If you and your partner are seeking couples therapy, it’s likely there’s good reason, whether that be difficulty communicating, parenting conflicts, financial problems, or an infidelity/betrayal. When everyone’s committed to doing the work, being open about the ways the relationship has been hurtful (the hurt that’s been received and the hurt that’s been given), there’s room for tremendous growth. I work collaboratively with couples to see that the relationship gets the help it needs to grow –learning how to communicate vulnerably, how to disagree productively (i.e. "fight fair"), how to get needs met and address difficult issues. In actively engaging in this hard work, I have witnessed couples overcome unimaginable difficulties and experience healing and restoration; more intimacy, more freedom, better sex, a better partnership as parents.
