Relationships are complicated, messy, and downright DIFFICULT. Sometimes they can be the biggest source of joy in our lives and at other times, can be the biggest source of pain. For many, all we want is to be loved, understood, and accepted by a partner. You can have sparks fly again and feel connected to your partner in ways you never have before. Couples therapy at Driftwood can help promote understanding, curiosity, and empathy in your relationship to help you thrive as partners.
Areas of Expertise
Creating deep, meaningful intimacy with a partner can feel like learning a new dance over and over again, it's always changing and can seem like you never quite get the hang of it. Learn new strategies to feel more connected and satisfied physically and emotionally with your partner in therapy.
Family planning can be a difficult topic for many couples. Whether it's deciding on what your family makeup will look like or preparing for a little one, relationship therapy can help you navigate these conversations and transitions in your partnership.

Many people feel the tension of balancing their career with the people they love most. Late nights at the office and emotional unavailability can create conflict and resentment in relationships. Reconnect with your innermost values and gain confidence in setting boundaries to help your relationship thrive.
Many relationships suffer from communication breakdowns or a complete lack thereof. Communication is one of the most integral parts to the success or failure of a relationship. Discover how to better communicate your needs, as well as understand your partner's, throughout the ups and downs of life.
