Relationships are challenging. No relationship is perfect 100 percent of the time.
Signs that couples counseling may be helpful:
-Focusing on each other's flaws, or what the other person is NOT doing, rather than what they are
-Feelings of resentment in the relationship
-Feelings of hurt, jealousy, anger, etc.
-Feeling distant or disconnected from one another
-Joint experience of a loss or trauma
-Infidelity or disloyalty in the relationship
-Difficulty navigating a change in relationship status
-Introduction of new stressors that challenge the relationship (i.e. birth of a child, taking on caretaking of a parent, a move to a new location)
-Desire to deepen your understanding of one another and build a stronger bond
Here at Healing & Growth Counseling, we are focused on helping couples to openly explore their thoughts and feelings with one another in a safe and calm environment. Utilizing healthy communication skills, couples can have deeper conversation about their concerns and support one another as they search for root causes to current issues and work through them. Couples may work on learning and implementing healthier ways of communicating and coping in their daily lives, as well as engaging in activities that may help them to reconnect and deepen their relationship.
Couples counseling can also be helpful to a couple who may be ending their romantic relationship, however are choosing to co-parent their children. The couple can work on setting healthy boundaries in the relationship and communicating effectively and in a way that is comfortable for both parties and the children. They can use the counseling sessions as a way to build a new foundation in the changed relationship.
