Couple / Relationship / Marriage Therapy
Couples/marriage therapy is a way to properly address the problems, conflicts, and tension in a relationship. Learning how to communicate affectively how one is feeling and thinking is imperative for a committed relationship to work. You may be verbally fighting about how your partner hasn’t done the dishes, but you’re emotionally fighting about “not feeling supported”, “feeling like you are being taken advantage of”, “not being heard”. Marriage therapy helps both partners figure out how they are impacting the relationship and ways they can work on healing it.
Ask yourself…Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like the you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner?
All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couple therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and get what you want out of your relationship.
Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:
- Addiction/Partner Addiction Support
- Balance (Work/Life/Family)
- Blended Families
- Chronic Illness
- Extended Family
- Mental Health Related Issues
- Sex Addiction/Sexual Issues
