Psychotherapy and Marriage Counseling can help you decrease your reactivity to or withdrawal from your partner. You can learn compelling ways that invite love and support.
At the Mid-Manhattan Center, you can find a new appreciation for your partner leading to an open affirmation of each other. By accepting your differences, you can discover what makes you a great team.
Our goal is to help you develop a special sense of “Meaningful Closeness”, where you feel heard and understood.
Are you still sad about how Valentine’s day went? Many couples who have grown distant from each other do feel that way. They wish somehow that on this day of days, they could have buried the past and felt close again.
One or both of you may be because of a big or small disappointment or fight. You may have spent so little time with each other lately. Expect your relationship to go such have these ebbs and flows.
However, if your Valentine’s Day was due to the aftermath of an extramarital affair, you may feel like you should have gotten over this by now. A recent study of infidelity describes how many years have to go by before couples begin to feel relaxed in their relationship again.

Exploring activities that lead to intense excitement on your own will give you much to share and make you a fascinating partner.
