Couples Counseling Arkansas

Couples Counseling Also Known As Marriage Counseling

Couples Counseling Arkansas: If you are struggling with dissatisfaction in your marriage or relationship, we understand how difficult that can be.

You might be facing conflict, hurt, betrayal or feeling stuck. You might be tired of feeling so alone and disconnected as a couple and want to find practical and lasting ways to reclaim your intimacy and love for one another.

Romantic relationships are hard work. The most recent research shows that the average couple is unhappy for SIX YEARS before seeking couples counseling. In relationships, people will often avoid taking action until things have become much more serious and may even be beyond repair. With Arkansas having one of the highest divorce rates in the nation, getting effective couples counseling in Northwest Arkansas is very important.

Could you benefit from couples counseling?

Are You Experiencing The Following?

  • Lack of communication
  • Lack of intimacy
  • Being harsh with each other
  • Feeling like your marriage is “in a rut”
  • Lack of spontaneity
  • Lack of “special times together”
  • Feeling like you “lost your best friend”
  • Not knowing who your significant other is anymore

The disengaged couple is actually at the highest risk for divorce. In recent studies, 80% of men and women reported gradually growing apart, losing a sense of closeness, and not feeling loved and appreciated as the main reasons for considering divorce. If you are in this place of feeling isolated and lonely, your relationship is in danger. Not because of what you are feeling, but because of what you are not feeling. Working together in couples therapy, we can sort through what contributed to the disengagement and learn how to express your feelings in a way that makes it easier for both you and your partner to reengage.

Perhaps you walk on eggshells around your partner, fearing that you might say or do something wrong that will result in a fight. You might even avoid speaking to your partner altogether, perhaps finding that it’s easier to live your life in silence than it is to risk having yet another misunderstandingIf you’re part of a relationship in distress, you may feel that there’s no way out of your problems.
