Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy in Glen Burnie, MD
Relationships take a lot of work. Once the “honeymoon phase” fades away, small things start to bother you more and past issues become ever-present. If you’re in a committed relationship, you understand what this feels like. When these issues aren’t taken care of, it can lead to disaster. Trust diminishes, intimacy seemingly disappears, and communication can get to an all-time low. In fact, did you know that…
- Almost 50% of all marriages in the United States will end in separation or divorce?
- The average first marriage that ends in divorce lasts about 8 years?
- The average age for couples going through their first divorce is 30 years old?
The real question is, why are so many couples separating or getting divorced? It doesn’t matter if you and your partner have been dating for less than a year or married for over 10, problems happen that need to be addressed before they get worse. Breaking up or getting a divorce doesn’t have to be the path you and your loved one take. On average, couples wait six years before getting the help they need. By understanding and recognizing when you and your partner need professional help, you’ll be able to strengthen your relationship and overcome your challenges quicker and more successfully.

Can Couples Therapy or Marriage Counseling Help Me and My Partner?
Jazz and Chris spent years sweeping the small issues under the rug. One wouldn’t do the dishes and the other would angrily slam the dishwasher closed. Another wouldn’t come home from work at a decent hour every night and the other would let the cold spot between them in bed grow larger and larger. That was until they decided to pursue couples therapy. Now Jazz and Chris can communicate more effectively together and understand the importance of listening.
If you have a problem at hand, no matter how big or small you think it is, you could benefit from speaking to a Thriveworks counselor about your concerns. Here are a few of the most common reasons why couples come to us for counseling:
