About Couples Counseling
When a relationship has become strained or distant and you are not feeling close to your partner, you may feel hopeless that things will ever change. We believe both spouses want to feel understood.
Both want a happy and loving environment to come home to at the end of the day. When there is too much conflict, it may be time to see a therapist for couples counseling. Counseling can help improve empathy and understanding.
Counseling can help you and your partner move beyond a pattern of conflict and return to love.
Issues commonly addressed in couples counseling include:
The Silent Treatment
Depression and Anxiety
Alcohol and Substance Issues
Conflicts in Relationship with Family and In-Laws
We are not taught how to have a happy relationship in school. There are no required classes in how differently men and women experience the world. But is is dramatically different.
Yes, we know…in some ways it is very similar. But it is the differences that are crucial to understand. In couples counseling you will get the training they never provided in school. Training to know how to understand men, successfully handle women and their feelings, keep your partner happy, and get your needs met too.
By the way, there does seem to be a point of no return – where it is too late to repair a marriage. Don’t wait until you get to this point. Take action now. There is a saying: “Fortune favors the bold”. Be bold and get the support you need to repair your relationship.
Is Your Marriage Losing Its Spark?
The spark of love and romance does not have to fade away. If your marriage is filled with conflict and emotional distance – if your partner seems more like just a friend than a romantic partner – couples counseling may help in restoring love and desire to your relationship.
