Couples Counseling Can Help

You can have the loving, committed, and healthy relationship you long for.

When you are in a marriage or relationship that isn’t working, you feel alone and disconnected.

You’re stuck on a roller coaster of ups and downs, and you can’t see a way off. We help couples work through gridlock and rebuild connections for a future of happiness.

Perhaps you feel constantly criticized, like you can’t do anything right. It might be hard to remember the last time you were intimate with your partner.

Has your partner broken your trust through betrayal or infidelity? Or, are you fearful your partner will leave you?

If you wish you could feel close and connected to your partner again, then marriage counseling can help. It is tough for couples to change negative patterns of relating on their own. Our experienced couple’s counselors help couples or spouses stop their negative cycles of blame and helps them learn new ways to communicate

  • Need to strengthen their relationship during loss or tough life transitions
  • Are struggling with illness, injury, or other crises
  • Struggle to navigate values, religious, cultural, or family differences
  • Are recovering from an affair
  • Feel bored and unsure they want to continue the relationship
  • Couples considering divorce or separation
  • People who want a closer, healthier relationship
  • Couples preparing for marriage or building a life together

Benefits of Marriage Counseling

You and your partner can learn to say what you need, without criticizing or blaming. You feel empowered to express your feelings instead of holding them in till you explode.

In the day to day routine of life, it’s easy to lose sight of who you are. Therapy helps you reconnect with your values, needs, and desires. You can enjoy being seen, understood, and loved for who you are.

Marriage counseling helps you explore your typical patterns of interacting in your relationship. From there, you learn tools to increase connection and interact in ways to build a loving relationship.

The slight distance that marriage counseling provides, helps you see the positive traits your partner has. Stepping out of the fight ring is a step to remembering what drew you together, and what qualities you still admire.

Especially if you and your partner have been through an affair, or hit a rough patch, marriage counseling can reignite hope for your future as a couple. Couples therapy helps couples process feelings of hurt, betrayal, and broken trust after infidelity. Through counseling, couples can move toward forgiveness, reconciliation, and rebuilding trust.

Begin Couples Counseling in The Woodlands, TX

Couples often find that over time, the passion and excitement that drew them together dulls or turns sour. New conflicts crop up, and once loving couples begin patterns of criticizing, defending or attacking. Fights over money, sex, chores, or parenting drown out the happy times.

Or, you may have just drifted apart and begun to feel more like roommates than lovers. You may parent together, but otherwise just exist in the same space. Affection is rare, and meaningful conversation has disappeared.

Whether distressed or distant, you find that your relationship is no longer giving you the support, love, and intimacy you crave.

If the sparkle has left your relationship, it can be tough to have hope. Many couples stay in disappointing relationships for years before reaching out for help. 

Don’t wait if you think your marriage is in trouble; start now before it’s too late. The investment in marriage counseling will help you handle challenges and heal hurts. Happy marriages are built with purpose and care.

Love relationships have immense power to harm through intense emotional pain, or to heal us through safety, value, and appreciation. If your bond with your partner has been disrupted, you may be feeling fear, insecurity, or anger. This can cause you or your partner to engage unhealthy patterns in response like shutting down, reacting angrily, or ignoring. Over time, these patterns become habits that can be difficult to change on your own.
