Creating and maintaining a happy, healthy marriage can be a difficult job. With the demands of work and family, finances and children, people can lose track of the attraction that first drew them together. They can still love each other, but not know how to live together happily.
There is no such thing as one “bad” person in a marriage. Without exception, both partners contribute to the problems in the relationship. Our counselors know this and don’t seek to establish blame, but try instead to help couples learn how to handle the conflicts threatening their relationships.
Unresolved conflict eats at the fabric of committed relationships, sometimes allowing outside influences to intrude into the weakened union. Couples fight over money, children, sex, in-laws and religion, to name the top five. They may have long-term conflicts over specific behaviors or a situation may suddenly erupt and disrupt the relationship.
Communication can be blocked. Sometimes people have a hard time identifying their feelings, much less telling them to their partners. Anger, disappointment, and loneliness are difficult feelings to handle. Our counselors are trained to help work through couple conflicts. If couples are committed to the relationship, resolution can be achieved regardless of the conflict.
