Couples Therapy Creates Stronger Bonds

Without a cohesive, unconditional, nurturing partner, every other part of life struggles. A healthy couple is the hub of the home.

Couple counseling can help. Challenges and obstacles are normal in all marriages. But marriages riddled with fighting, yelling, silence, and tension creates a very lonely place. Couple counseling provides tools for couples who need to learn to communicate better, decide which problems are solvable and which aren’t, and learn to argue more effectively. In marriage, each person brings their own thoughts, beliefs, opinions, and personal histories to the relationship. The very differences that bring us together initially in a relationship may be the very thing that tears us apart as our relationship is no longer new. But finding the right therapist is key.

Couple counseling helps us strengthen our bond. We seek to love and be loved from the moment we emerge from the womb. Being in-sync with your partner feels empowering – like someone is unconditionally loving, respecting, and cheering you on through all of life’s trials and tribulations.

What to Expect in Couple Therapy

Couple counseling ideally happens with both partners, but in the event that one partner chooses to not to attend, the therapeutic process is still very useful. All couple’s therapists are different, but there are a few things we’re passionate about helping our clients with at I Choose Change:

  • Help develop a deeper emotional connection between partners.

  • Develop healthier communication styles.

  • Understand the core issue behind conflict (hint: it’s not a difference of opinion!)

  • Using evidence-based therapy models to help develop better communication, conflict resolution, and intimacy.

How Couple Counseling Helps

“Our earliest relationships create a blueprint for all other relationships throughout our lifetime.”

Some seek couple counseling to better understand each other and strengthen their emotional connection. Others strive to rebuild a marriage they feel is otherwise broken and devoid of emotional, spiritual, and physical intimacy and connection. Couple counseling can help couples in all types of intimate partnerships.

Partners are hurting when they reach our office. They are desperately looking to improve a distressed and despairing relationship that usually doesn’t feel like a partnership. Many seek marriage counseling to address many specific issues, including:

  • Parenting differences

  • Blended families

  • Infidelity

  • Culture clashes

  • Sex and intimacy issues

  • Communication issues

  • Financial difficultes
