You have the same discussions/arguments over and over. They escalate quickly and are hardly ever productive. Yelling doesn't help, but neither does avoiding important topics altogether. Yet, those are the two places you often find yourself in.


Communication is one of the most common issues couples struggle with. What you say and how you say it can have a huge impact on your connection as a couple. Additionally, what you don't say, no matter how well-intentioned, can also contribute to tension in the relationship. Together, we will unpack all the things that are said and unsaid. We will explore your communication styles and what are often unconscious beliefs and expectations. We will learn and practice ways to de-escalate and finally break out of this cycle. The hope is that you deepen your understanding of each other and walk away from therapy with useful tools to communicate in a productive way. 


Culture influences the way we see and experience the world but also how we exist in relationship with our partner. Culture shapes who we are and what we expect in relationships, but often these expectations are not talked about and might even clash or make your partnership feel unbalanced, or even tense. Together, we will explore your relationship from a cultural lens, including how you were raised, the values you grew up with, the role of family and friends in your relationship, as well as many other things that may contribute to your dynamic. We will brainstorm ways to shift and help both of you get your needs met, so that each partner feels validated and understood.
