Couples & Marriage Counseling

It can be difficult to accept that your relationship needs help. You and your partner used to bring out the best in each other. Now it doesn’t feel that way. Let’s get things back on track. Couples therapy is an effective way of resolving conflict and improving the health of your relationship. Therapy offers a safe space for couples to work through stressors and achieve their relationship goals.

Some common reasons for attending couples counseling include:
• Improving communication
• Conflict resolution
• Goal setting for the future
• Dealing with past issues
• Someone wants a divorce
• Sex and intimacy problems
• Healing from infidelity
• Resolving issues with trust
• Navigating an addiction or mental health disorder

The hallmark of a healthy relationship is effective communication. This requires a strong foundation of trust. Feeling like you are walking on eggshells around your partner, or unable to express your feelings about issues may signal a problem.

Disagreements are a part of any healthy relationship. Disagreements do not have to escalate into hurtful and damaging arguments. It is possible to work through problems in a loving and respectful way.

Unresolved feelings of hurt and anger can lead to feelings of resentment. It’s necessary to work through these feelings and reestablish a neutral base.

Growing together means taking the time to invest in yourself as well as your relationship. Our expectations of love as a natural, organic feeling may lead us to forget that love requires maintenance.
