When to Seek Counseling
Maybe you’ve been feeling more like roommates than romantic partners. Or an affair or some other breach of trust has caused a rift between you.
Perhaps you can’t seem to reach a compromise on issues like parenting, how to manage your money, and other responsibilities.
Or you may not even be able to pinpoint a specific event that’s pushing you further apart; You just know that your relationship has been floundering, and you don’t know how to fix it.
Our therapists can help you pinpoint and process the events that have caused the disconnect so you can regain the love and connection you are both seeking.
Relationship Ruts Are Not Uncommon
The connection we have with our romantic partners is one of the most important ones in our lives. This relationship can be a source of joy, security, and support when it is healthy and functioning well. However, if a relationship is experiencing some turbulence, it can cause great pain—especially if one partner is forced to confront some aspects of themselves that may be worsening the situation, such as constantly interrupting or not listening well. It can be difficult to put our own behaviors under a microscope. Many of us may not even realize that we need to change; it’s easier to pin all the wrongdoing on our partner. Sometimes, life circumstances can be the source of relationship struggles, such as a midlife crisis or having to deal with some other kind of transition. And when facing this type of uncharted territory, we may need to develop new communication or conflict management skills that we never had to use before. Our role is not to solve your problems for you, but to help you and your partner learn more effective communication skills in order to solve your own problems.
Working Out Your Problems
- Maybe you’ve tried working out your problems, only to have the same unproductive conversation over and over again.
- You may even avoid certain topics altogether, knowing that they will only result in yet another fight.
- As a result, the intimacy in your relationship has decreased, if not disappeared altogether.
- If you’re not arguing, then it seems that you struggle to communicate, period. You may start to feel hopeless, unsure if there is a way out of this relationship rut.
- Do you want to learn research-driven skills and tools to better communicate with your partner?
- Are you ready to work with someone who can show you how to restore the romance and connection you used to have?
When Is Marriage and Couples Counseling Most Effective?
- Both partners are unhappy about one or more aspects of the marriage or partnership but want the relationship to continue.
- When couples feel “stuck.” They’ve tried to resolve the issues on their own, but continue to run in circles, leading to resentment and frustration.
- The relationship has reached a tipping point. Perhaps an affair has been discovered. Maybe one partner is ready to leave, or both partners have fallen out of love.
- One partner feels unhappy, but is afraid or doesn’t know how to tell their partner.
- Couples are ready and committed to the therapy process. Counseling cannot be effective if both partners are not on-board with the idea and commitment of change.
