Couples counseling gives partners the opportunity to step outside of their habitual ways of relating to one another and learn to see one another with fresh eyes. By slowing down and listening deeply, couples can learn to better read their partner moment-to-moment, and understand their "owner's manual". Doing this enables communication to become less combative and more supportive, and for each partner to meet the other's needs more consistently. From this basis, passion and intimacy is increased and couples find that the relationship they've always wanted with their partner is attainable. If you and your partner are struggling with trust issues, betrayal, fighting, or feelings of distance, couples counseling can help.
