Marriage is a two-way street.
Marriage requires compromise, without losing who you are as an individual. At times, this can feel easy. Other times, it can feel like a constant struggle. During the more difficult times, it is okay to seek help. Marital discord is more common than you might think. Arguing and fighting is not a sign that your marriage is doomed. Instead, it means that you and your partner might benefit from tools that help you improve communication and conflict resolution. Even refraining from fighting can indicate that better conflict resolution habits are needed.
Common Relationship Problems
Communication is key.
It is important to keep in mind that no one method of communication is right. A couples therapist will help you and your partner strengthen your bond through exercises while also finding the individual communication styles that work. Marriage counseling is not about choosing sides or placing blame. It is about finding the connection that you once had and working to strengthen it. The effort to preserve and maintain a marriage requires constant effort as you and your spouse are continually growing individually, and we can help you work together through these changes.
Did you know?
Couples counseling is about rediscovery.
Couples therapy is not only about finding the connection that you once shared with your partner, but also continuing to learn who you are as an individual. A relationship is made up of two individuals, and without understanding who you are as an individual, it can be difficult to develop your marriage in a way that is satisfactory for both partners.
Counseling is not only for times of distress. A loving bond is an ongoing piece of work. In fact, in today’s busy world, it can be difficult to find the time that is needed to work on an intimate relationship. Relationship counseling gives you dedicated time each week to complete this important task.
Our marriage counselors can help you heal.
Ignoring problems in any relationship often makes it worse. Fighting is a normal part of a relationship as long as it is done in a way that is productive and problem-solving. Harmful fighting, however, can cause one or both partners to withdraw from the relationship, often leading to more problems.
Our counselors understand how important marriage is and the effect that marital discord can have on life. Our marriage therapists act in a way that is neutral while encouraging you to openly discuss and work through known problems in the marriage. They can help you and your spouse identify your weaknesses and strengths as an individual and as a couple, providing ways to overcome your areas of concern. When you’re ready, we’ll help you get started.
