Relationships are hard.
Whether you are dating, newly married or have been married for a long time, you may find you are not where you expected you would be. Increased arguments or feeling more disconnected can start to eat away at your relationship. You may find your initial emotions of butterflies and affection have lessened and you are struggling to stay engaged. You may have experienced betrayal and are having trouble rebuilding trust and healing the hurt.
Relationship Counseling can help.
An objective, non-judgemental third party can provide a listening ear. It can help you to feel heard, and help come to a mutual place of setting goals to repair your relationship. New skills can help improve communication. Learning new ways to work through conflict around common arguments can provide resolution, most often related to money, sex, parenting or your household. Choosing to love one another and finding a place of forgiveness can heal past hurts and help you start to move forward.
You’ve probably heard of couples who have “tried counseling and it only made things worse”. I encourage you to try it. Try to make it work. Even if this is the last step before separation or divorce, it is still worth trying.
Made to Thrive also provides pre-marital counseling. Putting in the work before the marriage starts can make a big difference.
If you’re willing to put in the work, Made to Thrive is here to help.
