My couples counseling sees the patient as the relationship. The partners and I will identify when the stuck feeling comes. Usually this results from fear of painful relating patterns. We talk about expressing true feelings, not the mask of imagined expectation. In Couples Counseling we practice talking from the heart. If someone likes knowing more about what blocks their ability to love and be loved, usually bc inner pain is very deep, we work similarly, for the same goal, to love and be loved
Our therapy work is defined by discovering the patterns of your emotional life which may interfere with the goals for your relationship or relationship which you aspire to have in your life.
