It feels like you and your partner are speaking different languages. You say something, and they misunderstand. They reply, and you misinterpret that. There's a language barrier, and something is getting lost in translation. You feel unheard, alone, and unsure of what to do. You want so badly to explain to your partner how you feel and have them truly understand where you’re coming from. This cycle of misinterpretation has become so predictable that you’ve stopped talking about anything real in your relationship. You avoid each other and behave more like roommates than partners. You’d like to get back to feeling seen and connected.
Together, we’ ll work to break these communication patterns by uncovering how each of you learned to navigate conflicts in your previous relationships. We’ll identify the unique cycle of communication you and your partner share and learn new ways of interpreting and communicating. It’s time to speak and listen with more empathy, honesty, and compassion.
In therapy, you'll develop a better understanding of yourself and your partner and establish healthier cycles of communication. These skills will deepen your sense of trust and connection. Don’t wait any longer wondering if things are bad enough to seek help. Contact me today and we’ll work to co-create the fulfilling relationship you both deserve.
