Sometimes, arguments within a romantic relationship can feel like a zero-sum game. Couples can get caught up in the idea of “winning” or “losing” an argument and forget they share the common interest of being in a relationship with one another.

It’s easy for couples to forget they’re on the same team, especially during a rough patch. But if couples are on the same team, who’s the coach? 

Relationship coaches help couples discover and achieve their relationship goals and give them techniques to achieve them. Couples seek coaching for various reasons, and there are no wrong ones.

Finding Love in the Golden State

If you’re looking for a coach, take your time and weigh all your options. Choosing a coach you jive with and who really understands your relationship, concerns, and goals is important. More than that, it’s crucial you find a coach who you feel really sees you and your partner.

Relationships touch the most intimate and vulnerable parts of us, and sharing those things with people we don’t feel comfortable around can be difficult. You and your partner make up one of the most important teams you’ll ever be a part of, so make sure your coach is up to the task.
