    NYC Couples & Marriage Counseling

    Is your relationship or marriage struggling?

    You aren’t alone. Conflict is inevitable within intimate relationships. Sometimes, the issues at hand become difficult to navigate and overcome. You may feel like you and your partner are drifting away, or you may struggle to communicate effectively within your relationship. Maybe, it even feels like your relationship is failing, and it has become hard to remember days that were free of conflict with your partner.

    You don’t need to “throw in the towel” or feel hopeless about your circumstance. Our team of counselors is prepared to provide you solution-focused tactics to triumph over the hurdles in your relationship.

    We are happy to meet with you, through in-person or online counseling, to identify and address the issues that cause strife in your relationship.

    What other kinds of issues does couple’s counseling address?

    Couple’s counseling can successfully help you tackle several issues within your relationship. These concerns may include:

    • Addiction/partner addiction support
    • Achieving work, family, and life balance
    • Blended Families
    • Chronic Illness
    • Divorce
    • Extended family
    • Infidelity/cheating
    • Intimacy conflict
    • Mental illness
    • Premarital counseling

    Marital conflict can feel isolating, but it is important to remember that most marriages struggle with one of these issues at some point during the duration of the relationship. The important thing is that you don’t need to suffer alone, or lose hope!

    Our psychotherapists are trained to help couples through the issues that have been previously mentioned. Our eclectic approach is successful and driven by research. We have the best psychotherapists in the NY area for marriage and relationship support!

    Almost All Couples Experience Conflict

    Conflict is natural in an intimate relationship. A successful relationship thrives, however, when both partners are open about the conflict, making an effort to work through troubles and resolve the conflict in a healthy way.
    Navigating difficulties can be isolating, however, and conflict can quickly seem insurmountable alone. No matter what your grievances are with your partner, there is a reason why you got together, and a love that has not been lost, but perhaps hidden from view.
    With the right therapist from Eclectic Psychotherapy Group, you don’t have to navigate the tough issues alone. We can help you work through any relationship issue with a research-driven, custom-tailored treatment approach.

    Couples Counseling Can Alleviate Your Concerns

    Counseling has been proven successful in helping couples tackle many areas of marital concerns.
    These concerns may include, but are not limited to the following:
    – Addiction and addiction support
    – Family life balance
    – Chronic illnesses and support
    – Conflict in intimacy
    – Divorce or separation discussions
    – Infidelity and cheating
    – Extended family grievances
    At Eclectic Psychotherapy Group, we believe that every relationship is worth saving.
    Couples like you deserve help even before marriage, which is why we offer premarital couples counseling. In these counseling sessions, couples will work towards resolving conflict with the help of one of our trained therapists.

    Marriage Counseling Staten Island – Rebuild Your Connection

    There are many reasons why couples come to therapy together, but at the core, there is an issue that needs to be resolved, often emotionally, between two people. These problems can drive a wedge into your relationship, making you feel like you’ve lost touch with your partner.

    With marriage counseling, Staten Island couples can rebuild their connection to each other once again. Contact us today to see how we can help you and your partner resolve your issues and correct the path of your relationship.

    Every Couple Needs Something Different

    We believe that no treatment is one-size-fits-all, and this applies to couples as well.
    A couple is traditionally considered a single unit; two individuals joining as one. When the needs of the individual are unmet, however, problems arise.
    Our approach to marriage and couples counseling is a two-fold approach.
    Couples will attend group therapy sessions so they can speak their peace and work on resolving conflict with the supervised help of a therapist.
    Secondarily, each person will attend individual therapy sessions to work on issues of a more personal nature that can help them better understand their partner and the nature of the relationship.

    What is the Success Rate of Marriage Counseling?

    Marriage counseling has a success rate of around 80%, according to a series of studies done on couples two and four years after their counseling sessions ended.
    At Eclectic Psychotherapy Group, we are dedicated to helping couples with research-driven techniques and treatment methods that not only resolve the symptoms of the conflict but help you and your partner address and work through the root cause.
    Marriage counseling works when both parties are willing to make a significant effort in repairing their relationship. It is a continued effort in any relationship to stay aware and considerate of the other individual while staying open and honest in communication.
    You can thrive in your relationship again. Contact us today to find out how we can help.

    How Long Will Marriage Counseling Take?

    The exact number of sessions or hours you will need at a marriage counselor will depend on the issues you bring into the therapist’s office, and how much progress you and your partner make in resolving the situation.
    There is no one-size-fits-all counseling session, and each treatment option is tailored to you and your partner’s needs. Often, this form of counseling takes part as group and individual therapy sessions to help couples work through tough times together, and on a personal level.

    Do Marriage Counselors Ever Recommend Divorce?

    No, marriage counselors at Eclectic Psychotherapy Group will not recommend divorce or separation, as it is not their call to make in a relationship. Direct recommendations are not the role of a counselor.
    It is important that the couple learns how to resolve past troubles and communicate openly with their significant other.

    Couples Therapy is Hard Work

    This type of therapy is often regarded as one of the hardest forms of therapy because you are working to resolve a conflict with a partner you feel strongly attached to emotionally.
    Often, couples resolve small conflicts, so it isn’t until the problem becomes larger than life that couples seek help from a therapist. It will require time and effort from both parties to be truly effective, but even individualized therapy can help increase satisfaction in a relationship.
