Monroe, LA Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling

Relationships are full of happy memories, lots of love, and endless laughs. But they are also full of conflict, bickering, and hard conversations. Even the couples you see on social media who you consider to be “goals” have the same issues that you and your partner are likely facing. Every relationship, no matter how long you have been together, runs into problems.

Consider these scenarios:

  • You and your partner are just coming down from the honeymoon phase and little things are starting to bother you
  • Your significant other brought up a sensitive topic and you don’t know how to make them see your side of things
  • You’ve been together for a while and you feel like your spark is slowly fading and wish to bring it back
  • You, your partner, or both of you have been unfaithful in your relationship and you want to rebuild trust and move on

Chances are, you can relate to one of these situations. Whether you and your partner have been dating for less than a year or have been married for over 10 years, you could most likely benefit from speaking with a licensed psychologist. 

At Thriveworks Counseling in Monroe, LA, we have marriage counselors and couples therapists who are trained and experienced in helping couples work through all different kinds of challenges and problems. If you and your partner feel like there are areas of your relationship that could improve, the best thing to do is work with a dedicated mental health professional.

To get started, give our office a call.

What If My Partner and I Are Not a Good Fit for Therapy?

Here at Thriveworks, we strongly believe that everyone can benefit from counseling. Everyone’s mental health should be a priority in their lives. Just as you would see your primary care doctor when you’re in physical pain, you should also reach out to a mental health professional when you’re feeling overwhelmed. In fact, there are many reasons why our clients come to us for help.

A list of common reasons that people seek couples therapy at Thriveworks Counseling in Monroe are:

  • Distrust
  • Infidelity and cheating
  • Disagreements about family, parenting, and/or values
  • Communication problems
  • Stress and anger
  • Conflicting goals in life
  • Lack of intimacy
  • Problems with sexuality
  • Grief and loss
  • Trouble conceiving

This is only a short list of reasons to seek the help of a trusted marriage and family therapist. If your problem wasn’t on the list, don’t worry. We can help. Even if you and your partner aren’t sure exactly what the root cause of your problems are, we can help you identify them.

In cases where the problems and challenges you and your partner face are too big or too emotionally draining, your therapist can also help you make tough decisions like when it might be time to split up. Regardless, here at Thriveworks, we have both partner’s best interests at heart.

How Can a Counselor Help Me and My Partner?

As we have touched on briefly, the leaps and bounds our marriage and couples counselors will make for their clients are endless. They are dedicated to helping you and your loved one fix the issues holding you back so you can start living happier, more loving lives together. 

Some of the tools in which our therapists can equip you with include:

  • How to communicate effectively
  • Increased respect for each other
  • Identify the root problems of your relationship
  • How to listen to your partner, and not just “hear” them
  • Building up more trust
  • And more!

These are just a few of the things you can learn during your time working with one of our licensed marriage and family therapists. Emotionally focused therapy, psychotherapy, narrative therapy, and management techniques are all ways to achieve that. If you’re seeking marriage therapy or couples counseling, consider working with us.
