What’s impacting your relationship? Why consider couples therapy or marriage counseling?

Couples seek therapy for a variety of reasons. Some include communication problems, conflict, parenting issues, or sexual difficulties. Often, couples have experienced difficult circumstances before coming to marriage counseling. These difficulties can include trauma or loss which is also impacting their relationship.
Therapy can be a valuable way for couples to work through these and many other kinds of challenges. A major part of couples’ therapy will be helping clients to define clear goals. That way, there is a clear direction to head in couples therapy.
We will work collaboratively with you to help better understand your unique relationship. This includes identifying negative interaction patterns that may be getting a couple stuck. Then, helping them learn new ways to relate in a healthy way so growth can happen together in the relationship.

In couples therapy, we find a path to restoration that best fits your needs.

We draw from a number of effective models of couple’s therapy. And, we use the best tools and methods available on behalf of our client’s relationships. Some marriage counseling methods include Gottman couple’s therapy, emotionally-focused couple’s therapy, and cognitive-behavioral (CBT) couple’s therapy.
Couples therapy and marriage counseling use various tools and skills training for relationships. Therapy can also be a safe place that is set apart in the couple’s schedule to go to those deeper, more difficult places. Of course, with the help of someone trained to guide and support them in the process. 
Relationships can have blind spots or get stuck in patterns that are hard to see or get out of. And, often, having someone else there to help recognize these blind spots or patterns is what is needed to overcome them.
Our desire is to help you join with your partner against the problems you are currently facing. So, you can finally experience the healthiest and best relationship possible.

Participation for marriage counseling is key.

Taking the first step to come to therapy as a couple can often be a game-changer in a relationship. The therapy room is a set-apart time for you and your relationship.
Just like we all need to go to the doctor for a physical health problem at times, our most important relationships can also need special attention and care during certain seasons of life.
Couple’s therapy is an investment and does require that clients are willing to put the work in to get the results they need out of the time and process. But, your investment in this work can have an enormous positive impact on your relationship and family for years to come. And, maybe even the rest of your life. 
Through couple’s therapy, you will learn to recognize your own negative relationship patterns. And, you will gain tools and skills to create new ways of positively interacting in your relationship.
This might include learning communication and conflict resolution skills. Or, helping you and your significant other understand one another on a deeper level. And, finally, respond to each other in the ways you need.
You and your relationship are worth it! Please don’t hesitate to call and make an appointment if you are in need. We would be privileged to walk alongside you during this season in your relationship story
