    Couples Counseling

    Do you find that you and your partner are fighting more frequently than usual? Do you feel the love you once shared is diminishing? Are you feeling disconnected and distanced from each other? Do you feel your needs are not being met? Relationships are complex, and none of them are perfect. Every relationship has its ups and downs. Sometimes when in the midst of a slump in a relationship, it can be difficult to step back and gain perspective on the conflict and how it can be solved. Counseling may help. Couples counseling can provide you and your partner with the skills to gain perspective and feel heard so that your relationship can feel closer, more connected and more fulfilling.

    How can we feel better?

    At Greenwood Counseling Center we provide couples counseling to couples from throughout the Denver metropolitan area. We strive to help couples reclaim or build the life of passion, trust, understanding, and teamwork that they desire. By learning to communicate in a way that each partner feels heard and validated, disagreements become an opportunity to build the relationship as opposed to something that slowly destroys it.

    I just don’t know…

    “My partner is hesitant to seek help through couples counseling”

    Sometimes one partner has concerns about seeking help for fear it won’t work, it will get worse, or that the therapist will take sides. We strive to make sure each partner feels heard. we facilitate teamwork within the couple helping them find the words to express their feelings in a productive way that increases the bond in the relationship, as opposed to using unproductive communication that heightens defenses. Couples counseling helps partners identify the underlying emotions that are often masked by defensive communication. Nevertheless, in cases where someone’s partner is not willing to come to couples counseling, we will work with just one individual from the partnership to help them adjust their own communication, behavior and resulting emotions in an effort to impact change in the relationship.

    “We may be past the point of fixing our relationship, separation may be the best choice”

    Although many couples want to make every effort to resolve the problems in their relationship, there are times when both parties may agree that parting ways is the best option. When this happens, we will work with them in couples counseling to help them navigate the transition of separating in a way that is as amicable and peaceful as possible.

    “What if couples counseling makes our problems worse, it may make us fight more or one of us might feel attacked?”

    Often the initial sessions in couples counseling can stir up some conflict and emotions that have been tender subjects for both parties. Although this is uncomfortable, it is only temporary as we begin the work toward creating better understanding and support within the relationship. The therapists at our Counseling Center strive to provide an environment of balance and understanding for both parties as they work toward reclaiming the connection and love that they once experienced in their relationship.
