Does it feel as though you and your spouse:

  • Can’t really communicate without fighting?
  • Have the same conversation over and over, but nothing ever gets resolved?
  • You aren't on the same page about parenting, finances or another important issue?
  • Feel lonely, abandoned or hopeless even when you are right beside each other?
  • Lacking physical or sexual intimacy?
  • Can’t heal wounds after a physical or emotional infidelity or betrayal?

A broken relationship can leave you feeling abandoned, rejected, isolated and humiliated.  How did you and your spouse get here?

As the initial relationship courtship has worn off, you may have noticed that how you each connect and communicate has changed in many unexpected ways. This natural shift can gas light communication problems, leaving you to think something is terribly wrong with you, your partner or your relationship.

How do you handle your feelings and concerns? If you constantly argue, you may feel like your needs and opinions are being dismissed, misunderstood or ignored. Conflict could cause one of you to shut down or seek others, refusing to talk about relationship issues, even as they become more entrenched. Perhaps it feels as though you and your significant other never really talk anymore. As these problems persist, you might feel hopeless in your own life, desperate for acknowledgement, understanding, healing and connection. Do you wish you and your partner could approach each other with genuine interest, care, love, intimacy and trust?

Most Couples Experience Challenges in Their Marriage and need a Marriage Counselor

The truth is that every couple faces relationship challenges from time to time.  Difficult moments can be—job loss, health concerns, the death of a loved one, children leaving home—can affect a person’s emotions or behaviors, which in turn affects your relationship with one another. Even “normal” day-to-day obligations and responsibilities can create widening fractures between the closest of partners. Stress, anxiety or depression can disrupt communication or trigger persistent arguments, leaving each partner feeling even more lost, abandoned and stuck.

When relationship difficulties arise, many couples spend more time talking with family members or friends than with each other to resolve the issues. Infidelity creates a breach in trust, love and communication. Often, you end up feeling more like a business partner than a lover.

Sometimes, the time and attention you invest in another part of life becomes far greater than your commitment to keep the relationship healthy and happy in your marriage. The distance created when one partner feels neglected can trigger thoughts of separation, abandonment or divorce.

You’re probably sensing a truth many of us ignore: Intimate relationships are fragile and difficult. The good news is that a compassionate, skilled and experienced couples therapist can help you rediscover fulfillment and satisfaction in your relationship.

Couples Counseling Can Help You Revive Your Relationship

All couples experience challenges, 

Whether your problem started two weeks ago or 20 years ago, couples counseling can help you learn to change, grow, connect and heal within your relationship or marriage.

In sessions, we’ll begin by addressing your individual concerns, needs and desires to begin healing. When you and your spouse work with a therapist who truly understands and balances each of your individual needs, it becomes easier to locate and work below the surface of relationship problems, no matter how simple or complex they may seem.

We’ll also identify what works in your relationship, so we can also acknowledge success and nurturing. A common misconception about relationships is that one issue or wound destroys everything when it doesn't. That myth unfairly hurts the relationship. The truth is that even when a particular challenge seems as though it has ruined everything, your relationship still has good memories, big and small. That truth makes change possible with help from a skilled marriage counselor and coach.

Maybe it feels like you have grown apart and your partner is not the spouse with whom you fell in love. The truth is that neither of you is the same person but you can learn to weave. As you’ve each navigated personal and career challenges, your individual thoughts and behaviors have changed, but yo can recourt for a new relationship. In couples therapy, you can gain important insights into yourself and your partner so you can better understand the need to weave in your relationship.

You may still have questions about couples and marriage counseling…so call for answers


What can couples counseling really do for us at this point?

Counseling is not about getting you back to where you used to be. After all, that path brought you here. Instead, couples and marriage counseling directs you to a place you’ve never been before, toward a relationship built on effective communication, connection and loving trust. 

What if my partner refuses to come to counseling with me?

Most partners decide they want to express how they feel also and come soon after the spouse or partner comes.
