Are you struggling in your marriage? Do you feel like you’ve had years of not hearing one another, communication issues, and that you and your partner are just not on the same page? You’re not alone, many couples have rough patches that seem to have no end in sight. The good news is, if you’re willing to put in the work, help is available to save your marriage. We offer effective marriage counseling and couples therapy in-person and online in North Carolina.
How did we get here?
There are many reasons why marriages become rocky and lose the feeling of joy they once brought. Communication problems play a huge factor in arguing, loss of trust, and feelings of betrayal. This can manifest itself in infidelity, affairs, keeping secrets, and the general feeling of not being understood or known by your partner.
Modern married life and the stresses that come with parenting, work, and financial security would put enormous pressure on any couple. It’s important not to judge yourself for how you got here, but to open up to the possibility of change in the right environment.
You will learn new, viable ways to communicate and new tools to build your relationship and keep it strong. It is possible to revitalize your marriage and start feeling in love with your partner again.
In therapy, we won’t beat around the bush. Learning how to directly address your issues and focusing on strategies that work will allow your partnership skills to grow. Our practitioners provide a space in which we will understand your story and experience, and then get down to business. Together, we will learn:
- Communication skills — each person experiences and perceives life differently
- Relationship styles to get you out of bad habits
- Respect for your partner and their needs
- Trusting in your partner again
- How to recognize your strengths and weaknesses, and how to support one another. One person can use their strengths to help their partner with what they find difficult.
Be open to discovery
When we’ve been with someone for a long time, we can forget that we’ve changed over time. Sometimes, we overlook self-discovery because we’re afraid of change in both ourselves and our partners. The truth is, is that learning how to understand who you are in your relationship today, and who your partner is, can allow you to open yourself up to mutual respect and understanding.
If instead of discussing a topic or an issue, you end up fighting about it, or if you feel that you aren’t being heard by your partner, chances are that you both could use some help learning to hear each other in both stressful and non-stressful situations.
