Couples counseling and marital therapy focus on identifying fixed repetitive patterns of communication that are destructive. Couples work together to stop these patterns, and to create an atmosphere of safety. Trust and reconnection are gradually built as couples learn to identify, regulate, and share emotions. Couples learn to express their relational needs, and to acknowledge the needs of their partners. Blaming and defensiveness are replaced by taking responsibility for oneself, and learning to acknowledge the needs of our partners. These are the building blocks of renewed closeness, increased intimacy and the secure attachment that we naturally long for.
