You’re looking for couples counseling to learn the tools necessary to have a healthy relationship.
Marriage Counseling or Couples THERAPY Might Be the Answer
At some point in a relationship, almost every couple experiences conflict. It’s normal. In fact, a healthy relationship or marriage is marked by a couple’s ability to cope with these challenges and communicate in an open and honest way. Sometimes, that is easier said than done. Especially, when the stress of life has already made you feel “on edge.” Couples who react to conflict by withdrawing, ignoring, insulting, or yelling at each other may need some additional support in order to have a healthy relationship. Maybe, you’re considering breaking up, separating from, or divorcing your spouse. You’ve been hurt one too many times and you don’t know if your relationship is fixable.
Or, perhaps you already have a pretty solid relationship. You respect and value your partner. Maybe, you’re ready to take the next step and get married. But, you’re looking for couples counseling and support to prevent the conflict and challenges that often lead to divorce. All of these situations and challenges are normal and manageable by learning the tools necessary to have a happy relationship in couples counseling. At Catalyss Counseling, we help couples in all stages of a relationship. This includes couples who are dating, considering marriage, moving in together, engaged, married, separated, or divorce.
Common issues couples experience that brings you to couples therapy or marriage counseling:
Unhappiness or a lack of fulfillment in a relationship
Poor conflict management
Lack of sex or sexual dissatisfaction
Lack of attention
Concerns surrounding finances
The decision to start a family
Issues with in-laws
Blending families, cultures, or religions
Mental health concerns and/or substance use
Infidelity and trust issues
As therapists, I assure you we’ve helped couples overcome all these issues and more. We know it may feel daunting to seek help from a therapist because you’re worried they’ll judge you. But let me assure you, no one will tell you “you’re wrong” or ask you to abandon your values. The primary goal of couples counseling is to help partners rebuild their relationships, learn communication strategies, and recall why you fell in love with each other in the first place. Married couples, dating couples, and people in non-conventional relationships can benefit from therapy here. Our couples therapist will use the Gottman Method to help couples thrive at whatever stage of a relationship they’re in.
Common Questions about Couples therapy and Marriage Counseling
Can we start couples counseling while dating?
YES! Absolutely. This can help set you for success, in whatever stage of a relationship you are in. Things might feel great right now, or maybe you’ve started to notice problems. Perhaps, you have been arguing with your partner. You love them but just can’t deal with it anymore. You can’t move forward in your relationship unless something changes. Couples therapy for couples who are dating can help you build a solid foundation for a happy relationship. You can deal with the arguments and conflicts that are holding you back so you can move forward with confidence.
Recently Engaged? Congratulations! Consider Premarital Counseling
Statistics show that couples who had some form of premarital counseling report 30% more markers of marital satisfaction. As counselors who deal with marital unhappiness all the time, we can assure you that learning more about each other and talking about things that frequently cause issues in marriage during premarital counseling really lays the foundation for a healthy and happy marriage and lasting love.
Affair Recovery Counseling
An affair can rock a marriage or relationship and changes everything. Now, you have to decide the fate of your relationship. Do you stay or do you go? How do you learn to trust your partner again? Affair recovery counseling can help you determine what to do in your relationship if you’re unsure. It can also help you rebuild and strengthen your current relationship so you can move forward as a couple in a healthy way.
Counseling for Divorce Discernment in Colorado
Perhaps you’ve finally reached your breaking point. But, you’re not sure if leaving your spouse is the right move. In this case, divorce discernment counseling can help you determine if you should stay or go. This relatively fast form of counseling is done individually and will leave you prepared for the next step. If you determine that your relationship is not salvageable then your therapist can help you separate with dignity so you can embrace what the future holds.
Divorce and Co-Parent Counseling
Couples counseling can help a couple separate in a peaceful way. Although divorce is always painful, counseling can help you separate in the least emotionally taxing way possible. It can also save you from spending hours of time and lots of money on ugly litigation and excessive lawyer fees. Co-Parent counseling can help a divorced couple learn to communicate effectively and work together to ensure their child/children’s needs are being heard and met.
