Exhausted from having the same arguments over and over?

Realizing that you don’t know how to communicate?

Beneath all fights are tender, vulnerable feelings. Our therapists will help you learn to communicate about these underlying feelings that are generating the fights and miscommunication.

Once we are able to identify and talk about what is really driving the fights, we are on the road to greater intimacy and connection. And when that happens, couples quickly move to cooperation and agreement.

We start with teaching you how to communicate. That usually doesn’t take long. Once you have practiced that skill then you are ready to approach the next stage of turning towards each other with the most difficult issues in your relationship. 

Our job is to teach you how to feel closer after a challenging conversation rather than farther away.

This work will also help you build better relationships at work, and with friends and family.

To learn more call us, email, or set up an appointment using our online scheduler.
