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. Without that cohesive, unconditional, nurturing person, you struggle. Bigtime. Without a healthy, cohesive couple, every other part of life struggles from parenting to friendships to work. 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.
