Marriage and Couples Counseling – Thriveworks Willow Grove, PA
It’s the first date, and things are going amazingly. Sparks are flying and you feel like you’re in the clouds. The second date comes and you’re on the phone with your friend saying “They’re the one.”
But time goes on and so does your relationship. Your partner’s once endearing stubborn streak now looks like dirty dishes they refuse to put away. Monday morning grumpiness and bills to pay all sap the love out of a once magical relationship.
Can love really fade like this?
Willow Grove Thriveworks doesn’t think so!
All relationships take work and have to navigate through bumpy stretches of time. Not only are arguments, disagreements, and discontentment normal, they can be a sign of a healthy relationship. They are growing pains, and sometimes necessary for your relationship to move forward.
Of course, this doesn’t invalidate your doubts, or make the process any less painful. You deserve to be loved and cherished. Willow Grove Thriveworks can step in and help you both work through those natural, human mistakes and grievances, and come out in a happier, healthier relationship. Our counselors can help you and your partner through a rough patch and/or help you prepare for rough patches in the future.
Relationships are hard work, but they can still be full of love and beauty.
Does couples therapy work?
Ask the couples who have seen a Willow Grove Thriveworks Counselor, and you’ll hear: Yes! Oftentimes, all that is needed to walk through any arguments, doubts, and insecurities is an unbiased third party. We believe the love you first had is still there, just buried under the stress of time and life. You’ve put so much time and effort into this relationship, so let’s give it a change to thrive.
At the beginning of a relationship, infatuation is strong enough that flaws are brushed aside or even romanticized. But as time goes on, old habits and routines become startlingly apparent.
If anything, your partner does or say makes you feel unsafe, our counselors are here to talk it through and decide what the next steps may be.
But other times, the little annoyances aren’t dangerous or destructive to your life, but still leave you feeling unloved, underappreciated, or not respected. You don’t deserve to feel this way! So together, let’s address the root of the problem and strengthen the relationship.
Some common issues our Willow Grove counselors have helped couples overcome include:
- Recovering from cheating
- Managing busy schedules
- Improving on communication skills
- Learning how to live together
- Adjusting to life changes and stress together
- Feelings of jealously or underappreciation
- Unmet needs for affection
- Differing expectations for the relationship
There is no reason too small or too big to seek a counselor. Your concerns are completely valid and important to look at further. Sometimes, we may find that ending the relationship is the best path. With other couples, just “checking in” to keep their relationship and communication strong is what is needed.
What does Couple Therapy look like?
Willow Grove Thriveworks understands that relationships change and so do the problems you encounter! Therefore, each session will be individualized to you, your relationship, and both your long-term and short-term goals.
We work to give a nonjudgmental space for our clients to heal and grow together. Our client-focused practice ensures that you will be the center of the counseling process. We are just here to guide, support, and offer expertise.
Our Thriveworks counselors have accumulated many tools through the years of training and experience they have. We can implement and teach these techniques to help you reach your goals. Together, we may address something specific- like cheating, feeling unloved, or difficulty with communicating our wants and needs. Other times, we may work to increasing overall relationship satisfaction through a myriad of smaller things.
If your relationship isn’t where you want it to be, Willow Grove Thriveworks is here to help you get there!
Lastly, we want you to know that everyone is welcome to our couples therapy. Whether you are dating, engaged, or married, we are excited to meet you and begin the rebuilding and strengthening of your relationship.
Love doesn’t have to die out, with a little extra help, it can be as magical and fulfilling as day one!
