Problem solving is a necessary skill for all Couples

One of the mysteries of love is that we can deeply love someone that we can’t seem to get along with. This is an ongoing frustration for many Couples and one that I am happy to help you with.

There are certain big problems that can blow up the foundation of a relationship ~ like infidelity ~ but usually the problems that plague us the most are the smaller ones that simmer along, more like rust than an explosion. One of these is the inability to solve problems together in a smooth, efficient way.

Have you ever wanted to solve a problem with your partner only to have it turn into a battlefield of unexpected drama?

This is stressful and can be disheartening. Try as you might the conversation just doesn't go in a straight line and instead of solving one problem it seems that new problems have suddenly cropped up. It can make you think that you are basically incompatible, but that may not be the case. More likely you need to learn specific new skills.

Marriage Counseling has been around long enough now for us to know that there are certain techniques that actually work. Techniques that come from the realm of Conflict Resolution and have been successfully modified for the fiery emotional terrain of love and marriage.

If you would benefit from learning new ways to communicate and resolve problems together I can help you.
