Relationship Counseling for individuals in Colorado
You struggle in relationships. This has caused you to get hurt more often than you probably want to admit. Perhaps you’ve told yourself “it’s just bad luck” and tried to convince yourself that you’re choosing the wrong partner, but there’s a small part of yourself that wonders if there’s more to it than that?
Perhaps, your relationship struggles are causing you to experience low self-esteem and self-doubt. You 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.
Ultimately, you long for the type of connection others have. You want to find that special someone to build a life with, 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 individual relationship counseling.
Who benefits from individual 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 individual relationship counseling:
History of bad relationship patterns: multiple break-ups, divorce or separation, serial dating
Currently experiencing a relationship that does not bring you happiness
Intense emotional reactions to conflict
Being emotionally guarded
Pushing partner away
Volatile relationships with frequent arguments and conflict
Choosing a partner/partners that make you feel poorly about yourself
Jumping in too quickly in relationships (coming on too strong)
Trauma from past relationships
Feeling alone in a current relationship
Having few close friends
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 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 during individual therapy.
Our Approach to Individual Relationship Counseling:
We approach individual relationship counseling much in the same way we approach other counseling services that we offer. We begin by building a relationship with you. 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.
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 others authentically so you can build meaningful relationships with others. 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.

Treating relationship concerns through group counseling:
We offer group counseling for relationship issues! Even though individual relationship counseling 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
We offer several groups that are appropriate for relationship concerns. For information about all the groups that Catalyss Counseling offers, head to our Group Counseling webpage.
