Couples and Marriage Therapy
You feel like you barely speak the same language anymore. There are so many days you feel like you can’t even be in the same room together or the tension will reach a breaking point. You feel like you’re failing one another day after day. There’s no “getting on the same page” because you’re writing completely different books.
As you think about it, you realize it’s been this way for a while. You can’t think of the last time you woke up, looking forward to spending the day with your partner. You struggle to identify a time it felt like the two of you operated your way through a problem as a PAIR, a TEAM, a DYNAMIC DUO. You certainly can’t identify the last time you spent time in one another’s company and actually belly-laughed, feeling gratitude all the way to your bones that the person next to you is your partner.
Some Indications That Couples Therapy or Marriage Counseling in St. Louis May Be For You
Some days the state of your relationship has you feeling empty—you’re too worn out from all of your trying. Other days, it fills you with despair that your relationship has gotten to this. The embarrassment that you can’t figure it out shows up on occasion. Anger shows its ugly head. Shame. Grief. It’s all there.
But there’s also some hope: hope that it can be better. Hope that with the right toolkit, you can right-size your (relation)ship. Hope that the two of you can return to a place where things work in tandem; that you enjoy the heck out of one another’s company; and that you feel respected, supported, and loved in your relationship and by your partner.
And that hope is driving you to this place: couples and marriage therapy.
Couples and Marriage Therapy can Help with your Stress!
Whether you’re embarking on this journey due to issues around parenting; finances; infidelity; differences in life goals; extended family; household management and task distribution; or communication issues, relationship therapy can help you straighten it out: together.
In couples counseling, your therapist will help you navigate the tough conversations that have been hurdles to your relationship. You’ll identify core goals and get clear about what’s working--and what isn’t--in the relationship. It will take honesty, and openness, and vulnerability. But your therapist will help you do that in a way that feels safe…productive…worthwhile.
The Marble Wellness Approach to Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling in St. Louis
Couples and marriage therapy will help you get clear communication strategies to use in the present and the future. It will help both of you shift your perspective from “me vs. you” to “me and you”. You’ll learn to recenter the organism that is your relationship in your daily lives and gain ways to work on the relationship, without that work feeling like a constant grind. Through couples therapy, you’ll get to a place that you can talk to each other productively again. A place where there are more peaks than valleys. And a place where your relationship restores you at the end of a hard day, instead of drains you even at the end of a good day.
