Relate Family Therapy & Counseling has therapists who can help. Communication is a skill that can be learned, adapted, and modified to fit your needs in your specific context. Struggling with communication doesn’t have to be just the way things are. A therapist can work alongside you and help you practice these skills in the controlled environment of the office and at home through exercises. They aren’t on one side or another. They are on your side, as a unit, and they can teach your how to do the same.
There are always going to be missteps and miscommunications in relationships. However, when it feels like the arguments are constant or like you are ships passing in the night it might be time to seek an outside source. Lack of communication feels like not trusting your partner(s), like not knowing how to bring up the budget, or like not being able to talk about your sex life or parenting without there being conflict or disengagement. It feels lonely and isolating. Relationships should bring connection and intimacy, but it's not right now.
