Being in a relationship is one of the most amazing gifts we can give ourselves.
A gift that you sometimes wish you could return or exchange. You may have even gone back to the store to see if that’s possible.
Then you realize you love your gift. You were just having a moment.
Look, relating to a partner is amazing when it’s great and things are going well. It can be one of the toughest experiences when that greatness gets shaken.
Life happens. Jobs end. Parents get involved. Friends have their opinions. Children come into the picture.
Will you ever get back to the way it was?
the bottom line
YOU LOVE YOUR PARTNER
Perhaps you and your partner have been dating for a little while. It’s been going well, like really well. You like this person and would like the relationship to continue. You may think your partner would be perfect if he or she changed just a few things. You are really seeking more insight to your partner and what makes them the way they are but it comes off as criticism. The first few months seem like a distant memory and now you might be questioning what the future of this relationship is.
This might be a relationship you have been in for years and have just lost the spark. You didn’t want to ‘rock the boat’ before you got married and now the seas are getting choppy. You love your partner, but the spark isn’t the same and you miss how it was in the beginning, before you really got to know each other. You wish you had these tough conversations before you committed to each other and you feel like it’s too late. It’s not.

WITH COUPLES THERAPY
Couples therapy can transform your relationship for the better. A true passion of mine as a therapist is helping individuals develop and maintain healthy romantic relationships. It can be really hard, especially with social media, to navigate dating and being in a relationship. I would love to help you learn to open your heart to being loved again or how to grow the love you have.
