  • Can Marriage Counseling Really Help Your Relationship?

    Many of my clients come to see me and tell me their relationship is in such bad shape they don’t know where to begin to fix it. They ask me can this marriage be saved? I tell them, while I wish I had a magic wand and could wave it over them and make things instantly better, that is simply not the case. All marriages take work, but I do know that even the most challenging marriages have the potential for lasting positive change.
    We’ll discuss your concerns together and explore negative patterns that have led to marital distress.  With objective guidance, couples counseling can help you find your way to a happier and more satisfying life and relationship.

    If you and your spouse are experiencing difficulties, here are some reasons why you should give marriage counseling a try:

    Identifying Patterns

    One of the biggest benefits of seeking counseling is having help seeing negative behavioral patterns, whether those patterns are yours as individuals and/or as a couple. Healing can only begin once patterns have been recognized.

    Impartial Advice

    A therapist is not like a friend or family member who is going to take sides and hand out potentially harmful advice. Marriage counselors have a track record of dealing with all sorts of marital issues and want to understand what’s going on so they can offer the best strategies for healing.

    A Safe Space

    Marriage counseling offers both spouses a safe space to be completely open and honest with their feelings. If not delivered in the right space, complete honesty can have adverse effects. Counseling offers a safe environment in which no one is ever judged.

    A Place to Rebuild Trust

    Trust is the bedrock of every relationship. But when that trust is broken, as it is through infidelity, it is hard to put the pieces back together. Marriage counselors have years of experience dealing with issues of infidelity. Counseling explores different ways to rebuild trust, such as communication, one step at a time.

    Dealing With Toxic Emotions

    Did you know that trapped toxic emotions are one of the main reasons marriages break down? When you have feelings of anger, resentment, and frustration locked deep inside you, they fester there and make matters worse. Marriage counseling offers the space and opportunity to let these emotions out in healthy, respectful ways.


    If you and your partner are struggling with relationship or marital conflict, marriage counseling has been proven to be very successful in finding the love and marital satisfaction you both deserve.
