Zach and Mary have been married for only a few years, and after a string of continued fights lasting several months, they’re both considering whether they’ll need to call it quits. Even though they’ve tried to talk to one another to settle things, it seems like every argument starts because of their buried resentment that lurks below the surface of every argument. Just when it seems like things are going to improve, Zach and Mary head straight into another fight.
But finally last night, Zach changed his mind, deciding that they needed to find another solution—one that involves talking to a marriage counselor about their situation. Though Mary was at first a little surprised, she agrees that they need a mediator, someone who can help them to find common ground once again. They both know that their relationship is worthwhile, and now more than ever, they need to reconnect.
Like Zach and Mary, it’s possible that you and your partner are also experiencing relationship or marriage difficulties that are harming your connection, and driving distance between both of you. At Thriveworks in Cypress, TX we’d like to offer you hope through couples therapy or marriage counseling. With help from one of our mental health professionals, you and the one you love can start to repair the relationship that you hold close.
Should We Talk with a Couples Therapist or Marriage Counselor?
It’s up to both parties in the relationship to decide if they need to seek professional assistance. But if you decide that you’d like to work with a therapist or counselor, you’ll be making a choice that prioritizes your relationship and offers you the support and guidance of a provider who cares. Though each relationship is different, there are common signs of unhealthy dynamics that may be able to be improved via therapy or counseling, including:
- Avoiding physical touch or sex
- Lying and other forms of emotional manipulation
- Arguments that last for hours or days
- Passive-aggressive or abusive behavior
- Inability to respect each other’s boundaries
These are just a few of the many different ways that negative emotions and behaviors can harm your relationship. If your relationship with your partner has been compromised by other actions or behaviors, you can still talk with one of our mental health professionals.
Can Therapy or Counseling Improve Our Relationship?
At Thriveworks in Cypress, TX we believe that anyone can benefit from couples therapy or marriage counseling, regardless of their relationship’s dynamics or the length of time they’ve been with their partner. This is due in part to the fact that every relationship can be improved—communication skills, our ability to empathize or listen, can all be honed. These are just a few of the points that a marriage counselor or couples therapist can help you with.

- Establish healthy boundaries
