Stop Your Relationship Pain Now
Whether you are single or in a relationship, couples, marriage or relationship counseling can help you move from pain and struggle to happiness.
If your relationship pattern is based on struggle and pain, maybe you can relate to one or more of the following:
• Perhaps your relationships start out great and then deteriorate into a painful power struggle.
• You are frustrated with feeling misunderstood, perhaps. Invisible? Powerless? Not heard?
• You have had enough of feeling blamed, criticized and taken for granted.
• You suffer through painful relationships, choosing to stay because you fear being alone.
• You have trouble getting over relationships where you have been hurt.
• You find yourself exhausted by the constant conflict with your partner, arguing again and again about the same issues with no resolution.
• You feel more lonely when your partner is around than when you are by yourself.
There is hope with Couples Therapy or Marriage and Relationship Counseling
If you are married, living together, dating or single, and can relate to any of the above relationship patterns and problems, there is hope. Change is possible. Love does not have to include suffering. While all relationships have painful moments, it is possible to free yourself from past hurts and negative patterns of relating. You can learn to create the healthy, fulfilling, deeply satisfying and passionate relationship that you have always wanted.

The most recent research shows that we are not limited by what we are born with, that our brains and behaviors can change.
