Whether you’re married or simply in a committed partnership, there will be times when differences in opinions lead to arguments — possibly even threatening your relationship.
Couples counseling can help.
Tired of having the same arguments without resolution? Counseling can uncover what’s beneath the bickering.
Feel like you just don’t understand each other? Counseling can improve your communication.
Is your relationship pretty perfect? Counseling can help keep it that way.
Have questions? We understand. Here are a few of the most common:
Couples counseling is a safe, nonjudgmental space for you and your partner to learn more about each other and discuss all aspects of your relationship — the good parts, the bad parts, and everything in between. Relationship counseling is often used to help couples deal with conflict, but you don’t need to be in a rocky relationship to reap the benefits of couples therapy. Even strong relationships can benefit from the insights gained at couples counseling to help keep them that way.
Each counselor at North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy takes a personalized approach to your unique relationship. Uncovering your relationship can lead to major breakthroughs, but it can be uncomfortable — you and your partner might feel angry, sad, or frustrated while discussing certain issues. Your couples therapist is there with you through the entire journey acting as a guide. They have the education and experience necessary to lead you through difficult emotions to find effective solutions.
Relationship counseling helps couples dealing with issues around:
- Addiction to drugs or alcohol
- Frequent arguing
- Emotional distance
No matter your relationship struggles, the team at North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy has the experience, compassion, and insight to help you work through the problem.
It’s always good to work on your relationship, but there are times when you might not have the experience or distance necessary to address certain problems. Often, couples wait too long before searching for professional help to save their relationship . Unfortunately, the longer they wait, the harder a relationship can be to repair. Of course, even the most damaged relationship can be fixed — it just makes for more intensive work.
North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy has some of the top relationship counselors in the New York City area. We’re ready to provide the advice and neutral insight needed to handle even the most difficult relationship issues.
First, realize that relationship counseling takes two — both you and your partner must want to fix your relationship before beginning. If one of you isn’t fully invested in working on your relationship, the therapy process won’t be as successful.
It’s also important to know what you want to get out of couples therapy. Before beginning, take some time with your partner to write down some attainable goals and where you want to see your relationship in the future.
Make sure you are ready to speak openly and honestly. Relationship counseling is not the place to hide your past or what you feel. But also realize that being open and honest can be tough. Be prepared to go through a range of turbulent emotions with your partner. No matter what comes up, your North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy counselor will be there to lead you to positive outcomes.
Understand that it is normal to be nervous before your first couples therapy session. But remember, you are in good hands. Our therapists have plenty of experience, and the office is warm and welcoming.
