Help for Couples and Marriage at Thriveworks Manassas Virginia

Building a Relationship Takes Vision

Relationships can be somewhat like a jigsaw puzzle. You and your partner are both busy trying to build a complete life, a portrait of happiness and peace for both of you. You both work hard to develop joy and serenity, a harmonious vision of a relationship that will last.

Completing this piece of art isn’t something that is achieved quickly. It takes time and effort to place everything together. Your diligence and hard work provide many aspects of the puzzle. Your partner also has to contribute, sharing their ideas of how the two of you should spend your lives together as a couple. If done right, a relationship can truly be a masterpiece that complements your life and elevates those around you.

We Can Help You See the Whole Picture

Thriveworks couples counselors and therapists understand that this complete portrait is the goal couples are reaching for. We know creating a cohesive image of what your relationship should be can be somewhat daunting though. You and your partner may have different images in mind of how the relationship should go. While you might think of happiness as an intimate family gathering at home, spending quiet time together enjoying games, your partner may picture adventurous trips that take the two of you to romantic locations. Our therapists in Manassas VA have enough experience working with couples to know that neither dream is better or worse. The challenge is reconciling your vision with the picture your partner has for the future.

When you and your partner aren’t on the same page, it can cause friction in the relationship. This can manifest in a multitude of ways, from stony silence when ideas are challenged to fiery rebukes when the wrong thing is said. In some relationships, these episodes may only happen infrequently, with the relationship generally being satisfactory for both you and your partner. In other cases, these outbursts and behaviors might be more common, adding immensely to the stress you feel. No matter the type of outward display, the inner turmoil is tough to deal with.

Even if your relationship isn’t in crisis, our counselors and therapists can help you identify areas you might need to work on and address them before they become a problem. Our couples therapists and counselors can show ways to improve communications, to allow each of you to share your vision for what each of you wants from the relationship. As you and your partner share your vision, our staff can help you find ways to see the commonalities between each vision.
