Most couples problems stem from underlying relationship insecurities. When we feel criticized or unappreciated by our partner, we often focus our energy on defending ourselves, and begin to share less of ourselves with our partner. Couples therapy helps to uncover the negative patterns in which we have gotten stuck, and helps partners feel safer to confide in each other and express their true longings, needs, and feelings. The goal of couples therapy is to build a more secure bond between you, so you can express more of yourself to each other, and can feel closer and less fearful of giving each other space to develop and grow.
