Counseling for Couples
A healthy relationship takes time and intentional work
If you're struggling to connect and communicate, you're harboring resentment, are unable to move past hurtful experiences, or simply feel like you are married to a stranger, it may be time to reconnect.
Here are some areas where couples counseling can help you:
- Setting budgets and managing money
- Establishing healthy boundaries with others
- Blended family challenges
- Conflict resolution skills
- Family systems
- Extended family struggles
- Religious beliefs
- Dealing with different parenting styles
- Sexual and Emotional needs
- Communication problems
- Sharing responsibilities as a couple
Couples counseling can help with poor communication. People often come to marriage and couples counseling because they are struggling to connect and communicate. Years of painful miscommunication can erode the foundation of a marriage, but it does not mean that hope is lost. It is possible to find healing and to bring the relationship back to health. Often, couples find that their relationships are stronger after counseling.
Signs of poor communication:
- Inability to move on
- Feeling unheard
- Feeling distant
- Reduced intimacy
- Yelling & screaming
- Unresolved anger that keeps coming up
- Unable to talk without fighting
It's never too early to begin couples therapy. We offer premarital counseling for engaged couples who are looking to sharpen their communication skills. Premarital counseling allows you to navigate tough issues before they come up. The skills you learn in counseling will benefit you for years down the road. Additionally, premarital counseling can help couples establish a positive attitude about seeking help should things get difficult in the future.
You didn't begin this relationship thinking you or your partner would cheat.
