Couples Therapy
in New Milford, CT

We all hear the phrase “Relationships take work” But until we are in a long-term relationship we don’t always fully know what a healthier relationship takes.  Very often it means learning a new level of acceptance, compromise, and intimacy. It means finding the balance between living in our truth and honoring our partner and theirs.  We question how much work should we be putting in and is it healthy? How do we get through to our partner when we feel like our relationship is struggling? How do we communicate topics that are difficult and scary? At New Milford Counseling Center we provide a safe place to explore what is going on in your relationship.

Couples therapy can help with the following:

  • When you are fighting more than usual

  • Having frequent arguments about everything

  • Constant contentious stressful conversations

  • Having thoughts of separation or divorce

  • Feeling unable to cope with your partner’s actions

  • Having a difference in parenting styles for your children

  • The desire to want to understand your partner better

Being vulnerable with your partner can be challenging on many levels. Having a healthy relationship requires feeling emotionally safe in order to express your feelings.  When you feel emotionally safe your partner is able to be curious and respectful in listening to what you are struggling with, even when it involves him/her.  Being able to communicate with your partner about something they are doing that bothers you can be challenging, as we all have emotional triggers. When we come from a place of being triggered, we are unable to truly listen and show compassion for our partner.

A couples therapist will support you on your journey to a healthier relationship with your partner.  This journey involves looking at how you communicate, what are each person’s triggers and how are they getting in the way, and what is blocking you from moving forward.  Through exploring these different areas, our couples therapist will be able to support you in practicing specific techniques to create and maintain an emotionally safe environment to express yourself.
