Couples Therapy in Austin, Texas
During a relationship, couples can encounter several types of problems triggered by anger, arrogance, finances, infidelity, jealousy, pride, or poor communication. When harmful patterns or problems like these arise, couples may seek assistance from a therapist that specializes in couples therapy in Austin.
At Louis Laves-Webb & Associates, our couples counseling sessions work with both partners to establish an objective view of the relationship. Our Austin couples therapists are highly trained to provide unbiased support and strive to help couples modify harmful behavior, improve communication, and encourage intimacy. As the couples therapy sessions progress, partners can expect to learn to take equal responsibility for the relationship’s problems, rather than place blame on the other party. They will also increase their awareness of what they bring to the table and learn to communicate about their beliefs, behaviors, and feelings. By acquiring these problem solving skills, couples can truly benefit and maintain the benefits of counseling long after they have stopped attending relationship therapy.
Strengthen Your Relationship with Couples Therapy
If your relationship is struggling, you may feel lonely and confused about how you got to that point. While dating may have been effortless in the beginning, arguments, disagreements and emotional avoidance may have affected the quality of your relationship. If you find yourself in a relationship with constant arguments or if you avoid having important conversations to further prevent arguing, consider couples counseling. Relationship counseling can help strengthen your partnership by providing both parties with strategies for communicating more effectively, increasing intimacy, and decreasing emotional avoidance.
