Intimacy Issues in Relationships
Intimacy comes in many forms. Beyond sex, it can be holding hands, having the emotional connection for deeper talks about who we are, or even just bringing our partner a cup of coffee in the morning. Sometimes, couples can excel in the bedroom but flounder when it comes to the daily acts of intimacy. Sometimes they struggle with both, or just with one.
Couples who at one point were very open about their feelings, felt comfortable being vulnerable with each other, and who were affectionate, unfortunately can over time find themselves drifting away from the exhilarating pleasantness of true intimacy.
Sadly, the baggage of life builds up. Micro-hurts snowball into bigger issues. The root cause is very rarely a “lack of intimacy,” but couples often lack the skills and objectiveness required to tackle the problem(s.)
How Well Marriage Center Helps Intimacy
Our therapists have dedicated their careers to learning the science of relationships and have chosen to specialize in couples. Our strengths-based approach is very well suited to help couples reignite their intimacy in all forms.
By building on your relationship’s strengths first, we can then move to the deeper work of tackling what blocks intimacy, whether it stems from childhood abuse, maladaptive coping strategies put up to protect ourselves, fear of rejection, resentment, differing expectations, or any number of other underlying issues.
When you work with a specialized therapist who has dedicated their career to understanding and resolving relational barriers like trauma, abandonment and attachment issues, communication issues, conflict, separation adjustments, infidelity, and more, you have a greater chance of getting to the root of concerns that spring up between you and your partner. As experts in our field, we don’t run out of ideas, insight, and tools that you can use to improve your relationship dynamics.
Our therapists specialize in everything about how people relate to and connect with one another.
This, unfortunately, often includes topics like trauma, sexual issues, intimacy concerns, communication issues, withdrawal, and high conflict situations. We’re also specialized to assist with other aspects of life, like loss of job, infertility, death in the family, life changes, faith and secular issues, addiction issues, and how these all can affect relationships.
