Beginning a new relationship, for the most part, is with the intent of finding a partner to share your life with. When a couple finds themselves wondering what makes being together so difficult, it unfortunately may lead to the end of their relationship. The heartache of what happens when relationships fall apart can be immense. The pain that the couple, children, friends, and their extended family experiences are often similar to the grieving process and can have life long ramifications.
There are times when relationships are so toxic, that it is not healthy to continue. However, for many relationships, when both parties are willing to work towards developing healthier interactions and are given tools to succeed, change for the better is inevitable. The process of change takes time and work and our counselors at HOPE are here to guide you through that process.
The counselors at HOPE are passionate about helping couples and families heal from emotional conflict and find means for a peaceful and loving home. When there are children involved, our staff is cognizant of how the relationship between the couple has a high impact on the mental health of their children.
We are committed to working with many dynamics of a couple’s relationship including:
- stages of relationships and discovering how to successfully master a stage or how to heal from unmet needs during a previous stage
- individual personalities that are compatible or in opposition
- shared values and beliefs or conflict in core values and finding common ground
- individual struggles such as medical or mental illnesses that impact the relationship
- grief and loss
- adjustment issues
- family of origin issues that may not have been resolved and are brought into the relationship
- developing coping skills that aides in withstanding trials and stressors
