Relationships/Couples

How do you know when you need marriage counseling?

As a marriage and family therapist in Niantic, I see all types of families. What if I told you there was a transformative process for making a relationship work better? Many couples seek couples counseling because they are fighting, frustrated, and yelling. So, marriage therapy in Niantic can help you feel less distant, fight more fairly and calmly, and feel understood.

Frustration? Fighting? Anger & Resentment?

When your partner yells, it is because they feel unheard. And, yes, yelling does not help the situation. And, typically, when one person yells, the other partner shuts down and develops low self-esteem.

Or, the both partners escalate emotionally and yell at each other. Do either of these sound like you and your partner?

Is there a magic formula to help partners feel connected?

So, back to that original question. Really, is there a magic formula to make fights stop and partners feel connected? Even if I say, yes, I’m sure you wouldn’t believe me. Difficult relationships are easy to spot in the the movies and on tv. In Shameless, yelling and dramatic fights are the norm. Not to mention, many movies portray alcohol and drugs to help with sex, bonding, and intimacy, when in reality they hinder trust. Couples counseling in Niantic helps you and your partner learn how to relax together and connect. Katie Ziskind specializes with distant couples and offers yoga therapy sessions in supplement.
