Couples Therapy Great Falls MD
If you and your partner are struggling to see eye-to-eye, it might be time to consider going to couples counseling. At Lindsey Hoskins & Associates, we know that couples counseling isn’t for everyone — but many couples do benefit from going to therapy at some point in their relationship. Our therapists have worked extensively with couples from all walks of life and we know that many people initially feel hesitant about going to a couples therapist in Great Falls MD. We want to make all of our clients (and potential clients) feel as comfortable as possible when making an appointment for couples therapy.
Is couples therapy right for me and my partner?
Again, couples counseling isn’t the perfect solution for everyone, but there are a few signs that you and partner may benefit from going to therapy sessions”
- You’re having trouble being physically intimate. The heart of the family is the relationship between you and your partner, but it’s easy to lose sight of this when life gets busy. A strong love life should consist of honest conversations, the ability to resolve conflicts, and maintaining an intimate emotional and physical connection. Couples counseling can help you connect more deeply with your partner.
- An emotional or physical affair has taken place. Infidelity is one of the most difficult problems to overcome in a relationship, but it’s certainly possible to do so. If you and your partner wish to try to save your relationship after one (or both) of you has had an affair, couples therapy can be very effective. If you wish to part ways, a therapist can help you do this peacefully.
- You rarely spend time with your partner. If you rarely spend time alone together, you might feel as though you and your partner are no longer connecting. The amount of time you spend together isn’t the most important thing; ensuring that you’re spending quality time together is what really matters.
- You are only staying together for your children. Many couples find that their relationship suffers after having children. Without addressing this, you might feel as though your children are the only thing you and your partner have in common. Although it’s a noble effort to stay together for your children, remember that having two peaceful and happy homes can sometimes be better than having one home filled with anger and resentment.
Additionally, many couples go to therapy sessions simply because they want to create a strong foundation for their relationship. All of these reasons are perfectly valid.
