Conveniently located in Roseville, MI near E 10 Mile Rd and Gratiot Ave, Great Lakes Psychology Group offers effective marriage and couples counseling services for couples in any phase of their relationship.

“I’m not being heard.” “No matter what I say, I can’t make it better.” “I don’t understand how my words get so twisted.” Do any of these phrases sound familiar? Why is it that communication can be so difficult in intimate relationships? Experts who study couples dynamics suggest that because we are vulnerable in intimate relationships (i.e., risking rejection and abandonment), it is very difficult to communicate openly and effectively when we feel disconnected from and insecure with our partner. Trained couples counselors at Great Lakes Psychology Group have the tools to help couples reestablish a sense of security, and in turn, communicate more effectively.
Learning more about the primal emotions that can fuel conflict in relationships helps us to foster compassion and understanding for our partners. By working with a skilled marriage counselor at Great Lakes Psychology Group, suddenly “my spouse just doesn’t care about me” can turn in to “my spouse is terrified of disappointing me again, so he/she retreats and withdraws”. By establishing a mutual compassion for each other, you and your partner can begin to break down the walls you may have built between you.
Humans are wired to seek contact, care, and comfort from a significant other. It can be physically, emotionally, and cognitively damaging to us when we feel we have lost that closeness with our partner. Marriage counselors at Great Lakes Psychology Group understand this, and they have the skills necessary to help you and your partner establish a safe connection.
