Relationships are hard. If you and your partner spend more time arguing or ignoring each you are not alone. Our closest relationships have a certain effect on us: they can foster the greatest "highs," and can trigger the greatest "lows."
Without evening realizing it, we can aggravate each other's early wounds that activate unhealthy attachment styles. A common dynamic in many relationships is the push-pull dynamic, otherwise known as the Pursuer-Distancer Dance.
Whether you are the pursuer or distancer, this dance can leave you feeling lonely and unloved. These feelings can lead to tension, blaming, score-keeping, and/or seeking solace outside the relationship. Couples Therapy can help you learn how to unpack the surface drama, get to the underlying issues, and find that initial joy for one another again.
If you or someone you know could benefit from Couples Therapy, please contact us for details!
