Are you constantly fighting? Have you stopped communicating altogether? Do you talk past each other, or you start out talking about one thing and end up somewhere completely different, feeling like you're going crazy?
Is there no way to get through, even or especially when it matters the most? Do you feel dismissed? Is it intimidating, pointless, or a chore (maybe not even worth it) to ask for help or to be understood or appreciated by your partner?
Yup, these are symptoms of communication problems.
For many, communicating well is a second language that has to be learned and practiced before it feels natural.
Developing good communication is more than finding the words and employing techniques, it requires discovering our tendencies, strengths, and exploring our attitudes about and within relationships.
Communication is a fundamental and transformative aspect of most couples therapy.
