Are You Searching For Answers To The Problems In Your Marriage?
Have breakdowns in communication with your spouse reached a point where nothing ever gets resolved? Do you fluctuate between having arguments and not talking to each other? Are you worried that if you don’t take action soon, your marriage may be at risk of ending?
If you’re having the same fight with your spouse over and over again, it can begin to feel like Groundhog Day. Maybe you’re feeling isolated because not only have you grown distant from your partner, but you’re also keeping family and friends at bay to avoid sharing your marriage problems with them.
The uncertainty of how you’ll resolve your issues may be leading to depression or anxiety. And if you’ve experienced a betrayal in the marriage, whether through porn addiction, an affair, or an inappropriate emotional relationship, you may be grappling with how you’ll ever move past it.
Issues That Were Initially Ignored May Now Be Surfacing
Perhaps you never attended premarital counseling and didn’t realize how much your views on marriage differed until after the wedding. You might not be on the same page with your spouse about concerns such as how to raise children, handle the finances, or split up the domestic duties. Although you may have been able to initially overlook these issues, they’re hard to ignore now that they’ve caught up with you. And if you have kids, you might feel guilty about the strain your discord is putting on them. There is so much at stake if you can’t figure out how to save your marriage.
Fortunately, marriage counseling can provide research-based therapy to help mend your relationship. With the support of a therapist, you will learn how to solve the problems within your marriage and restore a deep bond.
We All Face Numerous Challenges In Marriage
The commitment of marriage is a tall order to fulfill. Although our rom-com culture often depicts getting married as the pinnacle of a relationship, it’s really just the beginning. After the wedding bells have stopped ringing, there are many obstacles we must overcome to keep our marriage healthy and happy.
The challenges of co-parenting, managing finances, and running a household with a life partner is never easy—even when it’s with someone you love deeply. And when other issues arise, whether it’s mismatched desire levels, leading parallel lives apart from each other, or not liking each other’s friends, we may begin to grow apart.
The Promise Of “Happily Ever After” Sometimes Leads Us Astray
Unfortunately, it’s easy for us to get caught up in the fantasy of “happily ever after” that is perpetuated in books, TV, movies, and social media. In our haste to get engaged and plan a fabulous wedding, we may gloss over the important step of slowing down long enough to hash out the nuts-and-bolts practicalities that a long-term committed relationship entails.
Even though everything may look perfect on our social media, in reality, we’re struggling and feel broken. Because we were never taught the skills to work through conflict, we may either overreact or run away, each of which can cause disconnection in our relationship. And if we’re pulled in many different directions, including our work, kids, or extended family, these obligations can make it harder for us to focus on our marriage.
Everyone goes through rough patches in their marriage, but it doesn’t have to be permanent. With marriage therapy, you and your partner can learn meaningful ways to rediscover connection and closeness. And if intimacy issues have reached a point where you’re considering separation and divorce, our marriage counseling services can help bring you back from the brink.
Marriage Counseling Can Teach You How To Reconnect As A Couple
Therapy gives you a safe space to explore the disconnect in your relationship. Working with an unbiased and non-judgmental third party, you can openly discuss the damage that has been done and learn to be vulnerable with each other to create a deeper connection.

What To Expect In Sessions
In ongoing sessions, you will learn to identify the negative behavioral cycles that lead to conflict and misunderstanding. By identifying these cycles that you may think neither of you can control, you will realize that not only can they be controlled but they can also be replaced with more positive forms of interaction.
Once you recognize you are about to embark on the “dance” of disconnection, you can learn to stop turning away from each other and, instead, lean into the relationship. And once you each discover how to communicate more effectively with each other, you’ll be able to better regulate your emotions and become more vulnerable with one another.
The Modalities We Use For Marriage Counseling
If you both want to save your marriage, there is hope. With help and support, you can have the relationship you have always dreamed about and feel like you’re on the same team again. Many couples tell us that they feel closer after marital counseling than ever before—even when they were first falling in love.
