Couples face many complex challenges in today’s rapidly changing world. Problems surrounding finances, childcare, communication, work schedules, intimacy, and household duties are among the stressors that commonly impact modern couples. Without the help of an outside perspective, once-loving relationships can deteriorate to the breaking point.
Effective couples counseling focuses on developing better listening and communication skills that can be used in many daily life situations. This often involves couples doing homework exercises based on insights gained during counseling sessions. Though not always an easy process, this work can significantly improve the relationship quality for both partners. (And also improve the wellbeing of any children at home.)
