Marriage counseling

Families are comprised of relationships. Learn how to navigate them in a better, more loving way with convenient online therapy.

What is marriage counseling?

Living alongside other people is one of the most difficult parts of life. When it comes to marriage and family, it’s perfectly normal for things to go wrong – and perfectly normal to ask for help to make them right again.

Many couples avoid therapy because it sounds uncomfortable to shed light on issues we’d rather not talk about. But the truth is, counseling can be incredibly restorative for our relationships. That’s because it encourages and equips us to respond more wisely to the problems that will inevitably arise. And it can save us years of the passive aggression and low-level squabbles that wear away at our relationships.

What are the common types of relationship issues?

Our reactions are often the result of engrained responses from a troubled past. This can be very tricky emotional territory, and we shouldn’t be ashamed about the need for assistance in navigating it. Things can become more complicated when the following issues are involved:

Marital conflict
Sexual dysfunction
Parent-child conflict
Parent-child conflict
Taking care of elders
Adolescent and teen behavioral problems

Can therapy help with family and marriage problems?

Family and marriage therapy is a type of psychotherapy that’s designed to address family members’ behaviors and how they affect each person individually, as well as the entire family. It teaches us skills that are essential to maintaining a happy household and strong family bonds, such as:
Negotiating successfully, with less conflict
Listening to others and explaining yourself more effectively
Incorporating real, everyday solutions

Families are comprised of relationships, and therapy is a place where we can learn to navigate them in a better, more loving way. In therapy, you will be given the opportunity to clearly identify what you need to work on. It gives you a safe space to have essential conversations, without devolving into arguing or cynicism. Therapists are skilled at getting to the heart of what’s bothering you. This can help you feel less pessimistic about trying to feel understood and breathe new life into your family dynamics. Remember that your family members are not your enemies, they may just be lacking the skills they need to communicate their needs.
