Learn How Therapy Can Help

Family is the one type of relationship you can’t choose. And as often as they are full of love, it is just as easy for opposition and conflict to arise. Family therapy in Philadelphia welcomes all sizes and types of families. We can help your family adjust to new situations such as grief or death of a loved one, navigate a mental illness, handle interpersonal conflict, or manage big changes like a move or chronic illness.

No relationship is perfect; we’re all human after all! Don’t let your mistakes get in the way of a happy, fulfilling relationship. Couples therapy in Philadelphia gives you the tools to navigate tension, work through disagreements, and heal from previous hurts. Couples therapy is a great option for new partners, couples working through conflict, or couples who want to take the next step in their relationship.

Marriage counseling can be for newlyweds, yet-to-be wed, and couples who have been married for years. Building a life is hard, and building a life with another person can be even harder. But, it’s also incredibly rewarding. Marriage Counseling in Philadelphia helps you trust each other by teaching you how to manage high emotions, work through conflict, and sync your lives so you are building each other up.

Navigating a co-parenting relationship can be difficult, especially if you aren’t well equipped. Co-parenting counseling in Philadelphia prepares you for any problem that can come your way. Co-parenting counseling teaches you how to manage conflict, work through any previous hurt, and build excitement for the future with your fellow co-parent.

The richness of relationships isn’t just found in romantic or familial ties; your friends, coworkers, classmates, and the like are all equally as important. If you are looking for individual therapy for relationship issues, this is a great option. Our licensed relationship therapists can help you build healthy relationship habits, unlearn toxic behaviors, and dive deep into the dynamics of your relationships.

When to Seek Relationship Counseling

Conflict alone is not reason to panic. Sometimes, conflict in a relationship can even be healthy. Our relationship counselors in Philadelphia see people for reasons big and small, but recommend you seek a relationship therapist if:

  • You are navigating a stressful change
  • The same argument or conflict keeps popping up
  • You find it difficult to honestly express emotions to one another
  • There are patterns of withdrawal, criticism, or contempt
  • You are healing from substance abuse, cheating, or other hurt
  • The conflict in your relationship is negatively impacting your life
  • You want to support one another with physical or mental health issues

How Can Relationship Counseling Help Me?

None of us are perfect, especially in our relationships. Relationship therapy is a way to grow individually, so that you can show up healthier in your relationships. Lifebulb employs the best relationship counselors in Philadelphia, and they can help you:

  • Develop strong, healthy communication
  • Build trust and compassion
  • Heal from past traumas
  • Work through negative or destructive habits
  • Get to know your loved ones on a deeper level
  • Cultivate love, respect, and appreciate for one another
  • Plan for a future that you’re all excited about
  • Learn healthy coping skills for when tensions inevitably rise again

Therapy Strategies for Relationships

Remember that the goal for relationship therapy isn’t to prevent any and all conflict. Conflict is natural. The best relationship counselors in Philadelphia will help you learn how to healthily manage conflict in a way that is beneficial and reduces harm. To do this, they might use relationship therapy strategies such as:

Dynamic interpersonal therapy

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy explores how previous relationships have impacted who we are today and how we think, feel, and behave. This in turn can inform us how we interact with our current relationships. We all have baggage, and by choosing to proactively identify and work through it, we are saving our future and present relationships a lot of stress.

Emotionally-Focused Therapy

Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT) is effective for about 75% of couples who engage in it. EFT teaches that all emotions tell us something. It helps us approach, accept, tolerate, and understand our emotions with the end goal of meeting our needs. Philadelphia relationship counselors use emotionally-focused therapy to help people who feel emotionally unfulfilled or confused in their relationships.

Imago Therapy

Tips for Strengthening Your Relationships

Relationships are constantly evolving and need frequent maintenance. Relationship therapy in Philadelphia can give you the tools you need to connect in ways that are healthy and authentic, but it’s just as important to apply those tools in your day-to-day life. A few tips our expert relationship therapists recommend include:

  • Engage in your own hobbies—You are an individual before you are in a relationship. Take the time to pour into yourself and you’ll find you have more to give later on.
  • Spend quality time with one another—Pick an activity you all enjoy and do it together. Building happy memories will help you when conflict arises.
  • Remember the good times—Conflict will come, it’s inevitable. Protect your relationship by remembering the happy times.
  • Do something new—Sometimes conflict in relationships happens because we get too complacent in them. By physically going out and doing something different and exciting together, you’re breaking your idea of what is possible within the relationship.
  • Practice the small things—Relationships don’t need huge gestures. Take the time to do an extra chore, tell them something you love about them, or bring them their favorite food. Little tokens of appreciation will help in feeling loved and cared for.
