What Can Couples Therapy Help You With?

Couples therapy in Augusta can address a wide range of issues that couples may face. There is no problem too big or too small for our therapists. Some couples come to use to work through a specific conflict, but others just want to take their relationship to the next step. Whatever your reasons, we welcome you. Some common concerns that couples therapy can help with include:
Learn How Therapy Can Help

Couples therapy can help you navigate and balance the roles and responsibilities within your relationship, ensuring a fair and equitable division of labor. We can discuss the division of chores, childcare, decision-making, and more.

Financial stress can put a strain on any relationship. Couples therapy can provide strategies and tools to effectively communicate and manage financial challenges together, transition to shared finances, and work through conflicts in differing spending habits.

Couples therapy can help you explore and address any differences in beliefs and values, fostering a better understanding and respect for each other's perspectives. It’s important to talk about differing beliefs and values before they escalate into a conflict.

Planning for the future can sometimes lead to disagreements and conflicts. Couples therapy can assist in creating shared goals and developing a clear roadmap for your future together. We can discuss future plans for careers, families, and where you see yourself settling down.

Couples therapy provides a safe and supportive space to address issues related to sex and intimacy, helping couples improve their emotional and physical connection. Intimacy is an important aspect of the relationship, but it can be difficult to navigate on your own.

Couples therapy can help you navigate external challenges, such as the impact of work stress, life transitions, or family dynamics, on your relationship. Even the healthiest of relationships will falter with external stress. Learn how to lean on each other and find strength with couples counseling in Augusta.
