Daniel and Brianna would go on dates once a week when they first became a couple. They also traveled and made friends along the way. Daniel popped the question while they were on vacation in the Bahamas and Brianna could not have been more excited to marry the man of her dreams. They got married, celebrated, and bought a house together. Then arguments started and tension grew stronger. Walls of resentment began to build up around each other and their once young love full of joy has been washed by bickering, cold shoulders, and anger.
Does this progression sound familiar? Young love turned into fights almost once a week. Having ups and downs in a relationship is completely normal. It is a part of young love that often gets overlooked. However, it is very much a part of committed relationships. When the challenges you and your spouse are facing become too hard to handle on your own, you may find it beneficial to turn to a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) to help you work through those problems.
At Thriveworks Pueblo Counseling, we have a team of marriage counselors who have the training and skills to help couples work through their problems and come out more connected to each other than they were before. If you feel like you and your spouse could use some additional support in building a stronger foundation, it may be time to reach out. When you are ready to get started, just give our office a call and one of our scheduling specialists can set you up with a licensed psychologist as soon as possible.

How Can Marriage Counseling Help Us?
When you first start marriage counseling, your therapist will sit down and listen to both of your individual needs, wants, and goals. This will help your counselor better identify where the cracks are in your relationship in order to come up with a unique plan of action based on your situation. Not only do our psychologists have the training and experience needed to help you resolve your issues, but they also have a multitude of skills and techniques that are proven beneficial to married couples.
