Relationship Counseling Q & A

When do I need relationship counseling?

Relationship counseling, also called couples therapy, can improve your bond at any stage. Some people decide to start counseling early in their relationship. They may not have specific problems but want to use therapy to build a solid foundation, learn respectful communication, and explore any potentially divisive issues.

Many couples don't seek relationship counseling until they are bogged down in daily disagreements and on the verge of separating —others turn to therapy when they just can't solve a conflict independently.

Examples of the challenges that bring couples in for counseling include:

  • Difficulty communicating
  • Negative or disrespectful communication
  • Disagreements over money
  • Conflicting parenting styles
  • Need to improve intimacy
  • Sexual dissatisfaction or dysfunction
  • Alcohol or drug addiction in one or both partners
  • Problems with anger management
  • Mental or emotional abuse
  • Infidelity and loss of trust

Though most people in a relationship go to counseling together, one person can seek therapy alone if their partner doesn't want to participate. 

What should I expect during relationship counseling?

During relationship counseling, Mark gives you a safe place where each person can honestly share their feelings. He helps you identify and navigate the issues causing problems in your relationship.

With Mark's guidance, you explore how your relationship problems began and why they escalated. You also learn how each person's individual opinions, values, skills, and habits affect the relationship.

Each person gains a better understanding of how their past experiences and thinking patterns affect the way they interact with their partner. They learn the skills needed to solve the underlying problem in the process.  

What type of therapy is used during relationship counseling?

Mark has training and experience in many therapeutic techniques. The approach he chooses depends on your challenges and goals. 

Some types of counseling resemble a free-flowing conversation guided by questions and insight from Mark. Other types follow a structured format, helping you identify specific thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that occur during your daily routine.

No matter which type of therapy you use, Mark focuses on strengthening your relationship while solving the problems that led you to seek help.
