RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING


Helping Couples of all Types Thrive

There was a time when you and your partner could have conquered the world together. But recently, you feel like you’re spending more time battling each other than taking on life’s challenges.

You were that couple once; inseparable, passionate and envied by all your friends. You struck the balance of supporting each other’s individual dreams and passions, while being partners and always considering the “We” before the “I”. The power couple who let nothing stand in their way.

Looking at the photos today, it seems like only a memory of days gone by. It’s heartbreaking to see how different your relationship has become. Or worse yet, the pain has given way to indifference. This wasn’t supposed to happen. Nothing was going to come between your love, and yet here you are.
Maybe you and your partner are feeling more like roommates than lovers and are looking for a way to put the spark back into your relationship. You know you still love each other but don’t know how to get that “in love” feeling back again.

You are not alone. The busyness of life and obligations that seem to have torn you apart do not have to. You can reconnect and feel the love you used to feel. Despite the many challenges that get in your way, you can learn better ways to communicate and show the admiration and appreciation that still exists in your relationship.

Acuity Counseling Can Help.

Couples counseling offers a unique space where you and your partner can feel safe to explore your relationship. With the help of a trained couples therapist, you can look at the barriers that are keeping you from having the connection you desire. Our goal is to facilitate open discussion about the obstacles in your relationship, hurt and resentments that have built over time and other concerns that prevent you from growing together and as individuals.

Therapies and Services our Counselors specialize within

Therapy is a collaborative process where you and your counselor work together to explore things in life that may not be working well. This is a uniquely safe space where you can truly be yourself, without fear of judgement. Where you can pause to breathe and focus on being your best self. Together, with your therapist, you identify areas for growth, learn better skills for handling your negative thoughts and feelings and implement changes to reach your goals for a better life. Counseling can help you to manage the symptoms that stand in the way of being happy, whether it be anxiety, depression or relational issues.
