Have you experienced a life transition (baby, move, work schedule, trauma) that requires a transition with the roles in the relationship?
Are you in a committed partnership but having difficulty communicating? Feel like they just don't seem to understand your point of view or are lacking in empathy? Are you tired of having unproductive arguments?
Guess what you are not alone!

"Marriage, ultimately, is the practice of becoming passionate friends." - Harville Hendrix, Ph.D - founder of Imago Relationship Therapy.
When we come into marriage we have a lot of ideas about how it is supposed to work. But we also bring a whole lot of our childhood baggage. We learn how to argue, how to interpret information (or threats), how to become defensive, and how a household should run as a child. This tends to bring in a us (child) vs. them (parent) fighting style to our marriage. Our goal is to uncover the ugly parts of our defenses and learn to grow (argue) as a team with the same goal.
