Marriage Counseling/Therapy

What is Marriage Counseling?

Marriage counseling or couples counseling is an opportunity to work with your partner on issues that may be affecting your relationship. Couples work towards a peaceful and intimate relationship. Couples counseling can also be for divorced couples or couples going through divorce/separation, as navigating these life circumstances can be difficult. Couples counseling can be used for increased communication and resolution of conflict in any situation.

Treatment Approach for Marriage Counseling

Each marriage is different and each couple experiences different issues. Your counselor will first help you identify your common goals and issues you would like to address. Some things you may focus on communication skills, conflict resolution, intimacy, parenting, extended families and past hurts. Your counselor will serve as a guide during these discussions, helping you create productive conversations.

Throughout your sessions, counselors sometimes see you individually or together. This is to provide the client more time to discuss individual issues that might be affecting the relationship. This will be determined based on the needs of the specific couple. Therapists are a neutral party and always work toward helping the needs of the couple by providing an outside perspective.

Benefits of Marriage Counseling

  • Improved communication skills
  • Resolution to conflict
  • New perspective
  • Increased intimacy

Here are some things our therapists have to say on Marriage counseling sessions.

Written by Danielle Linders, NCC, LPC, LCDC

Marriage and family therapy is a journey that we are permitted to join our patients on. I look at the session as a dance. It is a balancing act to make sure that all present feel heard and understood. Most issues that are addressed in session are: communication (I language, fair fighting rules, active and reflective listening), love languages, discovering who you are as an individual and couple, parenting, among other topics.

I do not have an agenda when I come into a session. I allow the couple to express topics of importance and then provide space for each patient to feel heard. I usually ask questions for several modalities to see which would be the best for the couple.
