When February rolls around each year, clients often begin to talk about relationships, whether past or present. Valentine’s Day tends to serve as a benchmark, leading people to take stock of where their relationship stands. I hear a lot about feeling misunderstood, miscommunication, and wanting to change what seem to be dysfunctional patterns that have developed over time. However, many are unsure of just how to proceed, as all of the above can be delicate matters, or difficult to articulate.
Often, the answer is linked to more open communication, allowing each partner to be heard, no longer allowing for assumptions to be made about how the other may feel. Like most things, this can seem easier said than done. As part of our “Sprirt of Change” series, Tara and I hope to address some of these issues, to help make it easier for you to incorporate what you learn in therapy into your relationship. In the “Re-Igniting Romance” workshop, we will offer some tips and tools that will ultimately help you to build more intimacy within your partnership. The goal is to enhance your existing relationship in a way that feels most comfortable for you. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, give us a call to register!
