Kenni Uribe, LCSW, CFRC is a Gottman Trained Therapist providing counseling for couples.
All couples experience conflict. For some it is about money, for others, it is about parenting, intimacy, or a pattern of constant arguing. Therapy can help.
Contrary to popular belief, couples therapy isn’t about who did what or who is to blame, but rather providing tools for communicating and asking for what you need.
According to the American Psychological Association, 75% of couples who opt for therapy say it improves their relationship.
Many couples struggle together for years before trying therapy, however, unhealthy behavior and resentful feelings become more difficult to change the longer they continue.
A major roadblock is when only one person in the relationship is wanting change and is willing to engage in counseling. Ultimately, both people have to be willing to participate.
With couples counseling, you will learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, manage conflict, overcome obstacles, and celebrate successes.
