Each member of a couple has their own unique backstory and understanding of the events that have occurred in their life (more commonly referred to as “baggage”, lol). While you may have many good things in common, it is the way these two different backgrounds interact with each other (outside of your awareness) that often causes discord.
We will bring these matters to light in a way that will allow you to form new patterns of interacting.
Reclaiming great communication and mutual respect can lead to renewed passion and mutual dedication to the relationship.
