We are sitting with a large amount of uncertainty right now. It’s tempting to project into the future and imagine what things will look like in several months or a year. If your relationship feels like it’s falling apart, this can include fears of staying together unhappily, separation, or divorce. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is not to panic, to take a deep breath, and recognize that stress and trauma skew our perspective. Decisions (particularly life-altering ones) cannot (and should not) happen while we stay at home and wait for the curve to flatten.
In my latest video, I talk about how your relationship can be steady and strong as you weather the storm of COVID-19. I provide tools and insights that will support you in bringing your best self to the challenges that quarantine and stay-at-home orders present.
These are concrete things you can do from your home without the help of a couples therapist to keep your marriage from falling apart, and if you need extra support, we are available via online couples therapy and can likely take your insurance.
