Have you ever thought: “If only my partner did this or that, I would be happy!” The truth is, we can only control our own conduct. Being part of a successful couple involves compromise; however, we never have to compromise who we are as individuals. Through couples counseling, we strike a balance between maintaining your personal identity while modifying each partner’s behavior to meet the needs of your relationship. Through therapy, couples will begin to feel more empathy for each other and reduce harmful blame. The result is a more loving and communicative environment in which to prosper.
