Help for Your Relationship
Couples counseling is often provided by licensed counselors, and therapists are known as marriage and family therapists. These therapists/counselors have graduate or postgraduate degrees — and many choose to become credentialed by the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT).
Marriage counseling typically includes both partners, but sometimes one partner chooses to work with a therapist alone. The specific treatment plan depends on the situation. Marriage counseling can help couples in all types of intimate relationships — regardless of sexual orientation or marital status.
Some couples seek marriage counseling to strengthen their partnership and gain a better understanding of each other. Marriage counseling can also help couples who plan to get married. Premarital counseling can help couples achieve a deeper understanding of each other and iron out differences before marriage.
In other cases, couples seek marriage counseling to improve a troubled relationship. You can use marriage counseling to help with many specific issues, including:
Conflicts about child rearing or blended families
Relationships are at the core of what we value in life. Everyone deserves to be in a partnership where both people feel loved and valued. Each person needs to feel deeply heard and understood by their loved one. Regardless of what is keeping you from connecting with your partner, couples therapy can help.
