Oftentimes couples come to counseling because they are struggling to feel seen and heard by their partner. This can lead to each person coming to the table ready to win-- unable to truly hear each other. Many of the couples I work with say that they keep having the same argument over and over again and can't seem to find a solution. It is also common that individuals in a partnership begin to feel that they have sacrificed too much of their authentic selves for the relationship, leading to resentment.
As your therapist, the role is to help you truly see each other in your wholeness and in your imperfections and to help you to understand how your attachment histories impact your current relationship.
Your marital status is not important when pursuing couples counseling and I work with both heterosexual and LGBTQ couples.
