Marriage Counseling in Fort Lauderdale, FL—Counselors and Therapists

When two people love each other and know they want to spend the rest of their lives together, they often embark on marriage. In the days leading up to their wedding day, the couple dreams about how amazing married life will be. They fantasize about the family they will build and all of the memories they will make together. While this can all very well come true, we often forget that marriage isn’t all highs—there are lows, too. Marriage takes hard work, and even when we put in that work, it’s impossible to avoid conflict forever. The reality is that we must confront obstacles as they come and work through them together.

“The greatest marriages are built on teamwork… a mutual respect, a healthy dose of admiration and a never ending portion of love and grace.” –Fawn Weaver

The harsh reality is that many marriages end in divorce. Why is this? While there isn’t one simple answer, conflict resolution likely plays a major role. In other words, many couples fail to acknowledge, discuss, manage, and resolve the conflicts that arise in their marriage. Common issues include financial stress, lack of intimacy, and infidelity. In any case, it’s important that the couple brings light to the issue, talks about it, and work through it together. But that is often easier said than done for many couples.

Fortunately, there is help available to couples who are struggling to work through the issues in their marriage. The marriage counselors at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale specialize in helping married couples to improve their conflict resolution skills and, in turn, their relationship. If you think that you and your spouse could benefit from working with a marriage counselor or psychologist, reach out to Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale at (754) 400-5514. A scheduling specialist can help you schedule your first appointment today.

Should I Look Into Marriage Counseling?

It’s hard to admit that we have a problem and need help. But it’s also so important that we swallow our pride and do just that. Doing so can prove to save y our marriage. In other instances, we fail to recognize that there is a problem or improvements that could be made. Take a minute to tune into your marriage and answer the following:

  1. Do my spouse and I communicate effectively? Do we feel comfortable talking to each other about any given issue?
  2. Does my spouse or myself struggle with jealousy issues? Do either of us get jealous when the other spends time with friends or talks to people of the opposite sex?
  3. Do my spouse and I struggle to connect on a deeper or intimate level? Is this effecting our relationship?
  4. Are my spouse and I on the same page when it comes to parenting our kids? Do we agree on parenting styles?
  5. Are my spouse and I fulfilled on an individual level? Are we still able to work toward personal goals with the support of the other?

These are important, yet sometimes difficult questions to explore with your spouse. A marriage counselor or psychologist can assist you with this activity and then help you make any necessary adjustments to increase happiness or fulfillment in your relationship.

How Does Marriage Counseling Work?

The marriage counselor at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale will analyze your relationship and structure therapy based on your needs.
