A troubled marriage can cause anxiety, depression, and stress. Couples counseling can shine a light on the sticking spots and suggest new ways to approach old problems.
Relationships take work to be rewarding. Scott can help you navigate to a relationship that is caring, effective, and satisfying.
If you want to build a better relationship, Scott Olds can help.
Scott is a sensitive listener and uses talk therapy and body therapy techniques to overcome obstacles and help couples communicate effectively.
Do you feel misunderstood? If one or both partners in the relationship are highly sensitive, relationships can be particularly challenging. Scott is a highly sensitive person too, and helps both parties understand the special needs of the other and build a communication bridge. Sensitivity is a gift when both parties learn the needs of the other and celebrate each others perspectives.
Marriage issues typically start long before a couple seeks help. A relationship counselor guides the process but success depends on each person taking responsibility for their part in the relationship. Both people must be willing to change. Change begins by doing daily work to improve the relationship. Start by taking divorce off the table and commit to working on the relationship. Set aside the habitual negative interactions and replace them with kind and attentive gestures. Find fun in the relationship again.
Are you having the same argument over and over? Are you not feeling heard or appreciated? Seeing things from the other person's point of view can be hard for some people. Constant arguing without reaching a resolution can ultimately lead to divorce.
Scott can help break the unhelpful behavioral patterns and improve communication skills to help your relationship be happy and successful.
Lack of Communication?
Effective communication is critical in marriage. Poor communication leads to frustration and resentment for both, and undermines all aspects of a marriage.
Communication takes two! Couples counseling helps both parties develop effective listening and communication skills. Strong communication skills builds a strong relationship.
Lack of Intimacy?
Intimacy is feeling connected to our partner. Not feeling connected leads to feelings of living with a stranger or roommate. Lack of intimacy can be physical or emotional. Ignoring your partner's sexual needs is a primary cause of divorce.
Couples counseling can help you feel connected again. Enjoy each other again. Overcome resentment with kindness and appreciation. Bring intimacy back into your relationship.
Codependency in a relationship refers to a pattern of behavior in which one partner becomes overly invested in meeting the needs of the other partner to the detriment of their own well-being. This can involve taking on a caretaker role, neglecting one's own needs and desires, and placing the other person's needs above their own. Codependent relationships are often characterized by a lack of healthy boundaries, communication difficulties, and an imbalanced power dynamic. Individuals who struggle with codependency in relationships may have a history of trauma or early attachment issues that contribute to their patterns of behavior. Addressing codependency in relationships often involves developing healthier communication skills, setting and respecting boundaries, and working to enhance self-esteem and self-worth. Therapy can be effective in helping individuals overcome codependency in relationships and develop healthier patterns of behavior and relationships.
Low self-esteem in a relationship refers to a negative self-perception and lack of confidence in oneself that can negatively impact the dynamics of a romantic partnership or other close relationship. Individuals with low self-esteem in a relationship may struggle to assert themselves or communicate effectively, may be overly reliant on their partner's validation or approval, and may feel unworthy or undeserving of love and affection. Low self-esteem can also manifest in a fear of abandonment or rejection, leading individuals to tolerate mistreatment or remain in unhealthy relationships. Addressing low self-esteem in a relationship often involves developing self-awareness and self-compassion, challenging negative self-talk, and building healthy coping mechanisms to manage feelings of anxiety or inadequacy. Therapy can be a valuable tool in addressing low self-esteem and enhancing self-worth in a relationship.
