Most couples arrive in our offices with major conflicts after being in a relationship for a short time, years or even decades. What once had been a loving relationship is now characterized by irreconcilable differences in their beliefs about financial decisions, physical intimacy, contacts with relatives, and even how to load the dishwasher. Change will take time.
Realistic expectations start with effective communication. This is where Foundation Counseling’s expertise comes in as one of the most prominent groups of counselors in the state of Texas. We also focus on the importance of starting therapy before the relationship crosses a bridge too far. In other words, we help couples with preventative counseling as well.
Couples tend to believe that the therapist’s job is to “fix” their partner. Many couples are skeptical about whether therapy will work. In the first session, each needs to understand that they are both good people.However, their patterns of communication have created daily distancing habits, isolating the other person to some degree.
