Marriage Therapy Secret

I have heard it said: “You women! You always want to change men!” And, ok, maybe that is somewhat true. (Sorry, guys!) But marital therapy is most effective when both partners are willing to be individually responsible and accountable for the “cup of gasoline” they throw on their fire of conflict. After all, the only person we can change in marriage is ourselves.

5 Good Reasons For Marriage Counseling

When Is The Right Time To Seek Out Marriage Counseling?

The best time to begin marriage counseling is while dating someone seriously. I strongly advise against waiting until after saying “I do!” to discuss difficult issues (money, children, parenting styles, career goals, etc.) But if you’re already married and are struggling, this is the time to start!

There’s a saying “The only couples who don’t fight are the ones who aren’t talking.” Of course, it’s only normal that couples struggle. But when struggles become standoffs, it’s time to call me.

When To Wait To Start Marriage Counseling

Why wait? If there’s a problem you want resolved in your marriage, there’s no time like the present to tackle it.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Marriage Counseling Maryland

In my practice, the success of relationship therapy largely depends on the desire and willingness of the couple to resolve their difficult issues using compromise, willingness to change, and the strength of their commitment to one another.

The amount of sessions needed depends upon several factors, including the severity of the couple’s challenging times. Most couples attend therapy for a minimum of five sessions.

If your spouse won’t attend relationship counseling, come for yourself. Use the time to find healing for your own emotional issues and daily life stressors.

In my experience as a marriage therapist, most couples stay together after marriage counseling, unless there’s a critical reason to end the marriage.

Can marriage counseling help after an affair

Yes, marriage counseling can help tremendously after an affair and in unexpected ways.

In the rough patches of marriage, it may be difficult to remember why you chose one another, what brought you together, and what your goals are as a family. Turning to your faith to answer these questions not only brings you closer, but it can re-energize your faith, too.

I’m happy to understand your goals in divorcing well, be it co-parenting strategies or resolving remaining emotional issues.
