partner, though not acting on any particular outside sexual urge, still has an emotional connection with the person they’d had the affair with?Or what if you’ve been married for 25 years and discover that your spouse has an emotional relationship with a peer at work? Are you prepared for a scenario where, after some reflection and discovery, your person is now able to articulate that the “thing” they’ve been missing is a deep(er) connection with someone else that isn’t you? And what if that need is now as important and weighted as their connection to you? An inability to navigate these sorts of complex conversations is a really good reason to come to couples therapy.
Proudly, we are able to help couples overcome the damage to the relationship that happens when the things you never knew come to the surface. We are able to work with individuals who are discovering their polyamorous sides, or their partners who may need additional support. We understand the unique needs and distinct challenges that may arise in these relationships. We are, afterall, human too. Couples therapy is not magic, but it can be miraculous.
