When you are in a relationship, seeing the same person day after day, it can be easy to get into negative routines—a repetitive dance, so to speak.
You might find that the same arguments are coming up over and over again, nothing ever feels resolved. You might feel resentment growing inside. It is easy to fall into a “rut,” to feel “stuck,” at a standstill.
You feel like you’re drifting away from your partner. You long for more intimacy. You might be thinking —what happened to us? What changed? You want things to feel the way they used to.
You might be struggling with forgiveness or trust because of something that happened in the past.
No relationship is perfect. They all take work.
Things can get better. You can create improvement, communicate, change old habits, forgive, grow your partnership. You can move forward together, as one unit. Sometimes it just takes a little support, a little guidance.
That’s where couples therapy comes in. It is about building a secure attachment of trust, reliability, and safety.
Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:
- Addiction/Partner Addiction Support
- Balance (Work/Life/Family)
- Blended Families
- Chronic Illness
- Extended Family
- Mental Illness
What Does Couples Therapy Look Like?
It is normal to be nervous going into a couples therapy session. At Curae, we understand this can be a difficult step to take. Which is why we create a safe, nonjudgemental environment where both partners can feel heard. This is a space where you can communicate your feelings and your needs, and work to understand your partner’s, so that you can both get what you want out of your relationship.
Our licensed therapists work with you to determine solutions to ongoing issues and enhance communication and other important relationship skills. Each session is tailored to your specific relationship with no one-size-fits-all solution.
Common skills we work on in couples therapy include:
- Patience and forgiveness
- Trust and honesty
We know this is hard but couples therapy can be exactly what your relationship needs. Our goal is to help you reconnect and rekindle your love for one another.
