Our culture is full of stories – fairy tales – that end in “Happily Ever After” Unfortunately, those are just that, fairy tales, and life seldom turns out how we dreamed it would.
Sometimes, the relationship becomes focused on this disappointment – often due to a breakdown in communication or the behaviors of one or both partners. But there is hope!
Couples counseling provides a safe space where the couple can learn to have the relationship they want to have. Through counseling, couples can learn how previous relationships impact their current relationship, how to effectively communicate with each other, and how express their needs and desires, all while addressing the underlying concerns leading to the reasons for seeking counseling.
Like with couples counseling, sometimes there is ongoing concern or conflict between parents and their child. This can be very frustrating for both the parents and the child. This can be made worse when it seems like the frustrations are intentionally caused.
Family counseling provides a safe space for the family to discuss concerning behavior and find productive ways to move forward.
