I can't stress enough that difficult times do not necessarily mean the relationship is heading for a crash. It’s natural for people to start seeing each other’s flaws more clearly after they have spent a lot of time together. Learning more about who our partners really are, can be joyful though sometimes we can experience disappointments mixed in as well. But the disappointments do not have to mean your relationship can't work or heal. If you feel counseling may help get your relationship back on track there are a few things you should know.

When couples come in for a counseltation, I often hear how often they get stuck in negative spirals of accusation and hurt feelings. Couples often are surprised when I ask, "Why didn't you begin by asking for what you want, instead of accusing your partner of not giving it to you"?
So often we get stuck in negative cycles. We are unhappy with something our partner does. We get hurt too easily, and we retaliate by creating an exit plan in our minds.
