Manhattan Relationship Counseling
“Marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get. It’s something you do. It’s the way you love your partner every day.”
– Barbara De Angelis
Relationships can be fragile things and are at times easily damaged. Inevitably, conflicts and hurts will arise when two people decide to share a life. But strength is gained by learning to overcome the struggle.
Common issues include:
- Constant arguing
- Lack of time investment
- Different ideas of roles, rules and expectations
- Lack of intimacy
- Re–hashing the same fight over and over
- Learning to become a parent
I work with individuals to regain a balance in their marriage or partnership and learn to develop a relationship that is richer than ever before. One that brings them joy and strength and protection instead of pain and loneliness. Together we work to remember how it all started… the love and passion, and then to look at how it began to go wrong. By looking at the patterns of the past, we can figure out a way to fix it.
A relationship is a living thing and must be nourished and protected. If your relationship now provides more pain than joy, it’s time to begin the process of healing.
