couples counseling is a serviced provided by Your Story Counseling

Providing and receiving love, emotional reliability, relational safety, and the depth of authenticity in connection is as natural and complex a dynamic process as we can encounter. When we struggle as a couple, we also require a unique approach to understand better why we love the way we do. An understanding that sometimes betrays the sense of security we need in relationships and our family origins’ impact on our ability to participate and reciprocate a loving relationship. Often, a couple who commits to participating in couples counseling or therapy with authentic and open-heart experiences incredibly restore and heal in their relationship.

Our therapists specializing in supporting couples in couples counseling have incredible experiences of their own that create an immense capacity to knowingly join in the discovery of identifying pain, improving communication, and nurturing a healthy, balanced, and fortified relationship. Our couples experience understanding and healing by exploring the foundations of how they love, how they connect with their partner, their capacity for health connection, and where they share a sense of insecurity in their relationship. Additionally, an essential part of the reciprocal relation in couples counseling is learning about our partners and their stories.

By focusing on each person in the relationship and integrating their past and present experiences that uniquely shape their ability to love and be loved, a couple creates the best possible foundation to support and fortify them as they encounter future struggles. Contact us to learn more about group therapy and couples counseling Services.

If there is a particular concern/need that you or someone you love is experiencing but not list, we encourage you to contact us.
