Couples Therapy Chicago
Couples counseling is designed to help people in relationships explore barriers that are keeping them from reaching emotional, physical and economic stability.
Often, people seek relationship therapists in Chicago because they think something is “wrong” with their relationship. In truth however, the need for couples counseling can be an indication that something is right.
For example, two individuals who are in love with one another realize that on some level, they are having difficulty communicating. Recognizing this issue, they seek out the support and guidance of an experienced couples counselor and make an appointment.
The good news is that both parties realize a barrier exists to greater intimacy. We consider that realization a major strength and use this as a foundation to begin working.
Couples Therapy: New Skills for Couples
One of the great things about couples counseling is that it offers a unique opportunity for a couple to learn new skills. Some examples include:
- Learning how to focus on the positives in the relationship
- Recognizing unproductive patterns and cycles
- Infusing passion back into the relationship
- Creating positive change and moving away from the “same old”
