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.

Marriage counseling does not mean the end of your marriage.

Thriveworks Counseling McDonough

My therapist is the best

★★★★★
I have had several therapist over the last few year, from preachers to other centers, marital to individual counseling. I have never met a person like Deeveria (Dee) Lacy that takes her time to listen, but most importantly, hold me accountable and challenges my thought process. She is patient, always engaged and takes a genuine interest in what I have to say. She is down to earth and transparent with her feelings. This makes it so easy to express myself and not feel judged in the process. In addition, she also counsels my child and I hear nothing but great things when she comes out of her session. She is a therapy genius for all ages and stages. I'm blessed to be a client!

Best decision I’ve made in a while

★★★★★
This is my very first time talking to a licensed therapist and I must say I’m impressed. DeEveria Lacy and I were destined to crossed paths. She is helping my husband and I's marriage in ways we couldn’t even imagine. I wasn’t optimistic about the idea of talking to someone about our marital problems, however doing so has been completely life changing for my husband and I. It isn’t easy hearing the truth at times nor is it easy changing your usual thought process and typical reactions but it's necessary. DeEveria Lacy Has given me so many different analogies and scenarios so I can relate and understand better. She is giving us the necessary tools needed to navigate through our lives and marriage when obstacles arises. Thank YOU DeEveria Lacy!

I was apprehensive at first, as I was having strong physical anxiety symptoms that I wanted to disappear fast. But Sandra taught me to make care of my mind and self care first to have lasting results. I have skills that I still use when I am feeling stressed or overwhelmed. She helped me become a better me.

Dee at Thriveworks

★★★★★
In going to therapy I thought it was going to always be somber, sad, and I was going to always feel like the Bad guy I have enjoyed my sessions with Dee because she finds the good in every situation explained. She makes me feel as if I’ve known her for years. She makes me accountable to counter active behavior. She’s opened my eyes to different ways of thinking about emotional intelligence and accountability. The work isn’t done. But thanks for putting me on the right path.

Myngnon Walton / Play Therapy

★★★★★
I’ve been taking my son to play therapy with Miss Mimi for a little over a year and I’ve noticed a tremendous difference in him being able to express his feelings and emotions after their sessions. She is observant, personable/relatable, genuine, and knowledgeable. My son will specifically ask to visit her if there is a large lapse in time from his last therapy session. I’d definitely recommend Miss Myngnon Walton.

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!
