WHAT IS MARRIAGE AND COUPLES THERAPY?

Marriage counseling services are essentially a form of therapy. They help couples understand each other. They are also successful in resolving conflicts and easing tensions. Relationship counseling provides you and your partner with tools and resources to negotiate your differences, solve mutual problems, and become better communicators. 

Human beings yearn for connection, love, and relationships. Relationships can be rewarding yet challenging as they progress. Differing values, beliefs, and cultural or spiritual implications can cause strain and challenges within the relationship. In addition, mental health and substance abuse concerns can further damage a couple and the relationship that they are building.

Couples and marriage therapy is a form of psychotherapy where a trained clinician works with a couple. Couples counseling focuses on the relational dynamics between the couple. The most common reasons to seek couples counseling include disagreements over finances, parenting styles, and sex or intimacy. Couples counseling is different than individual counseling. The clinician meets with the couple on mutually agreed upon goals - rather than meeting each person within the couple separately.

WHO MIGHT NEED MARRIAGE COUNSELING?

Dissatisfaction with your marriage can attack any couple, regardless of race, social class, or sexuality. However, some signs indicate that you and your partner may benefit from marriage counseling services. These signs include:

If you’re having trouble communicating with your partner, staying positive about your relationship is complicated. Communication is the key to understanding your partner’s desires and needs, as well as their outlook on life and their feelings. If your communication tends to bring up feelings of pain and insecurity, that indicates that you and your spouse have a failure to communicate. One of the tools that your counselor will assist you with is restructuring the lines of communication.
