Rashad and Daena have been together for three years, and for the most part, their relationship has been great. Sure, they’ve fought and argued like any other couple, but they’ve always been able to depend on each other for support and guidance. But recently, it’s started to feel like there’s distance between them—when they talk or are intimate, it’s like they aren’t truly connecting anymore. Daena is starting to worry that their relationship might be in trouble. 

Daena doesn’t want to lose her relationship with Rashad, but she isn’t quite sure what to do. Instead of giving up, Daena plans on scheduling a session with a couples therapist about the relationship issues that they’re facing. After talking to Rashad about it, both partners have agreed—it’s time for them to take the next steps and seek professional assistance from a couples therapist.

Like Daena and Rashad, many couples experience difficult, turbulent times in their relationships. If your relationship seems to be suffering, consider whether talking to a couples therapist or marriage counselor at Thriveworks in Louisville, KY could help. With the professional guidance of one of our providers, you and your partner might be able to reconnect and engage with each other in new and healthy ways.
