“You never listen to me!”
“You never say anything worth listening to!”
Does this sound like a familiar argument between you and your partner? Studies show that nine out of ten couples rate their relationships as anywhere from dissatisfactory to miserable.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Making a relationship work is a skill, and skills need to be learned. Counseling, both individually and as a couple, can teach the communication skills that are necessary for a healthy and satisfying partnership. Another relationship pitfall is when past negative behaviors creep into the present, causing you to repeatedly drag yourself through emotional barbed wire by choosing a partner that is simply not right for you. Everyone deserves to be in a relationship that adds joy to his or her life, and leads you down the road of contentment.
We can work it out by talking it out, and together we can uncover exactly what needs to be listened to, what needs to be said, and what needs to be done.
