Germantown, MD—Couples Counseling in Montgomery County

Every relationship runs into problems: from mere disagreements to opposing values, poor communication, betrayal, or even distance. Naturally, romantic relationships are threatened by many of these blunders and more—especially considering we often spend the majority of our time with (or talking to) our significant others. Still, many of us aren’t sure how to proceed when confronted with an obstacle, such as those listed above.

“A relationship is like a house. When a lightbulb burns out, you don’t go buy a new house, you fix the lightbulb.”

Sometimes we can figure out how to address and manage a problem that arises in our relationship, but in other instances, we need a little help. And who better to help than someone who specializes in helping couples? If you and your partner could use some professional guidance in your relationship, consider working with a couples counselor or psychologist at Thriveworks Germantown in Montgomery County. In addition to having specific expertise in helping couples work through the challenges that threaten their relationship, these individuals have important experience under their belt and they truly care about helping you live a happier, healthier life. To schedule an appointment, just give us a call.

What Are the Benefits of Working with a Couples Counselor?

The couples counselors at Thriveworks Germantown can help couples at any stage of their relationship: they can help those who have just entered a relationship, those who have vowed to spend the rest of their lives together, and those who have already spent a century loving each other and enjoying holy matrimony. You can benefit from working with a couples counselor, even if you and your partner are at the height of your relationship and couldn’t get along better. That said, if the following ring true, you should consider exploring couples counseling:

  • You and your partner are struggling to connect on a deeper level.
  • You aren’t sure you see a future with your current partner.
  • You and your significant other disagree and fight about finances.
  • You and your partner don’t agree on parenting strategies.
  • You’re always fighting, and you don’t know why or how to stop it.
  • Your partner cheated and now you have trust issues.

This is a list of problems that could call for couples counseling. However, the list doesn’t stop there. Simply put, if you think that you and your partner could find value in working with a couples counseling, it is something you should explore. To hear more about it, or to schedule an appointment, give Thriveworks Germantown in Montgomery County a call.

What If My Partner Isn’t on Board with Couples Counseling?

Some people are more open to couples counseling (and other mental health services) than others. If you are hopeful about couples counseling and how it could improve your relationship, but your partner is on the fence, consult the following tips for encouraging him to take this important step with you:

  1. Comfort them by explaining that you’re in this together.

Sometimes, people view couples counseling as a resort. If this is the case, your partner might think that you are ready to end the relationship. In reality, couples counseling can help couples who have zero intentions of breaking up! Explain to your partner that you want to go to couples counseling to give your relationship the very best shot.

  1. Tell them about the rewards of couples counseling.

Many people also jump to conclusions about couples counseling without understanding the benefits that they might experience. If your partner isn’t familiar with couples counseling or mental health help, explain the credentials of a licensed counselor. Also, delve into some statistics, if it’ll help. Here’s one, for example: the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy reported that 97.4% of couples surveyed were satisfied with their experience in couples counseling. Furthermore 93% said their counselor helped them to deal with their challenges effectively.
