Is your marriage in trouble?
If so, then you’re in the right place.
Most people desire a satisfying marriage that lasts a lifetime. Yet couples marrying today have a 50% chance of getting divorced.
Many couples that do not divorce wind up staying together, but remain unhappy and unfulfilled for years.
The damaging effects of destructive marital conflict and divorce on spouses and children include economic problems, medical problems, spiritual and mental health problems.
Can couples learn how to avoid the pitfalls, and learn to deepen and maintain love for a lifetime? Yes, if they work at it!
The purpose of marital counseling at our Grand Junction Counseling Centers is to teach couples skills for a great marriage. The fact is that most of us didn’t learn relationship skills in a direct manner from qualified sources.
Most of us simply picked up bits of information from people who had good intentions, but lacked expertise.
What happens during Marriage counseling?
The bottom line about any marriage that is having problems, is that needs are not being met.
Your Counselor will teach you how to meet each other’s deepest needs, how to resolve past hurts, how to stop damaging conflicts and how to restore those original loving feelings.
Towards the end of your session, you and your Counselor will create a specific Action Plan that can immediately start turning things around.
What if my spouse doesn’t want to participate?
Although it is most ideal when both are committed to making changes in the Marriage–significant changes can be made even if therapy is done with only one person.
Many times, marriage Counseling starts out as Individual Counseling and after a little while, the other person will want to participate.
We are considering divorce, can you still help?
Yes! There is reason to hope regardless of what has happened in your past–or for how long.
These are just a few areas often covered in Relationship Counseling:
- stopping hurtful conflict
