What is Couples Counseling?
Couples Counseling also referred to as marriage counseling or relationship counseling helps partners to identify and resolve conflicts that occur in their relationship over time. It is an effective way to improve or enhance your relationship. In some cases, it can help people make the difficult decision to end a relationship but in the healthiest possible way. Couples Counseling is the time and place to explore your relationship with an objective, impartial and highly trained licensed professional.
Who Should Seek Couples Counseling?
All relationships go through difficult times. But if you find that these conflicts continue on without any resolution it is time to reach out to a couples counselor. Studies show that couples typically wait 6 years before reaching out for help. The quicker you reach out for help, the easier it will be for your couples therapist to help. It is never too early to start creating your ideal relationship!
