Being a healthy and happy couple is hard work. It’s easy for partners to get lost in the daily minutia of life and lose ground on creating a deeper connection and building their relationships. Couples face many life transitions such as welcoming children into the family, managing careers or entering into retirement. With these life event, common concerns may arise that the such as communication, intimacy, sexual desire, parenting and finances to name a few.
In addition, blended families, same sex couples, partners with religious difference and couples dealing with infertility or difficulties conceiving are natural areas of focus for couples. At Peace of Mind, each clinician has a significant amount of experience working with couples. And, because we are a focus on collaboration, it’s common for us to support couples with different providers involved depending on the set of circumstances presented.
