All relationships need to be worked on
Often couples wait to seek help when they feel their relationship is beyond help. They feel that there is no way to salvage what they have.
Communication may have broken down.
Intimacy happens less and less and fighting is happening more and more.
Sometimes we can see our relationship getting off course and we don’t know how to get it back on track.
We want to make sure that we have our ducks in a row so we know we are on the same page with our partner when it comes to parenting, finances, in laws, expectations and our belief system.
