Whether you are a married couple wishing to restore the passion and intimacy you once had, single and hoping to establish a romantic relationship, or if you are recovering from a recent divorce, relationship therapy can help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and help you establish healthier ways of interacting. At Fayetteville Psychotherapy Associates, we can help you develop the skills you need to create the relationship you desire.
Many couples find that, although their relationship is a loving one, "something is missing" in their day-to-day interactions. The demands of careers, children, in-laws, and other aspects of their lives have left their relationship lacking the strong connection they once felt for each other.
It is possible to regain true intimacy and reconnect with your partner. At Fayetteville Psychotherapy Associates, Dr. Bill Spaine has helped hundreds of couples rebuild the bonds of their relationship and reconnect with each other on a deeper and more intimate level through couples therapy. We strongly believe that no one should have to "settle" for anything less than a truly fulfilling relationship with their partner, and true intimacy is a cornerstone in any such relationship.

Coping with the emotional toll of divorce is difficult for almost everyone. Even in situations in which divorce is amicable, many individuals report feelings of grief, anger, resentment, and fear as they face the prospect of beginning a new life after marriage has ended.
Even if your marriage was unsatisfying, you may find that you go through a significant grief process when your marriage ends. While grieving is a natural and, generally, expected process, you may find that you are caught off guard by the strength and variety of emotions that you experience after your divorce.
Anger at your former spouse, yourself, and others is very common when a divorce occurs. While anger is a perfectly normal reaction, in some cases, extreme anger, or anger that persists too long can be damaging to you, your children, and your relationships.
Many individuals express feelings of fear when their marriage ends:
- "What will I do with my life now?"
- "How will I ever take care of myself?"
- "Will I ever find another relationship?"
- "How will I parent my children by myself?"
- "How do I keep from making the same mistakes again?"
Many individuals have sought the assistance of our therapists to deal with these strong emotions as they coped with the pain and life changes brought on by divorce. Through individual therapy, they have learned to navigate their new lives and learned to better understand themselves so that they can achieve more successful and fulfilling relationships in the future.
