When you were little, did you fantasize about your wedding day? Many of us do. We get caught up in planning the perfect day, one that’s meant to kick off the rest of forever. We’re swept away by the pretty flowers, dresses, and invitations. And then once we’ve put in all the work to make our perfect day a reality, we realize that there is more work to be done: It’s time to focus on building a happy, healthy marriage.
“A perfect marriage is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.”
A healthy marriage requires time and effort with no days off. It’s accepting and working through the challenges that come. It’s putting in the work to build a happy relationship and two happy individuals, too. Here’s the thing, though: sometimes the challenges that arise threaten (and prove) to dismantle a marriage. The good news is there are experts who specialize in helping couples to properly address and overcome these challenges, including jealousy, infidelity, burnout, financial strain, and a difference in values or beliefs.
The exact issue isn’t what’s important: what’s important is your willingness to work through the issue with your partner. As long as you are willing to put in the work, a marriage therapist or psychologist at Thriveworks Bethesda can help you to save or improve your marriage. These professionals can also teach you tools for properly addressing issues that arise in the future. If you think you could find value in marriage therapy, call Thriveworks Bethesda today at (240) 513-3093.
Who Should Receive Marriage Therapy?
We all put our relationships on the backburner from time to time. We endure long hours at work, focus on spending time with our kids, and drown in chores at home. But at some point, we need to turn some attention back to our marriage. A marriage therapist or psychologist can give you helpful tips for making time for your spouse and communicating properly when life does get a little hectic. Additionally, they can assist you with having difficult conversations about…
- Trust issues
- Financial Strain
- Differing values or beliefs
- Disagreements in parenting
- Lack of intimacy
This is not a comprehensive list. Every relationship is different, which means the challenges two individuals might experience are also unique. The marriage therapists and psychologists at Thriveworks Bethesda understand that and will create an individualized plan for you and your partner.
How Can Therapy Help?
Marriage therapy aims to help couples recognize and resolve conflicts as well improve their overall relationship. We accomplish this mission at Thriveworks Bethesda by offering individualized care. In other words, your therapist or psychologist will get to know you, your partner, and your relationship. Then, as we mentioned above, your therapist will develop a treatment plan that takes your specific needs and goals into consideration, of which might include learning to communicate more effectively, talking through potential problem areas, or even working one on one with your therapist in addition to your sessions together.
Your therapist will use their skills, experience, and training to create the best possible experience in treatment—one that yields real results. Every single one of our providers cares deeply about their clients. And they are dedicated to succeeding in their mission of helping couples to build better relationships.
