Do you ever feel that you and your spouse are talking different languages? You say one thing, he interprets it very differently than what you intended. He probably feels the same frustration, confusion, and emotional pain that you experience. So, both of you either distance to avoid painful experiences, or you argue because you are desperate to be understood by your partner.
Almost every couple that seeks my services to improve their relationship tells me that they have communication problems. Communication is a vital part of any relationship, particularly in marriage, in dating, or even in the process of a divorce and co-parenting after the divorce. Poor communication can seriously affect a marriage to the point where couples choose to stop talking to avoid arguments, or want to end the relationship to relieve the pressure of chronic conflict that goes unresolved.
If you want to be successful in your relationship with your partner, it is essential that you learn communication skills that can facilitate understanding, empathy, conflict resolution, problem solving, satisfaction, emotional connection, and happiness. In counseling sessions I can help you and your spouse by teaching you effective communication skills. You can learn how to connect with your partner by having meaningful conversations that allow you build a strong foundation of trust and respect, and to create the intimacy you so desire. Be decisive by taking the very important first step toward the relationship of your dreams by contacting me.
