If you're like my clients "Taylor and Sara": Your relationship is stuck on a treadmill of routines, chores, and responsibilities  that are killing your intimacy. 

Or if you're like "Emily and Aiden", You're bickering and then avoiding each other.  You're feeling lonely in your relationship even when you spend time together.   You're busy.  You're both on the computer, phones, or watching tv instead of connecting emotionally. You're exhausted anyway. It seems like there's no time for "quality time".  Dwindling or sporadic sex-life? SEX LIFE? You're saying: WHAT's that? 

Stressed out at work, or by parenting the kids? Feeling stressed about whether to have kids? Perhaps you're struggling with infertility, miscarriage, or postpartum depression? 

Are you longing for the spark you had in the beginning of the relationship and wondering how you can get back that feeling? Are you fantasizing about seeing other people? Or perhaps one or both of you cheated & your relationship feels like it's wrecked? If so, how do you put the pieces back together?

Counseling CAN help.
