Intimate Relationships

An intimate relationship is more than just sex. It is a vulnerable connection with another person or people.   Many times, people will come to therapy because they realize there is a disconnect in their relationship.  Regardless of the reason why, strife in a relationship can affect multiple other parts of an person's life.

Some common reasons why a relationship is heading towards a breakup:

* Communication. This is probably the number one reason people say that their relationship is heading towards a break-up.  Countless times I have been told by individuals that they feel they just don't know how to communicate with their partner.

 

* Reduced intimacy.  Whether it is sexual intimacy or one of the multiple other types of intimacy, a reduction in intimacy can lead to a lot of resentment, anger, sadness, and a whole host of other negative emotions.

* Broken trust.  Cheating is much more than a sexual affair.  Cheating can be any action that breaks down trust in a relationship.  It could be sexual, financial, spiritual, or even emotional.  Once trust is broken, it is very difficult to repair. 

 

The good news?

 

None of the reasons above automatically mean that a relationship is or 'should' be over.  Relationship counseling can help with any of the above situations.
