Relational Therapy: Couples’ & Marriage Counseling Services
Do you feel that you and your partner are drifting apart?
Do you feel stuck in patterns of behavior that you know need to change?
Are you wondering if separation or divorce are your only answers?
At A New Hope Therapy Center, we offer comprehensive and compassionate couples’ therapy services that enable you to improve your relationships.
What is Relational Therapy?
Also known as couples’ therapy or marriage counseling, relational therapy is time set aside for you and your partner to work on improving your relationship.
With the support and guidance of a therapist, you’ll learn to communicate better, improve your intimacy, and resolve your differences in a healthy way.
It’s not uncommon for relationships to lose their "spark" as they progress and face stress. Let us empower you to reclaim that relationship you fell for!
Who Can Benefit from Relational Therapy?
Relational therapy is typical for couples who have experienced stress to their relationship that’s difficult to manage, including (but not limited to):
Blended & step-families
Life transitions, such as Unemployment & Retirement
Our therapists work with any couple, regardless of where they are in their relationship or how long they’ve been together. In addition to couples’ counseling, we offer premarital counseling, marriage counseling, and co-parenting lessons for separated or divorced couples.
Additionally, our relationship counselors love working with all types of couples, including straight, non-binary, and LGBTQ+ couples.
What are the Goals of Relational Therapy?
Our relational counselors equip you to improve communication, manage stress, and resolve conflict. With the help of your therapist, you and your partner each identify what you’d like to improve in your relationship, then set goals around those changes.
Does Marriage Counseling End in Divorce?
Not always. As mentioned above, our marriage counselors work towards the goals that you and your partner identify. Working from a place of compassion and understanding, we provide the skills and tools to empower you to make your own difficult decisions.
A therapist should never direct you to choose any one option over another. Instead, they guide and support you in making the best decision for yourself and your relationship.
Divorce can be an option, but only if you believe it to be the best option for yourself. Our goal is to enable you to make a thoughtful, intentional, and self-directed decision.
Improve Your Relationship with Our Couples’ Therapy Services
Relationships are complex and unique. Each one requires patience and practice.
As with any other skill, nobody is born an expert at communication, stress management, and conflict resolution. Fortunately, you can improve your proficiency at each with the help of experienced experts (again, just like with any other skill).
At A New Hope Therapy Center, our counselors are trained in, and passionate about, empowering you to enhance your relationships by improving these skills. To start building a more rewarding relationship with those you love, schedule an appointment today.
