Marriage & Couples Counseling

Do you want to let go of problematic patterns and feel emotionally connected to your spouse or partner again? Find out more about Marriage and Couples Counseling with Dr. Christine.

All relationships require work and all couples face challenges from time to time. Even simple, everyday stressors can put pressure on an intimate relationship, and larger sources of stress can threaten the stability of the relationship. However, as long as each partner is willing to address the problematic issues and participate in working out a solution, most relationship problems are manageable. But when problems are left unaddressed, tensions mount, bad habits develop, and the health and longevity of the relationship is threatened.

Signs that your relationship may be in trouble:

  • Arguments are repeated but not resolved.
  • You avoid discussing certain topics in order to avoid conflict.
  • You no longer support each other emotionally.
  • Your communication includes criticism and contempt.
  • You no longer share your innermost thoughts and feelings for fear of criticism.
  • You choose to spend less time together.
  • Anger and frustration over unresolved issues has turned into apathy and indifference.

 

However, couples can learn and practice healthier habits that strengthen a relationship, such as:

  • Responding to each other’s needs.
  • Connecting and supporting each other emotionally.
  • Quickly addressing and repairing small hurts and misunderstandings.
  • Perceiving yourselves as being on the same team.
  • Facing relationship fears together.
  • Communicating how much you mean to each other more often.
  • Communicating clearly but with kindness.
