How Couples Counseling Works
First, we will assess your relationship and work with you to establish meaningful goals. Based on what is learned in those initial sessions, we will create a treatment plan for getting your relationship to a healthier place.
As time goes on, we may modify that plan to ensure that you and your partner are reaching your goals and strengthening your relationship.
The Sex And Anger Connection
Most couples enter couples counseling with the assumption that they need to eliminate conflict from their relationship. The belief is that fighting of any kind is somehow a bellwether of incompatibility.
Commonly, couples who avoid conflict tell their couples therapist, “We don’t fight at all, so I don’t understand why this isn’t working.”
Again, there is a common misconception that the presence of conflict is somehow the indicator of a relationship heading south. This idea could not be further from the truth.
