Relationships & Couples Counseling
Being “coupled” can bring both welcome benefits as well as overwhelming challenges. Life stresses and worries about children, finances, sexuality, career issues, health and other matters can frequently present additional distress. At times, it can be downright confusing to figure out where to start solving problems or to know which issues are yours versus your mates. At these times, anger, confusion, sadness, loneliness, and a multitude of other feelings can sometimes lead to behavior which is further hurtful to the relationship. Thus, a destructive cycle can begin between two previously loving parties. Like parenting, being part of a couple does not come with a how-to manual. Information and support must be gathered and utilized in reasonable steps to “put together” a satisfying relationship.
If you would like help figuring out how to resolve problems in your relationship without fighting or fleeing, counseling can help. Several providers at In Touch Counseling Services® work by looking at emotions, as well as behavioral patterns (including destructive ones) and their origins so that these may be understood. With understanding comes motivation to change. Identifying your partner’s perspective and behavior motivators is also important to approach things proactively and respectively. We will provide the neutrality, confidentiality, trained feedback, and skill development materials necessary to help you make progress in your relationship.
