Some couples really struggle with intimacy. And I’m not referring to “intimacy” as a euphemism for sex. I mean their relationship feels superficial and they’ve run out of “safe” topics they can discuss because all the harder topics make one or both of them anxious and uncomfortable. As a result, the marriage starts to feel a bit empty and unexciting, boring, and routine.

What do you do in situations like this? This is exactly the question I had for Adam and Karissa King. They are a husband-wife duo of therapists & coaches from Elk Grove, California. They have fantastic advice on how to better your communication skills and develop empathy for one another.
