How is your relationship?

Do you feel emotionally or physically out of tune with your partner? Are you able to communicate and come to compromises about how you spend your time, your energy and your financial resources? Or do these things seem to deepen the wedge between you with each passing day? Have you learned how to talk about the important things without inciting anger or shutting down? 

The truth is, all relationships have issues and conflict. Whether you're dealing with a new or established relationship, there are bound to be challenges that arise. These can include communication issues, conflicts over money, differing life goals, or simply growing apart over time. These challenges can be particularly difficult to navigate without support, leading to feelings of frustration, disappointment, or even despair. 

Couples counseling can help!

All couples can benefit from counseling to reduce conflict and stress, even ones that are generally doing well. Couples counseling can provide a range of benefits, including improved communication, a deeper understanding of each other's needs, and strategies for working through conflicts in a healthy and constructive way.

One of the key benefits of couples counseling is that it provides a safe and non-judgmental space for couples to explore their issues. The therapist acts as a neutral third party, helping couples to navigate their challenges without taking sides or imposing their own values or beliefs. This can be particularly helpful for couples who are struggling to communicate effectively or who are dealing with complex emotions or relationship dynamics.

When you need some extra support in your relationship, turn to the experts in couples counseling.

Is couples counseling right for us?

If you're experiencing challenges in your relationship that are impacting your happiness and well-being, couples counseling may be a good option for you. Our therapists will work with you and your partner to determine whether couples counseling is the right fit for your needs.

Our couples counseling is not only for a stressed relationship from a particular issue, but also is beneficial during times of transition. Moving, starting a family, and other circumstances are disruptive to the rhythm of a relationship. Working with our counselors can ease the road through the transition in a collaborative, non-judgmental environment.

Couples counseling is available in-person at one of our three Chicago locations or online!
