Improve Your
Relationships

Relationship COunseling in Colorado

Are your relationship struggles are causing you to experience low self-esteem and self-doubt. You may begin to think, “maybe I’m the problem?” After all, relationships seem to come so easy to others, but you always seem to struggle. Over time, these feelings make you lose interest in even trying. Or, when you do try, you carefully guard your heart to avoid having it broken yet again. 

If you are part of a couple, when you face problems like arguing a lot, you might become frustrated or distant. Sometimes one person might not trust the other, or you might feel stuck in their relationship patterns. These problems can make couples feel unhappy and wanting to escape the conflict.

 

Further, adults in poly or ethical non-monogamy relationships might face challenges like jealousy, communication issues, or difficulty balancing multiple partners. Sometimes you might feel unsure about your feelings or how to make the relationships work. These struggles can cause stress and sadness, and even wondering if the relationship is worth it.

 

Ultimately, you and/or your partner(s) long for the type of connection others have. You want to build a life together, but you aren’t sure where to begin. Maybe, you’ve tried to talk to your friends or family about your struggles only to walk away feeling more frustrated than before. You need answers, guidance, and real tools to help you form the kind of meaningful relationships you desire. 

You need relationship counseling. If you are looking for couples therapy or other relationship counseling, see our Couples Counseling page also.

Who benefits from relationship counseling:

Perhaps, some of the things written above resonate with you, but you’re still not sure if counseling is the answer to your relationship problems. We understand. So, we wanted to share with you some common reasons why adults begin relationship counseling:

  • History of unhealthy relationships

  • Currently, you're in a relationship that doesn't make you happy

  • You feel strong emotions when there's a disagreement

  • A tendency to push your partner(s) away

  • Your relationships often have lots of arguments and fights

  • Communication or trust issues

  • Concerns with intimacy or infidelity

  • You have different life goals than your partner(s)

  • Something bad that happened in your childhood that still affects you

  • Feeling lonely in your current relationship

  • Struggling with feelings of jealousy

Dating is hard

 

First of all, know you’re not alone. In fact, recent research shows that 50% of US adults say that dating has gotten harder in the past ten years. Even with the rise of online dating apps, more and more Americans are saying that it’s tough to find someone to date and build a meaningful connection with. The commercials for popular dating apps and popular media outlets make it seem so easy, but it’s not. So, if you’re struggling that’s okay

As therapists, we help many adults in Colorado overcome dating struggles or their emotions surrounding relationships and intimacy in counseling. In fact, I would say that it’s one of the most common things we help clients with.

Then, we will discuss how you can show up and be more present in your current relationships. We will also share tips to improve your communication as that is often where relationship problems originate. And if you tend to find yourself having big emotional reactions in your relationships, we will discuss ways you can temper those tendencies. We do all of this to help you build a foundation for healthy relationships to blossom. 

 

After counseling, it is our hope that you will feel more comfortable connecting with your partner and others authentically so you can build meaningful relationships. Ultimately, we want you to feel comfortable taking a risk and putting yourself out there in a relationship and have the tools needed to grow and nurture a relationship.

Our Approach to Relationship Counseling:

We approach relationship counseling much in the same way we approach other counseling services that we offer. We begin by building a relationship with you and your partner(s). This means we want to get to know more about you and the issues that are bringing you to counseling. We want you to feel like this is a safe spot to discuss whatever is on your mind. Then, we will help you determine how past pain and struggles may be impacting your current relationship success. We will unpack these challenges and help you find a path forward

Treating relationship concerns through group counseling:

We offer group counseling for relationship issues! Even though relationship counseling or couples therapy is often the more popular treatment, research shows that group therapy works even better for treating relationship concerns. Here are some of the benefits of group counseling for relationships:

  • Connect with others in a safe, healthy group atmosphere

  • Opportunity to learn about yourself and how others experience you

  • Offers a place to practice for stressful real-life relationships

  • Provides a built-in support system and other perspectives

  • More cost-effective than individual therapy
