All couples have conflicts. The difference between happy and unhappy couples is whether they have a healthy process of repair. Dr. Bailey specializes in helping couples develop that repair process. The way many couples argue leaves them feeling frustrated, distant, and unfulfilled instead of feeling resolved and reconnected. Eventually they stop talking because it just turns into a fight. Without a healthy repair process they often grow apart and become more like roommates. Approaching couples from an attachment perspective, he helps couples develop the closeness and connection they desire. The process entails identifying negative patterns, stop blaming each other and learning how to find more effective ways to respond to each other.

Men in Therapy
