We all adopt certain behaviors to avoid feeling rejection or disappointment. Anger, silence, and nagging are all expressions of our needs not being met. Part of what we do during therapy is identifying and learning to recognize those patterns. Cooperatively, we can put together the pieces and figure out what you really need from each other.
Everything comes back to effective communication and feeling safe and connected. At the end of the day, couples therapy is all about creating a stronger bond, so you both receive the comfort and reassurance you need to thrive as a partnership.
