Thrive Boston Couples Counseling: It's Never too Early (or Late)

Whether your relationship is in trouble, or you just want to protect a good thing, couples counseling can help. Call to schedule your first appointment: 617-395-5806.

Taking the time to consider how couples counseling could positively impact your relationship is one of the best uses of the day’s 1,440 minutes. At this moment, you and your significant other could be incredibly happy. Or, perhaps you were at one point, but now things have become strained. It's OK. You're not alone. Every relationship goes through seasons: summers and winters, easy times and hard times, good times and challenging times where everything you thought you knew and loved seems to be crashing around you.

"Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air. The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands."

- Amy Poehler, comedian

Today, almost 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. That is nearly 2,400 divorces each day. Even higher is the number of committed relationships that end up in "emotional divorce." With emotional divorce, the couple is still together, technically, but each partner is heading in a different direction.

Maybe your relationship is like that of George and Dana

George and Dana started dating in college, not long after arriving for their freshman year, and they were married only months after graduation. Dana is now an incredibly successful entrepreneur, and most of her days are spent focused on work. George also loves his job at the university they attended, and he spends time with his work friends whenever Dana is busy (which is most of the time). Fast-forward 15 years, and the only things they seem to have in common are their two children. The brief moments they spend together are either completely silent or used to discuss household upkeep.

Perhaps your relationship is similar Stephanie and Carl’s

Carl took up biking to shed what he jokingly calls his "baby weight"—the pounds he added when Stephanie was pregnant. As time progressed, he became more and more serious about his pastime, eventually signing up for several races. Training takes up much of his time, and while his family is supportive, they would like to spend time with him, not on the sidelines. At home, Carl is always distracted, either reading articles about biking or texting his cycling friends.

Are you satisfied with the current state of your relationship?

Whether your relationship is brand new or ages old, you cannot expect things to go well without taking action, without practice. On cruise control, relationships become stuck or are swept away.

Are you ready to turn off cruise control? Are you willing to try new, proactive techniques for communication and connection? If so, scheduling couples counseling may be what your relationship needs.

The professionals at Thrive Boston Couples Counseling can help equip you and your significant other with the necessary tools for getting where you want to go and having the best time possible along the way.

Why Do People Pursue Couples Counseling?

Why do so many good relationships seem to break apart over time? There is no one answer, but relationships today face a multitude of pressures and challenges.

These can include:

  1. Communication problems
  2. Anger issues
  3. Dependency or co-dependency
  4. Jealousy
  5. Broken trust
  6. Painful pasts (before the relationship began)
  7. Cheating or adultery
  8. Parenting challenges
  9. Fear or uncertainty about the relationship's future

These are just a few of the common troubles that can cause serious relational problems. Experienced counselors know how to work through these and resolve them. Your relationship might even be on solid ground, but you want to bullet-proof your marriage or romantic partnership. Even then, the professionals Thrive Boston Couples Counseling can help.
