You got married 5, 10, 15 years ago to the love of your life. You felt connected in ways you couldn’t have ever dreamed of. You couldn’t wait to be with each other. You hoped it would last a lifetime, but it didn’t.
And now, you are barely roommates, let alone partners. You argue about petty, little things. They escalate, they turn into vicious attacks, feelings hurt, egos bruised, you don’t remember what you started fighting about but you are not giving up.
Money is a big stressor and you and your partner can’t come to the table to rationally and calmly talk about solutions. Unspoken expectations about how to make and spend the family money turn into deep resentments.
You’ve considered divorce but neither of you can tolerate having the kids going between two homes.
Or things have been unpleasant for so long and one of you found comfort, joy, and passion in someone else’s arms.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Many marriages do end up in divorce. Many stay intact for the kids but they make miserable home environments. But it really shouldn’t be like this. You shouldn’t have to tough it out. You both deserve a peaceful and warm home. That’s where therapy comes in.
Whether it’s “conscious uncoupling” (thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow for coining the term) or just giving it another try for the 2.0 version, there are better, easier, and more productive ways to have a relationship.
My approach to couples therapy:
- I have a straight forward approach and always look for practical solutions to each couple’s challenges
- A non-judgmental, neuroscientific approach to relationships (how the brain works) with a whole lot of real-world tips and action steps
- I customize my recommendations to ensure they fit with the couple’s daily flow
- Easy access to me by email or text in between sessions
- Check in and follow up emails in between sessions with homework assignments and additional resources
- Free copy of my books, “My Spouse Wants More Sex Than Me” and “My Spouse Is Different Than Me”
- Free access to our content bank, Marriage and Relationship Resource Center
