All relationships face highs and lows, both positive and negative spells – and yours, though unique, does, too. The place you and your partner inhabit emotionally is most likely not where you started, nor is it written in stone for your future. Take a moment to consider how the health of your relationship might improve with couples therapy.
Are you like Maggie and Chris? They married young, right out of college, and it wasn’t long before they began to question their commitment to each other. Maggie still wanted to see what life could offer her as an independent, single young woman, while Chris wanted to travel the world. Wanderlust led to resentment in just three years of marriage for the college sweethearts. Or perhaps your story resembles that of John and Liz, who simply stared at each other over the dinner table, unsure what to do after their last son moved away to college. They hardly knew each other after twenty years of raising kids; both were overwhelmed at starting a new phase of their life together. (803) 477-3736

It’s possible you more closely identify with the attraction of opposites in Tiffany and Brian’s home. While both are dedicated parents, their child-rearing philosophies come from different schools of parenting. Brian was expected to wear a collared shirt to dinner, while Tiffany never had a curfew, growing up. Now that their daughter is a rebellious 16 year-old, they’re finding it difficult to reach common ground, given their opposing approaches.
How satisfying is the current state of your relationship? In some cases, couples come to us seeking professional guidance for specific situations—problems getting along, infidelity, parenting, trust issues. In others, couples choose to see a therapist because they feel the relationship is incomplete, or missing something. Sometimes, they come because they want more of a connection and greater intimacy.
Nothing great was ever accomplished without hard work. If the thought of discussing the personal details of your relationship drains your energy or causes anxiety, you’re perfectly normal. With some of our clients, one partner is ready for therapy and the other apprehensive; however, we’ve learned through years of field experience that making a commitment to change is, by far, most effective and fruitful when guided by a professional.
We’re ready when you are. Making an appointment is your first assignment. So, why Thriveworks couples therapy in Columbia? Our couples and marriage therapists assess the needs and goals of both partners and the relationship by listening to your story first. A licensed couples counselor will offer you new tools to use as you navigate through your specific concerns to land in a place of resolution and understanding. Without telling you what decisions to make, our couples and marriage therapists facilitate conversation to expand your sense of self, including your family history and unique relationship dynamics. That’s how real change happens.
“Change doesn’t happen overnight, but we believe it can be achieved sooner and with more promising results when it happens within the support system of counseling. Thriveworks therapists specialize in a variety of strategies to get to the root of your particular challenge.”
