Wanting to improve relationships is a common reason that people seek counseling. Sometimes you want better communication or a deeper intimacy with your partner.
When your partner can’t or won’t see a couples counselor, you can still benefit from counseling. Often when you can change the way you respond and think about your relationship, your relationship can improve.
Counseling can give you the tools you need to communicate more effectively and find ways to better resolve conflicts. Sometimes improving your outer relationships often begins with improving your relationship to yourself.
Counseling can help you identify the patterns in your relationship that are unhelpful, and support you in choosing new patterns of relating.
