We've all heard that relationships are hard and that they take work, but most of us don't know exactly what work to be doing. And how would we? We weren’t given a manual on how to effectively navigate relationships. We didn't take classes on this! You've probably been working hard on yours for a while now. Unfortunately your best efforts may not be getting you where you want to be.
Maybe long hours at your job are building up resentments at home. Maybe you and your partner aren’t where you had hoped to be at this point in your life, and you feel as though your partner blames you for this.
There is good news.
You don’t have to go this alone. I am here to help and give you the tools you need for a successful, fulfilling relationship. People don’t operate according to a predetermined code, but an experienced and effective counselor can teach you how to find a deeper relationship built on trust, communication, and respect.
It’s Never Too Soon
Unfortunately, many people come to the conclusion that couples counseling is the right decision about six years later than they needed the help (43 years of relationship research shows this). What this means for you is that it’s never too early to consider counseling. If you are looking at this site, things are probably a challenge in your relationship, and the reality is that without knowledgeable help things are likely to get worse. Head off future problems by calling my Seattle counseling practice today so you can receive the guidance you need.
