Your partner, like you, will be encouraged to speak openly and honestly. If a secret comes up, then your partner already knows it, and I can guarantee that I will not judge you. If a secret exacerbates your problems, it needs to be dealt with. If you or your partner say something negative (and you almost certainly will), I will make sure that you both have the opportunity to express your point of view. Releasing negative feelings will allow you to understand what each of you is experiencing. Your relationship is my client, so I will make sure you both feel safe and open and honest.
