We each bring to our relationships a mixture of strengths and weaknesses. Our personal experiences and what we witnessed growing up in our own parents’ marriage and relationships can profoundly affect the relationship skills we develop. Then, when we enter a relationship, the combination of our skills and those of our partner serve to create a complex dynamic in terms of the way we interact with and respond to, one another.
Some of us are fortunate to have developed solid relationship skills and to meet someone with similar abilities, needs, and expectations. Although no relationship is perfect, this can result in a more harmonious union. Most of us, however, maneuver through the ups and downs of our relationships without having ever learned some of these skills. This, in turn, can lead to increased risk of conflict, anger, and resentment.
At The Clinic, our couples therapy will help you strengthen your relationship through a foundation of effective communication, honesty, understanding, respect, compromise, and patience. Our experienced marriage and couples therapists will help you develop practical relationship skills to form a stronger, more loving, and satisfying relationship.
