While we love being in love -- we also know intimate relationships take a lot of effort. The stresses of everyday life can put a huge strain on a relationship. Severe stressors may include resentment, intimacy issues, lack of trust, miscommunication, or infidelity. When problems go unresolved, one can feel helpless or have feelings of guilt or shame.
- Do you feel distant and disconnected in your relationship?
- Are you going around and around in your fights -- with nothing left but hurt feelings?
- Do you miss the old days when you and your partner felt more in love?
- Are your attempts to get closer feeling futile?
We often begin our relationships by handling the minor issues and misunderstandings. But, as time goes on, these issues can build up and become more serious rifts. This can lead to fighting more often or more harshly. Our closeness and sense of emotional safety can sometime erode.
Couples often seek couples or marriage counseling when the relationship is at a standstill, or if they are unsure whether or not the relationship is worth salvaging.
At Mill Creek Family Services, we understand how important intimate relationships are to our sense of well-being. We also know how challenging relationships can be. Drawing from current research on couples relationships and counseling, we will invite you into a process designed to promote intimacy and connection between you and your partner. Couples counseling allows couples to express themselves in a safe environment with a trusted and supportive professional.
With both partners communicating more effectively, relational conflicts can be alleviated, and you can feel more connected.
