San Diego Couples Counseling
Many couples do not communicate effectively, and experience ongoing issues such as repetitive arguing and feelings of distance, resentment, or dissatisfaction with one another. Additionally, issues such as illness, infidelity, and general communication problems can put a strain on your relationship, causing you to feel very distant from one another.
This can have detrimental effects on your relationship, as it may cause disinterest in continuing to pursue an emotional and physical bond between one another. As an experienced counselor, my Marriage, Pre Marital and Couples Counseling is based on the premise that problems between partners are best handled within the context of the couple’s relationship. This means that both partners attend therapy to discuss the issues at hand with a Counselor present. The Couples Counselor acts as a mediator, and is able to provide objective and constructive feedback directly to the couple.
I have over 36 years as a San Diego Couples Counseling professional. As a couples counselor I have helped hundreds of couples and marriages resolve their relationship issues and rekindle their spark.
During my San Diego Couples Counseling, PreMarital and Marriage Counseling sessions, each partner is given the chance to speak openly and freely about their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a safe, non-threatening environment. Typically, this type of therapy occurs once per week, and can last anywhere from several weeks to several months, depending on the severity of your concerns. Whether you are married or not, a Couples Counselor will help you and your partner to better understand one another and provide you with the tools to deal with future problems appropriately.
This will not only help you better understand each other, but it will also help rebuild, revive, and strengthen the bond between you. In fact, research outcomes on couples counseling suggest that by the end of therapy, 75% of couples are better off than couples who did not receive therapy (1). Overall, most couples will benefit from relationship therapy; however, these benefits can be experienced in different ways by each partner. With my assistance and clinical experience, I can help you and your partner reintegrate understanding, peace, and enjoyment in your relationship. If you are looking for marriage counselor or a therapist to help your relationship through a rough patch, please call or contact my San Diego office for a free couples counseling consultation. This is a great and free way to take the first step and see if counseling is the right choice for you.
