Relationship Counseling in Detroit, MI—Couples and Marriage Therapists

Dax Shepard and Kristin Bell are major celebrities—but they aren’t just admired for their appearances on the big screen, they’re admired for their relationship, too. These two prioritize:

  • Having open and honest conversations
  • Maintaining intimacy, both physically and emotionally
  • Supporting one another in their personal and professional goals
  • Parenting their children well and supporting their health and happiness

These are staples of a happy and healthy relationship that stand in stark contrast to common relationship issues. What we mean is that many couples struggle with open, honest communication; with maintaining a healthy level of intimacy; with providing each other with the right support; and with getting on the same page in terms of how they parent. 

That’s not to say that Shepard and Bell don’t have their fair share of problems. For example, Shepard commonly opens up about his struggle with addiction. This doesn’t just introduce challenges into Shepard’s life but his relationship with Bell. However, those priorities we mentioned above help them navigate this challenge effectively.

If your relationship has hit a roadblock and you’re struggling to get on the same page, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling in Detroit, MI. The reality is that every relationship will run into problems, and sometimes couples need a little outside help to get through it. In fact, Shepard and Bell have boasted of attending and benefitting from couples therapy themselves. If you’d like to schedule a couples therapy or marriage counseling session, call our office today.

How Can Couples Therapy or Marriage Counseling Help My Relationship?

Relationship counseling is led by skilled, caring professionals who have expertise in helping couples. Therefore, couples therapy and marriage counseling can help people in many different ways, but the main goals can be divided into the following:

  1. Assist the couple with addressing and managing their problems: Often, couples bring specific challenges in their relationship to therapy. Common relationship issues include poor communication, trust issues, lack of intimacy, disagreements in parenting, financial stress, and differing opinions. These challenges aren’t easy to work through and involve having a vulnerable, honest conversation. Relationship counselors guide these conversations and help their clients to address and resolve the problems at hand.
  2. Prepare for future challenges: The problems that you are experiencing in your relationship at present likely won’t be the last. As we said earlier, every relationship runs into challenges. It’s normal. That said, a counselor can help you and your partner prepare for future challenges and learn to communicate more effectively about your thoughts, feelings, and needs.
  3. Improve your overall relationship: The primary goal of couples therapy and marriage counseling is to help you and your partner or spouse improve your relationship holistically. They will want to talk to both you and your partner to understand problem areas and needs from both perspectives. They will then do whatever they can to help you achieve your personal goals for your relationship and your time in counseling.

Relationship counseling helps couples work through their relationship challenges, better prepare for future problems that may arise, and improve their relationship holistically. If you’re interested in tackling these goals with a couples therapist or marriage counselor, reach out to Thriveworks Counseling in Detroit, MI.

I contacted Thriveworks in July in dire need of an experienced therapist after trying many other options. I write this in January thankful those other possibilities did not work out. I was assigned Ms. Megan Dunne and I was extremely fortunate to have her professional help during these last 6 months. She made me feel more comfortable "in my own skin" by the end of our second session than I had in a long time. She assigned me to keep a "GRATEFUL JOURNAL" which was only the beginning. Her calm demeanor and probing questions gave me insightful sessions that were followed by more assigned readings. Today I am in SUCH a better place than when I was in our 1st session and I am grateful to have had Megan as my therapist!

Megan Dunne is my Therapist. I’ve had a few therapists throughout my life and it’s hard to find one that makes a difference and helps you. I’m learning a lot from her and I use the techniques she taught me in stressful situations. Great Therapist!
