Love is not the problem
I have been a marriage and family therapist for more than a decade and I have seen many married couples go through difficulties in their relationship. The problem usually is not that they don’t love each other.
Signs of depression
Do you have any of the following? Check off what is appropriate to you:
depressed mood or sadness most of the time (for what may seem like no reason)
feeling tired a lot
We all have strengths and limitations. We need to celebrate our strengths and either work on or accept our limitations.
Does couple therapy work?
Yes, especially if your therapist is trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is a short term evidence-based couple therapy created by Drs. Sue Johnson and Les Greenberg.
