Building communication can help you to respond in a way that supports connection with others. Once we learn how to talk about our needs in an authentic, direct way with our partner, family members, co- workers or significant others communication becomes easier.

Grief/Loss

Grief is a normal response to loss during or after a disaster or other traumatic event.

In couples therapy with Montriel you’ll learn about healthy communication and conflict resolution surrounding issues such as money and financial stability, respect and validation, grief and loss, expectations in a relationship, and even power struggles. Montriel may also focus on:

Communication

Do you feel like you just can’t seem to communicate with your partner anymore? Are you no longer sharing your feelings with each other? Perhaps you're worried your partner has secrets. You may even be feeling unable to trust your partner and have a sense they are hiding something and suffering guilt. Essentially, you feel you're drifting further and further apart. Not communicating is the root cause of many problems in relationships and these feelings are an indication that communication breakdown is happening. It’s often difficult to see what is going wrong on our own. If you're not communicating effectively it's because you're stuck in a strong pattern you can’t see. Montriel will help you identify and call out this self-defeating pattern.

Infidelity

When an affair happens, the betrayed and the betrayer are affected. The good news is that healing can happen even though trust has been broken. When both are willing to roll up their sleeves and be patient as the betrayed partner works through the loss of innocence and trust, then rebonding will happen. You'll learn to accept that the relationship as it was is over but a new and deeper love can be born. Both will learn to love in a new and empowered way. With time and commitment deep transition can occur and the the marriage, as impossible as it may seem can thrive again.

Parenting Struggles

There are many styles of parenting. Psychologists refer to parenting styles as either authoritarian, permissive, uninvolved, or authoritative or some variation of each of these. There is not right way, there is just your way, as parents. The goal is to parent as a team. You'll develop a unified view of your life goals for your family with Montriel. Once you have an overall plan in place for your family, then it's time to be concise about what you both agree is going to be your daily parenting routine. It's important to not only recognize the differences between your parenting styles but to also put real effort into understanding each others reasons for having those differences. What was your spouse's childhood like? How did they become who they are?

Sexual Issues

Two people can have different libido levels. Tension can create from not talking about sex and intimacy issues and related differences between two people. Left unresolved, one or both partners can feel bitter or neglected. Intimacy issues are often a symptom, not a cause. Therapy will help you look at the thoughts and feelings that might be the real reason for your roadblocks in the bedroom.

Major Life Changes

Retirement, moving, midlife crisis, health matters, and kids leaving home can have impact on a relationship. Further, when life changes for one person and not the other, there can be a sense you are suddenly living different lives. Even if you both experience the change, you might feel differently about it. Judgements and conflict can come into play, and you can drift apart. It's very common that one spouse will blame the other for the change. In couples therapy you can voice your opinions about the change in a helpful and constructive way. Montriel will facilitate a safe space and help you dive deep into asking the important questions about what is really going on. This will lead to new perspectives and ways to forge forward that you just couldn’t see on your own.
