To remain alive and vibrant, to grow and to deepen, to grow and to deepen, relationships must shape and reshape themselves over time, adapting to alterations in the internal and external landscape, to personal changes, to the family life cycle, and to the often unpredictable challenges that life brings. In the process, couples inevitably encounter difficult periods and, sometimes, they get stuck. Usually, they find ways to get “unstuck” but when they cannot, the resulting distrust, discontent, and resentment can sow seeds that gradually undermine the foundations of the relationship.
When couples seek help in getting ‘unstuck’ before these seeds have had time to take root, difficult periods can become opportunities to develop greater understanding of each other and of themselves, to build on the best of what is between them, and to acquire patterns of interaction that will help their relationship flourish.
