We Help Couples
At Magnolia Family Counseling, we see a variety of couples who find themselves not in a great place in their relationship. Often, these couples have been unhappy for what feels like a long time, and yet they just don’t know why.
Couples can feel at times like they just aren’t hearing each other. Neither side wants to be wrong. It can feel like you both love each other, but right now you seem to act as if you don’t like each other very much.
Marriage Counseling, or Couples Counseling, can provide a way for couples to better understand and resolve their conflicts.
Are you arguing a lot, maybe due to a lack of communication?
Are hateful things sometimes being said back & forth, even though you don’t really mean it?
Do you and your partner just feel like you don’t understand each other?
Most couples come to Magnolia Family Counseling because they are looking to heal their relationship and end the negativity. They come because they want to learn to communicate better, to improve themselves, and to be happy once again.
Our counselors at Magnolia Family Counseling are here to help guide you on that journey. We understand that every couple struggles in their relationship at some point in time. We help couples and individuals in any type of relationship by being understanding and by taking a non-judgmental approach in helping couples repair their relationship.
If you are looking for a way to get your relationship back on track, couples counseling is likely the solution you are looking for. Couples counseling can go by a few different names: couples therapy, or if you are married, marriage counseling or marriage therapy. We offer counseling to people who are married or have partners, those living together, those considering future commitments, and those who are dating. We also provide counseling to those no longer together, who wish to resolve their disagreements in order to be better co-parents or rekindle their relationship.
Couples counseling can be a short term process, where it may only take a few sessions to get your relationship back on track. Or couples counseling can last for several months, in cases where your relationship has sharply declined. Your counseling sessions can occur via 50 minute sessions anywhere from weekly to 2-4 times per month depending on your schedule.
