner chooses to embrace the other in a more emotionally mature and intentional way. What is stopping you from reaching out and taking the next step?
