COUPLES COUNSELING

 

Couples counseling addresses a number of issues in your relationship:

  • Learning more effective ways to communicate so that you feel seen and heard.

  • Creating safety so you can get a handle on life when it feels out of control.

  • Learning how to grow greater intimacy and passion in your relationship.

  • Disrupting the old patterns of communication so that something new can emerge.

  • Leveling up your love connection.

We work with a diverse group of couples: married, unmarried, premarital, cohabitating, LGBTQ* couples, couples struggling with their sexual intimacy, affair recovery, parenting challenges, difficulties with in-law relationships, trust issues, etc.

We welcome couples at all stages of their relationship, including those:

  • Wanting better communication, more intimacy and more fun together

  • On the brink of divorce or break-up

  • Uncertain of the future of the relationship

  • Struggling with dating, transition to marriage, parenthood, empty nest, and ageing

  • Proactive couples who want to deepen, strengthen and preserve their love

  • Premarital couples who want help building a strong foundation

Timing Is Everything When It Comes To Marriage Counseling

April 11, 2018

Truth be told, the effectiveness of marriage counseling is directly related to the motivation level of both partners and timing. For some couples, marriage counseling is really divorce counseling because they’ve already thrown in the towel. For instance, one or both partners may have already decided to end the marriage and he/she uses the counseling as a way to announce this to their partner. Sometimes, the problems in a marriage can be too ingrained and longstanding for the counseling to be effective. For others, they don’t honestly share their concerns with the therapist.

Couples should seek therapy long before they think they "need" to. Most experts believe that therapy can be an important part of your relationship. "Most issues within a couple start small and then grow in size when they don't get resolved. This is where therapy can help, by giving tools and techniques to improve conflict resolution," explained Kristie Overstreet, a licensed mental health counselor. "The majority of couples that I work with say that they should have started therapy years earlier."

Why Do Couples Have Disagreements, and How Are They Solved?

Every couple goes through highs and lows in their relationships, from small-scale scenarios to larger issues overshadowing each step of the relationship. According to marriage and family counselors, couples often have disagreements that go unresolved. In fact, approximately 70 percent or arguments go unresolved. This could mean that some of the arguments have the same patterns, causes, and results.
