A marriage requires maintenance to keep it working as well as the day you said “I do”. If you feel that you and your partner are not as close as you have been in the past, it’s crucial that you get started making the changes necessary to ensure your marriage thrives. Marriage counseling, provided by the professional couples therapists at Great Lakes Psychology Group, can help improve your relationship and provide the results you’re looking for quickly.
Six years is a very long time to endure the emotional alienation, stress, and loneliness that typically accompanies relationship distress.
“We keep having the same arguments over and over again“.
“We just aren’t as close as we used to be. We’ve grown apart.”
“I feel lonely, isolated, and sad in this relationship. I’m just not happy.”
“He/She doesn’t understand me. They never listen.”
Many of the marriage counselors at Great Lakes Psychology Group have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, a scientifically-proven approach to marriage counseling that has been shown to be effective in up to 90% of couples. Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy aims to understand the unique dynamics and issues in each relationship, unlike the common one-size-fits-all “skill building” methods utilized by many couples counselors. Marriage Counseling with an EFCT therapist will help couples identify the common recurring cycles of conflict and emotional withdrawal that characterize distressed marriages, improve communication, resolve conflicts, and increase and maintain mutual respect, commitment and happiness. Our goal is to help couples restore a secure emotional attachment that is highly predictive of marital stability and longevity. Great Lakes Psychology Group, through the Michigan Community for Emotionally Focused Therapy, promotes ongoing training of its marriage counselors as well as those in the broader community.
