It’s a common misconception that couples counseling is only suited for people who are completely miserable, or are contemplating divorce. While it’s true that people in those situations often seek counseling, there are many reasons to see a therapist that have nothing to do with the desire to end a relationship.
Some of my patients feel like they’re in a relationship rut – like the grind of daily life (work, kids, etc) has made their relationship (or relationships) boring or monotonous. Some partners feel themselves drifting apart for one reason or another. Some are having the same argument over and over and over with no end in sight. Some are struggling with their own mental health issues and it’s affecting their relationship.
There is always room for improvement in our relationships, but we don’t always know how to do it ourselves. Relationship counseling can help you and your partner form a stronger bond – one that is communicative, fulfills your needs, and is built to last. Everyone deserves to be in a relationship that brings them joy and happiness.
Some of the common reasons couples seem therapy are:
- Addiction/Partner Addiction Support
- Balance (Work/Life/Family)
- Blended Families
- Chronic Illness
- Communication Skills
- Extended Family
- Mental Illness
My philosophy behind couples counseling is to help people develop the skills needed to build and maintain enduring love. Each person is different, and therefore each relationship is different, and we’ll be sure to tailor our sessions to meet your unique needs.
