Build a Healthy Marriage—Marriage Counseling in Portland, ME

The line between conflicts that can be dealt with privately by couples and those that need professional support is often hard to draw. Many people feel that couples or marriage counseling is a last-ditch solution for couples facing divorce and separation. Many couples hold a belief that when one decides to attend couples or marriage therapy it is a signal that the end of a relationship is near. This belief surely feeds into the fact that a large percentage of couples refuse to obtain professional help and instead continue to exist in conflicted relationships.

It is important to note that many partners do choose to participate in marriage and couples counseling, frequently couples do so purely to improve their relationship. That said, therapy can’t always fix all of the relationship problems, but it is without a doubt a step forward and proof that you and your partner want to work together towards a happier future. If you’d like to pursue marriage counseling, consider reaching out to Thriveworks Counseling in Portland, ME.

Is It Time To Seek Marital Help?

Making a decision to go to couples or marriage counseling is one that entirely depends on the couple, there are no specific guidelines outlining the perfect time to do so. However, there are a number of signs which could suggest now is the right time, these include:

  • The enduring conflict within your partnership has started to seriously affect you and your partner’s happiness, as well as your physical and mental health.
  • The situation in your relationship has come to a deadlock – any progress towards a conflict resolution seems to have stalled permanently.
  • You and your partner are no longer capable of communicating in a constructive fashion – every conversation or exchange results in further conflict aggravation.

Where To Seek Help?

A therapist is an independent arbiter who has no connection and no preconceived notions about the relationship of the couple he or she is working with – many couples find that the neutrality of the counselor makes conflict resolution easier. This facilitation of conflict resolution during couples or marriage counseling allows many partners to take a new look at their situation and improve their communication.
