Maintaining healthy, long-term, intimate relationships might look easy from the outside, but anyone who has been in one can tell you that it is hard work. Relationships need time, care, attention, and tending. Sometimes we fall into a “relationship rut,” or we go into and then stay in “autopilot mode.” Plus, in our ever increasingly fast-paced world, the health of our most important relationships can often suffer the most.
At Evolve Counseling in Seattle, we have a fundamental belief that all healthy relationships are based not just on love, but also trust and respect. When couples come to us for counseling, usually one or more of these essential components has been eroded or damaged over time. We work with couples to help identify the relational patterns that have contributed to this erosion without blame or judgment. Then, we help couples find new ways of interacting to start rebuilding the healthy foundation of their relationship for a better, stronger, and lasting intimate connection.
