Couple Therapy
Often times we find ourselves in a relationship that is either not meeting our needs or in some way not working.  In couple counseling, you can work on your belief systems about relationships, communication styles, expectations and patterns of interaction  that are not productive.  Relationships need to be "designed" and discussed in order to meet both partners needs.  Relationships are also constantly changing and when we treat them as stagnant, one or both partners may feel less engaged or not be getting their needs met.

Depending on our own histories growing up, we may not have a  healthy model of what a relationship looks like or how to get our needs met in the world.  In these situations, couples are left struggling to figure out how to get there needs met and often times will continue to repeat patterns of behavior despite not being successful. This repetitive behavior underminds the intial good feelings of the relationship, leaving it in jeopardy.

Although I do believe relationships take effort and conscious thought, relationships should not feel like "work."  Through couple counseling, most relationships have the potential to become more fulfilling and rewarding.
