The evidence is overwhelming that couples experience difficulties in establishing and
maintaining healthy, loving relationships when faced with the stressors found so commonly
in today's society; however, at Responsive Centers, we believe successful marriages are
possible. Unfortunately, conflicts are far too common with many couples struggling to
communicate with each other, often feeling misunderstood and unappreciated. Marital
therapy seeks to build a sound marital foundation by focusing on the skills necessary
for successful relationships.
At Responsive Centers, our approach to marital therapy is to examine the ways in which
couples make attempts at emotional communication and to collaboratively help them learn
to make constructive and durable changes. Through assessment of current communication and
problem solving approaches, we are able to understand the issues and provide guidance for
turning alienation into connection, withdrawal into engagement, and adversaries into allies.
