Human beings are created for relationships, and it is true that we are hurt in relationships and also healed in relationships.
Therapy can be a catalyst to move your relationship from a place of hurting to healing. I work from a family systems and attachment perspective. We all have ways (mostly unconscious) that we attach to our partner (examples are avoidant, pleaser, anxious, controller attachment) . Our partner also comes with his/her own type of attachment style. Through bringing awareness to the way we relate/attach and doing the work around it; your relationship can get to a place of healing and wholeness that has yet to be experienced.
