Relationship issues can cause significant stress on couples and even put a strain on your home life. Despite the fact that they’re common, it doesn’t always make them any easier to deal with. However, if you’re having difficulty resolving a matter on your own, addressing it with a counselor sooner rather than later is a wise choice.
“Couples wait an average of six years of being unhappy
with their relationship before getting help.”
The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists even advises that the sooner you and your spouse or partner begin counseling, the more likely you are to achieve positive resolution of what’s troubling you. If you see the value in couples therapy, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling. We have couples therapists and other relationship experts on our team. These professionals specialize in helping couples work through their particular challenges and also working with them to strengthen the overall relationship.
To schedule your first counseling therapy session, give our office a call. Our scheduling team is here and ready to get you all set up for your first session!
Addressing Common Relationship Issues in Couples Therapy
Of course, every relationship is going to have its ups and downs as the years pass by. It would be unnatural to assume that you and your spouse are always going to agree on everything. Most of the time, these differences in opinion can be resolved easily between you, but on occasion, you might feel like the problem isn’t going away.
Do you feel stuck? You might be dealing with a common relationship issue, or something totally unique. Either way, seeking support and advice in couples therapy is a great choice to help facilitate a resolution. At times, some partners might think that couples counseling isn’t necessary because their relationship is otherwise strong. We are delighted to hear that couples who seek our support still feel in love and enjoy a firm bond with one another, but that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t benefit from professional help with an issue such as:
- Disagreeing on how to raise children
- Arguing over spending or saving habits
- Feeling concerned about a partner potentially being unfaithful
- Struggling with stress from an extended family member
- Worry about health issues and related expenses
- Being concerned about a partner overworking or losing their job.
Whatever your specific argument or conflict, our Thriveworks Baltimore couples therapists can step in and help. They can mediate these difficult conversations as well as offer guidance and support.

The couples therapists at Thriveworks Baltimore Counseling are here to help couples work through relationship issues, such as those listed above. That said, another main mission of theirs is to help couples further strengthen their relationships and better prepare for future conflicts.

The couples therapists at Thriveworks Baltimore can help you and your partner communicate more effectively, better understand each other’s needs, and more.
