Communication Skills

By learning how to identify your own emotions, and better share them with your partner, each member of a couple can finally truly understand each other. As an example of how Dr. Giardina will help you talk to each other differently, see the Blog post below, “The Relationship Equation”. Dr. Giardina also focuses on expression of hurt feelings, and education on how to effectively apologize for past wrongdoings.

Self-Awareness

While couples therapy does not guarantee that the relationship/marriage remains intact, Dr. Giardina prides himself on aiding couples achieve improved quality of life through the process. Much of couples therapy focuses on the individual – and helping each member of the couple become more aware of what he or she wants for their life and relationships. Though not ideal, this process sometimes means recognizing that the relationship is no longer satisfying an individual’s needs. You will learn to recognize self-created distress and patterns, and take responsibility for your role in relationship conflict, or for the choices you’ve made across relationships in your life.

Sex and Love

While sex and love don’t always co-exist, this is the ideal in a committed relationship. Dr. Giardina helps couples talk openly and honestly about a complicated topic, within a supportive and nonjudgmental setting.
