RELATIONSHIPS WITH OUR PARTNERS

No wonder it hurts so much when it is threatened with conflict. Partners often respond differently to conflict. One may become closed off or withdrawn while the other anxiously attempts to talk the problem out.

These responses often become a pattern used to reduce tension and stabilize the relationship, however, it rarely works and tends to fuel conflict causing the relationship to become stuck. When your relationship becomes stuck, you may have a hard time feeling close and enjoying your time with each other. Many couples find themselves repeating the same arguments, but never coming to an understanding. Sometimes disagreements spiral out of control and create new areas of conflict or wounds. Feeling misunderstood, judged, criticized, unloved or cared for can cause the relationship to lose it’s spark and cause partners to become emotionally withdrawn from one another.

COMMON STRUGGLES

 

  1.      * Small issue turns to a major argument

  1.      * Feel ignored, unheard and frustrated

  1.      * Feel judged, hurt or rejected

  1.      * Arguments do not lead to solutions

  1.      * Missing closeness and intimacy

  1.      * Feel misunderstood and alone

HOW COUPLES COUNSELING CAN HELP

If this sounds familiar, you are not alone and there is good reason to hope. With couples counseling, commitment and hard work, you and your partner can get back on track and rebuild a loving, close relationship. Many couples come into therapy because of problems with communication, not feeling heard or understood by one another. What we know is that couples tend to develop a pattern of communication they use to discuss upsetting issues. We will work to figure out the what the pattern is and dig deeper to understand the affect it has on each one of you. You will learn to identify the pattern that is intensifying the conflict and be able to change it when it occurs. You will learn how to express your feelings and needs without causing the other to become reactive or withdrawn. The skills you develop will help you feel more secure and safe when discussing conflicts. Together, you will identify what each other needs to feel important, loved and cared for so that you can have a strong, trusting connection that will naturally bring back the closeness you desire.

WHAT IF MY PARTNER WILL NOT COME TO OUR COUPLES COUNSELING SESSION?

Often times, one partner will want to get help for the relationship by going into counseling while the other may say they “are not interested in going” or “don’t believe in therapy”. This can be very discouraging if you are the partner who wants help. You may find it beneficial to go to individual therapy as working on yourself can drastically improve the relationship for both of you. Changes you make within yourself can go a long way to improving things between you and may encourage your partner to join you in.

Family therapy is different than other therapies in that the entire family is treated as the “client”. The basic understanding is that what affects one member affects all members of the family.

Often times, the family member who is problematic when treated in individual therapy only to recover and another member of the family become symptomatic. In order to resolve family issues the cooperation of everyone in the family is crucial to strengthening bonds and resolving conflicts. During family therapy sessions, members identify how conflicts affect one another individually and the family as a whole. The family develops improved skills for managing and working through conflicts..

How Therapy for Teens Can Help

Therapy for adolescents may take the form of individual, group or family. The goal is to help the teen learn to cope with feelings and learn to solve problems more effectively. A nurturing therapist will use validation and acceptance to help the adolescent feel safe to explore their inter-world and process the emotional experiences they are having.

Parents are involved in the therapy to work through family conflicts and concerns about the teen’s behavior at school and home. The adolescent therapist will help the teen identify more effective social skills, better coping skills for anxiety, ADD/ADHD and depression, skills for managing stress, and how to create realistic expectations for themselves. Adolescent therapy can help teens process emotional issues and struggles they are facing and develop effective ways to manage their problems.
