Las Vegas NV Couples and Marriage Counseling
We’d like to thank you for stopping to consider how the health of your relationship might improve with couples therapy. All relationships face highs and lows, both positive and negative spells and yours, though unique, does as well. The place you and your partner inhabit, emotionally, is most likely not where you started, nor is it written in stone for your future.
Are you like Carrie and Craig? They married young, right out of college, and it wasn’t long before they began to question their commitment: Carrie still wanted to see what life could offer her as an independent, single young woman; while Craig wanted to travel the world. Wanderlust led to resentment in just three years of marriage, for the college sweethearts. Or perhaps your story resembles that of John and Liz, who simply stared at each other over the dinner table, unsure what to do after their last son moved away to college. They hardly knew each other after twenty years of raising kids; both were overwhelmed at starting a new phase of their life together.
It’s possible you more closely identify with the attraction of opposites in Tiffany and Brian’s home. While both are dedicated parents, their child-rearing philosophies come from different schools of parenting. Brian was expected to wear a collared shirt to dinner, while Tiffany never had a curfew, growing up. Now that their daughter is a rebellious 16 year-old, they’re finding it difficult to reach common ground, given their opposing approaches.
How satisfying is the current state of your relationship? In some cases, couples come to us seeking professional guidance for specific situations—problems getting along, infidelity, parenting, trust issues. In others, couples choose to see a therapist because they feel the relationship is incomplete, or missing something. Sometimes, they come because they want more of a connection and greater intimacy.
Nothing great was ever accomplished without hard work. If the thought of discussing the personal details of your relationship drains your energy or causes anxiety, you’re perfectly normal. With some of our clients, one partner is ready for therapy and the other apprehensive; however, we’ve learned through years of field experience that making a commitment to change is, by far, most effective and fruitful when guided by a professional.
We’re ready when you are. Making an appointment is your first assignment. So, why Thriveworks Couples Counseling? Thriveworks assesses the needs and goals of both partners and the relationship, by first listening to your story. A licensed counselor will offer you new tools to use as you navigate through your specific concerns to land in a place of resolution and understanding. Without telling you what decisions to make, we facilitate conversation to expand your sense of self, including your family history and unique relationship dynamics. That’s how real change happens.
The “three-client model” used in-session by our therapists (partner 1, partner 2, the relationship itself) surprises many new clients; the therapist considers optimal results for all three parties. Back to the example of Tiffany and Brian, who were both generous, emotionally healthy, loving individuals who only wanted the best for their daughter, but their style of communication needed a bit of work. Identifying the problem shed a more positive and helpful light on the situation.
“Change doesn’t happen overnight, but we believe it can be achieved sooner and with more promising results when it happens within the support system of counseling. Thriveworks couples therapists specialize in a variety of strategies to get to the root of your particular challenge.”
