Marriage counseling and couples therapy
Are you tired being misunderstood by your partner?
It is common to have disagreements in relationships. However, when the disagreements turn into arguments, the resolution may feel impossible. Eventually, you may find that you are having the same argument, again and again. It’s exhausting. When the argument escalates, voices escalate.
At times, it is unclear to you why your partner behaves in ways that don’t make sense, that are frustrating, or that lack consideration for you. Each partner hopes that, for just a moment, the other will stop, listen, and understand.
In between each argument, there is quiet. You keep your distance, but it feels like you’re walking on eggshells. Then you bite your tongue, not wanting to fuel the fire that ignites the conflict. You worry that your arguments are impacting your children, but you just don’t know how to stop arguing. The love that you have, the hope that you have, keep you and your partner together. However, loving someone does not seem to provide you with a resolution. That is because conflict is one of the most difficult challenges to overcome in a relationship. Yet, the conflict can end. There is hope.
