Relationship Issues

Relationships can be both beautiful and complex. They can provide us with the greatest support and strength, and also be the greatest source of distress. Many relationship challenges occur because of communication styles and patterns of relating to each other that does not foster closeness, warmth and trust. Sometimes relationship challenges are a secondary effect. For example, individuals living with attention deficits, anxiety or addictions issues often also experience relational challenges. Our therapy approach utilizes Gottman-based research to foster effective communication and closeness. We aim to improve communication, clarify your mutual relationship values, increase positive experiences, reduce negative assumptions, and increase curiosity in your partner. We will help you maximize your relationship satisfaction by identifying the underlying problems in your relationship, and helping you change the way you relate to each other’s needs.
