How Can Couples Therapy and Relationship Counseling Help?

Relationship counseling can help couples recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through counseling, couples can learn new communication skills to understand one another’s perspectives better while also learning how to manage differences in a healthy way. Our couples therapy aims to help you strengthen your relationship by developing healthier communication and conflict resolution patterns. 

Signs Your Relationship Might Need Help

Some signs that your marriage or relationship needs help are: 

  • You and your spouse or partner don’t feel connected anymore, or there is a sense of distance in your relationship 
  • You and your spouse or partner are frequently fighting and may have developed a seemingly endless cycle of criticism, conflict, and withdrawal followed by making up 
  • You no longer trust your spouse or partner due to deceit, infidelity, or an addictive behavior 
  • You don’t feel like your needs are being met by your spouse or partner 
  • You are contemplating divorce

If you are thinking that you might need help with your relationship, you most likely need it. Studies indicate that most couples do not seek help until six to seven years after the onset of difficulties, often placing the continuation of the relationship in significant peril.  

Our Marriage Counseling at New Directions Mental Health

We offer comprehensive and compassionate marriage counseling services to help couples of all types find ways to reconnect with one another, communicate better, resolve conflicts, and foster healthier relationships. Our experienced team of therapists is dedicated to providing you with the mental health therapies you need. We understand that every relationship is unique, and we strive to create an individualized plan for each couple that will address their specific needs. 

Each partner in a marriage or relationship has the challenging task of balancing three realities: 

  • Your perceptions, feelings, needs, and desires 
  • Your partner’s perceptions, feelings, needs, and desires 
  • The needs of the relationship

Integrating these three dimensions is what results in a sense of emotional connection. Significant problems develop when a couple’s sense of emotional closeness and connection becomes compromised.   

What Can Harm the Core Ingredients of Relationships?

A sense of closeness to your spouse or partner, along with a sense of emotional and physical security, is essential to a healthy, intimate relationship. Many factors can have a negative or harmful effect on these core ingredients, including:

  • Infidelity or deceit 
  • Domestic violence 
  • Insufficient relationship skills 
  • The negative effect of painful experiences in past relationships or marriages 
  • The effects of stress from work, children, finances, etc. 
  • Physical or mental health challenges for one or both partners, including addictions 
  • Relationship difficulties with parents or in-laws

The aims of couples therapy at our practice include resolving painful feelings of hurt and anger, moving beyond emotional blocks to increased intimacy, addressing individual psychological challenges contributing to the relationship struggles, and developing relationship skills. We are committed to helping couples cultivate a healthy, strong relationship based on trust, respect, and emotional connection.
