Every individual brings with them a context and set of assumptions about the nature of relationships, partnership, and intimacy which may or may not be completely understood by themselves or the their partner. Often the messages sent by one and received by the other become garbled because of these different assumptions, like a game of emotional “telephone”. Decoding and understanding one’s own assumptions, fears and desires, as well as those of one’s partner, can help set the stage for better understanding, greater intimacy, and more mutual decision-making and support. That is where Marriage Counseling in Tallahassee, FL and Gainesville, FL come in.
Couples therapy in Jacksonville, FL and Orlando, FL is rooted in the premise that the challenges of a romantic relationship are best addressed within the contexts and interactions of the relationship itself. We work with couples to identify and deal with both immediate and more long-term challenges, and to get at and address the roots of those challenges so that they do not forever reassert themselves as powerfully as they have been, and when they do reassert themselves, to give couples the tools, insight, and understanding to deal with such challenges more effectively together.
At Star Point Counseling Center in Tampa, FL and Brandon, FL we are currently offering online and over the phone counseling in Tallahassee, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Gainesville, Florida!
