Sometimes families get stuck. We become entrenched in ways of interacting that stop us from sharing the love we feel for each other. The pressures of daily life can wear us down, and we can benefit from an outside perspective. This is where family counseling comes in.
I work with couples to “zoom out” and take a look at how they interact with each other. There are some important truths about marriages we can use to heal strained relationships:
- We don’t have to agree to coexist and love. Families disagree all the time, but there are ways to do so that preserve relationships instead of harming them.
- We know, from real research, what actually tears families apart. It’s not always what you think. By getting inside our relationships and understanding them in certain ways, we can have hope.
If your family, whatever the size or configuration, is experiencing strain and conflict, we may be able to help you find another way. Contact me to find out about family therapy options.
