Dragging up the past
Here are some thoughts for you to consider about relationship conflict
Too often, in relationships, frustration leads to angry resentments and power struggles. Damaged trust is another trigger for arguments. It's true that some people argue because they need to be right about everything, however, most Couples argue because they are genuinely trying to resolve something but don't know how or can't get their partner on the same page.
Clear up misunderstandings and areas of low trust
In our sessions together I will help you express your needs and frustrations without losing your temper. During counseling you'll learn to let go. I'll show you ways to disagree without damaging each other.
