Why does it have to be so hard?!
I hear this a lot from couples who talk with me. They’ll say things like, “It seems like we fight over nothing,” and, “We can’t communicate or get on the same page.”
I see them struggle trying to discuss parenting issues, housework, sex, and finances. I see the hurt and anger over not feeling heard and understood. And I see the loneliness of not feeling connected.
What if there were a better way?
What if couples could recognize when they start to disconnect and stop it sooner, so it doesn’t escalate?
What if they could talk about what was really happening between them, instead of getting caught up in who said what to whom?
What if they could learn to build trust and acceptance, instead of sowing seeds of doubt and rejection?
Couples need the know-how, along with the tools and techniques, sooner rather than later.
You need a straightforward, practical approach to help you solve your problems.
This is what the GrowingTogether method is all about— providing you and your partner the tools and insights you need to repair conflict faster, communicate better, and stay connected.
To be clear, we're not offering a quick-fix scheme. All relationships take work! What we are offering is a science-based approach that has helped thousands of couples, that is easy to understand with immediate application.
Hi, I’m Tom Philp. I’m a husband of 21 years, a father, and a licensed therapist in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I founded Stonebridge Couples Therapy 10 years ago because I am passionate about helping couples.
I wanted to create a place where couples could get help through personalized therapy, and solid, practical, science-based training for their relationships.
I have presented at local and national conferences, marriage retreats, and seminars on couples therapy and relational issues and have been interviewed by local TV stations (KTUL Channel 8 and KOTV Channel 6) to share my expertise.
When I’m not working, you will find me hanging out with my wife and two boys, going hiking, camping, reading, or just relaxing and playing my guitar.
Here’s what GrowingTogether is all about...
Understanding the Rupture/Repair Process
