Your marriage (or relationship) has the potential to create deep meaning, joy and contentment in your life…
…which means when your relationship isn’t working, when the pain of conflict and disconnection take over, it can feel like the very foundation beneath you is crumbling.
This emotional upheaval can be overwhelming — but there is hope.
Sometimes the most courageous thing you can do is ask for help.
Marriage & Couples Counseling in Georgetown, TX
Research shows that couples counseling can be helpful for a wide range of marital or relationship problems.
Couples who come to see me are often struggling with one or more of the following:
⇒ Breakdowns in communication — increasingly, you can’t seem to agree on any issue or find a mutually satisfying compromise;
⇒ Increasingly your discussions lead to frustration, anger and/or hurt feelings;
⇒ Defensiveness has become the norm (the openness that effective communication requires has been replaced with finger-pointing, snide comments, hostility or emotional disengagement/withdrawal);
⇒ The pain of loneliness has replaced the feeling of emotional closeness;
⇒ You’re tired of hearing “no” whenever you try to initiate sex — you’re feeling rejected or undesired by your partner due to sexual incompatibilities;
⇒ Repeated attempts to engage your spouse/partner go nowhere;
⇒ You are reeling from the shock and painful aftermath of a betrayal (such as an emotional and/or physical affair). Or perhaps you and your spouse/partner need help with the post-affair rebuilding process.
The above are just some of the reasons why couples seek counseling.
