Marriage Counseling in Phoenix, AZ Might Be the Answer You’re Looking for

Marriage counseling is helpful for couples who feel stuck in their patterns of communicating and relating to one another. So many partners allow months or years to go by without them truly learning how to maximize their communication styles. So, they ultimately being to feel disconnected and misunderstood. Sometimes it is beneficial to allow a professional into the communication triangle in order to notice unhelpful patterns. And, even to observe strengths that continue to point to hope down the road that re-engaging and reconnecting is possible.

Raising children together, having bills to pay, loss and so many other things add stress to a relationship. Not to mention that many individual needs change with age and with circumstances. All this can leave the other person confused and helpless. As a result, brokenness occurs after stress wears individuals down. Individuals say and do things that are hurtful to the other in order to regain a sense of control. Or, to test the other’s commitment to the relationship. But, we are not saying these things are okay or signs of a healthy relationship. Regardless, a couple’s bond to one another certainly becomes tested with time and with living life.

The Ataraxis Counseling Approach to Marriage Counseling in Phoenix, AZ

In my couple’s therapy sessions, I help people develop the necessary skills needed to maintain sustaining love. At Ataraxis Counseling, the partner’s unit is at the center of our care. If a mother feels misunderstood and under-supported by her partner, we feel that it will not be long before the relationship and the children feel the consequences. A father may feel their partner doesn’t trust him with the children. Or, that their partner doesn’t believe in his ambitions. We believe that the withdrawal of that person’s emotional contribution will impact the entire family unit. And, we truly believe that marriage counseling is a wonderful tool. One that equips couples to understand, accept, and compromise their way to a deeper, more gratifying relationship with one another. Loving someone is not always a feeling. But loving someone always is an action.
