Love Poem

We shared love

We shared tears

We sailed together through fire and storm

We used to find the sun behind every cloud

As I look back

I start to wonder

Was it me or was it you

Something changed

We did not see

We did not feel like we used to do

Noone to blame

The feelings of sorrow and shame

Noone could see

What was happening to you and me

Couples Who Attend Therapy Together, Stay Together

Couples Who Attend Therapy Together, Stay Together

by Rachel Wood

Today’s society is fast-paced and consistently on the go. People are busy running errands and working from sun up to sun down, leaving little to no time for their significant other.

The crazy lives that so many people live demand a lot out of them. Between work, children and social lives, finding time to spend a quality, relaxed evening with loved ones is becoming increasingly more difficult. However, those who regularly attend couple therapy sessions are likely better able to balance their crazy lives.


Families in Salt Lake City often find themselves running from soccer practice immediately to piano lessons while stopping at the store to get things for dinner. With so much going on, while dad or mom is away at work all day, it’s no wonder many couples find themselves falling asleep on the couch while watching the evening news, instead of utilizing that time to enjoy each others company.

It’s not just any couple that can benefit from attending therapy; it’s all of them. Most relationships thrive when each person takes time out of their day to do even the small stuff, like a goodnight phone call or a good morning kiss. If more couples listened to a therapist, they would find that although they may not see their significant other as much as they’d like, they could still feel connected.

It’s no surprise that many young couples in Salt Lake City live these busy lifestyles and often begin to feel a disconnect from their partner.

Simply by attending therapy as a couple, these relationships could benefit greatly and save themselves from becoming completely disconnected.

You dont need my heart

Even if a couple is seemingly perfect, a therapy session is always a good idea. It’s a great place to express any feelings that one may have trouble expressing. It’s also a great way to get to know each other better. A therapist is able to help people emotionally, and many couples find that after attending a therapy session, they feel much more connected than before.

Date night doesn’t always have to be a night out in Salt Lake City. Quality time can be spent together at home, curled up watching a romantic movie at the end of a long and busy day.

Many couples have found that even connecting in the simplest of ways, such as a quick phone call on lunch or a goodbye kiss while rushing out the door, makes a large difference in their lives.

The world is becoming increasingly more fast-paced, but nearly every couple in Salt Lake City and places alike have found that they feel more connected to their partner after attending a few therapy sessions.
