“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” Anais Nin
Does it seem like everything you try to communicate gets heard wrong by your partner? Do you wonder why you even try talking at all? What happened to that “tool kit” everyone talks about when it comes to communication? Isn’t it really simple. I talk, you listen.
It’s not simple and unfortunately there is no easy fix tool kit.
But there are behavioral and relational changes that you can make to improve communication in your relationship.
“Well”, you ask, “if there are simple changes can’t I just read a book and things will get better? Why do we have to come talk to someone about why we can’t talk”?
I don’t just give you a one size fits all script for communicating. I work with you and your partner to identify the hiccups that are in the way of effective and healthy communication.
I can help you to figure out what you can change and also what you can build on in your partnership to bring out the best in each other.
There is help- and yes, therapy is the fastest, most effective tool in helping couples to communicate in a way that will build a healthy and satisfying relationship.
