McDonough Marriage Counseling

Marriage Counseling – McDonough Therapists and Counselors

For couples who have been married for many years or even newlyweds, conflicts that compromise the integrity of the relationship can arise. Although everyone believes the ideal of marriage will last, for many, relationships difficulties simply cannot be resolved without an objective guide or professional. From infidelity and cultural difficulties to irreconcilable differences or steps to improve a relationship, seeking marriage counseling can provide a multitude of benefits for interested couples.

From raising a family to dealing with financial matters, career changes and even health issues; marriages can be difficult to manage and many couples can suffer from much strain. Marriage counseling is a therapeutic approach to addressing the needs, interests and the fears of both parties in a marriage. Counseling is a helpful approach as it provides insight into the difficulties that many encounter.

How counseling can help you

The role of your therapist is to get to understand the personalities of each person within the marriage. The couple will address potential concerns or issues and present these problems to the therapist for further exploration and discussion. Your therapist acts as a professional and an objective guide. In many conflicting situations, it becomes increasingly difficult for either party to see the perspective of another. The lines become blurred and one person may not be able to comprehend how their action or lack of action has had a direct impact on the health of the relationship.

The process

Marriage counseling is not a once of session but an ongoing process and journey of self-discovery. Couples are educated on better ways to communicate and truly listen to one another. A therapist will introduce various exercises to be performed at home. These exercises include ways of getting to know one another and what each person would do when faced with a particular conflict. A professional will also take the time to determine how each person manages stress and the difficulties that can occur in their professional or financial lives.

You need help

When difficulties are encountered in a relationship that both parties cannot resolve on their own, an experienced and a certified marriage counselor offers a multitude of supportive benefits. A professional therapist offers comprehensive services and dedicated efforts to assist married couples.

Professional services are also sought by newlyweds to teach each person how to communicate, how to manage financial matters, conflict resolution and stress management. When children are involved, it becomes increasingly important to resolve conflict and to provide the family the resources and tools needed to overcome obstacles in a healthy controlled manner.

Various issues are addressed in marriage counseling from gambling addictions and substance abuse to infidelity and poor communication. Individuals who have been married for years and reach retirement may benefit from marriage counseling as the dynamic shifts once again and couples have to settle into their new roles in the home environment.

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.

****EYE OPENER****

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.
