McDonough Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling – McDonough Therapists and Counselors

Regardless of the type of conflict or the health of your relationship, couples counseling performed by a qualified therapist, offers a multitude of benefits for families. For married and unmarried couples, seeking therapy helps create an improved emotional connection, clearer communication and the ability to determine whether the relationship is working for both of your needs. Many couples go into a partnership without discussing important future prospects including finances and children.

When it comes to a specific life stage and these issues are presented, the relationship can quickly become constrained. Couples counseling provides all relationships the education and the tools needed to manage difficulties and obstacles along their journey.

Couples counseling is generally sought by those who have encountered difficulty or an inability to resolve particular issues. Although it is commonly sought by troubled relationships, couples can benefit from therapy at any stage. A counselor acts as a guide helping individuals determine their compatibility and communication. It is an approach that explores general views and future goals or expectations. A therapist teaches individuals how to manage and resolve conflict with clear communication.

Relationship counseling is best defined as the process where couples seek the assistance of a therapist as a neutral figure, to help manage and resolve difficulties. The issues addressed by the practitioner can range from ongoing arguments and constantly clashing views to aggression, substance abuse, uncontrolled anger, and infidelity. The goal of a counselor is to thoroughly explore the manner in which couples communicate with one another and to address any limiting attitudes, perceptions or behaviors.

The Benefits of Couples Counseling Include:

  • Improving the general communication in the relationship.
  • Exploring conflict resolution and ways of managing differences or changes in attitudes in a healthy, clear and constructive manner.
  • To restore areas of intimacy and help reignite a passion and mutual respect for one another in the relationship.

Every person that enters into a committed relationship has a unique personality, history and value system. When we enter into a relationship, we bring those past experiences and ways of thinking and values into a united partnership. Individuals are bound to come across disagreements and conflicts that are part of any relationship. The difference is the manner in which these conflicts are managed and resolved. By teaching couples how to negotiate their differences and improve their overall communication, it can prevent much of the general difficulties encountered. Complex situations in which substance disorders are present require a look at triggers in a partner and a combination of both couples and individual counseling.

You won’t be disappointed

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Jaquita for family/couples counseling and she was wonderful! She gave us homework assignments to complete, and we also had some very innovative in session assignments. A straight shooter, but very respectful. She’s just awesome!

Professional and Innovative

I just want to give a review of Ms. Jaquita Shorts. My husband and I met with her for several months between May and September for family/marriage counseling. Ms. Shorts gave us homework assignments and in session assignments that made counseling more comfortable. She was also great at drilling down on issues to discover root issues. I definitely suggest giving her a try!

I needed someone to talk to and Keira was a great listener! She was patient and very kind. She didn't rush me I felt very comfortable with her. Very calming environment, clean and smelled great! I have told family members, and they will be going to her next. When I left her office I felt such relief and peace in my heart. I would recommend her to anyone that needs a kind, and open counselor.

Victoria gave me some insight of how I look at some things. It's crazy, that answers are there, just never thought about how deep the root is that started most of the issues I have faced. I wish I could Rate higher than 5.
