marriage Counseling & couples Therapy
You’re not feeling satisfied in your relationship. You’re no longer emotionally connected as you once were.
You used to have intimacy and romance in your relationship, but lately, it seems like it has faded.
You’re frustrated with your partner. You don’t feel like they hear or respect you anymore. Maybe, you have had trouble communicating or finding time to spend with each other. You both are dealing with the stress of life, work, and parenthood, and you need to do something to reconnect and work on your relationship. Contact Counseling Center at Cinco Ranch to schedule marriage counseling at our Katy TX office today.
Your Marriage or Relationship Does Not Have to Become a Depressing Statistic
Did you know that the statistic “half of all marriages end in divorce” is simply false? In fact, the US divorce rate has been falling for decades and current studies estimate it’s closer to only 42%. But, this doesn’t mean that there are more healthy relationships in the United States. If we expand this figure to include couples who are unhappy or in crisis but will never separate or divorce, then we can see there are large numbers of annoyed, frustrated, glum couples.
But what if you could avoid becoming a statistic? What if you could have the relationship you’ve always craved?
If any of these sound like your relationship…
- You and your partner don’t communicate honestly or with respect
- There has been a betrayal of trust or an affair
- You’re more like roommates than lovers
- You feel isolated and alone
Separation is not an option because of your children
- You’d love a wonderful life together
- You both genuinely want to improve your relationship
…Then couples therapy could be for you.
Heal your Relationship with Couples Therapy
Whether you are trying to fix small relationship problems or relationship-ending challenges, couples therapy can help. When you work with a trained marriage and couples therapist you each feel valued, heard, and connected.
The Counseling Center at Cinco Ranch’s Unique Approach to Marriage Counseling
The Counseling Center at Cinco Ranch has couples therapists that provide you and your partner with a non-judgemental and supportive environment to work on your issues. We will address your individual wants and needs. Then, we will use evidence-based techniques and therapies to build confidence, openness. and respect. We’ll work together to improve your relationship with each other for the long-haul.
Our therapists use the following techniques to help strengthen your relationship:
The Gottman Method:
The Gottman Method employs a scientific approach to improving your relationship. A trained couples therapist will provide an assessment at the beginning of your time together using the Gottman Method, aka Imago Relationship Therapy approach. This allows them to determine the strengths and challenges in your relationship. Then, they will work to strengthen your relationship by improving friendship, learning and practicing conflict management, and creation of shared meaning.
Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT):
In EFT your therapist will assess your relationship to learn where the issues lie. They will help you work on identifying the triggers that cause conflict in your relationship. After all, conflict in relationships is normal and healthy as long as neither spouse loses their temper and says or does things they will later regret. Our marital therapists will show you how to use the imago communication method to communicate with respect, even in the face of conflict, and truly listening to one another and feeling heard. By doing this you will gain a better understanding of each other’s perspective and communication styles. Then you will learn tools and techniques to better connect and improve intimacy in your relationship.
Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling Works!
By encouraging honest, empathetic communication and using strategies to heal the hurt in your relationship, couples counseling becomes an empowering process for both of you. After therapy, couples generally feel more satisfied with their relationship overall. They feel they understand their partner’s perspective better. Also, they can communicate more openly and effectively. Couples feel they are able to handle conflict better after learning tools like self-soothing and compromise. Additionally, couples generally report an increase in satisfaction with passion/romance and sexual intimacy. Overall, they feel more emotionally engaged in their relationship.
When both partners are provided with the right tools and healthy insights, relationship frustrations often ease or disappear. Problems become manageable, validation & openness increases. Mature communication paves the way for a calmer, happier relationship. Ultimately, couples therapy gives partners the tools they need to move forward in their relationship in a healthy way.
