Couples Therapy in Denver, CO

Romantic relationships are rewarding and fulfilling, but they are also full of challenges and require a good deal of hard work. Keeping a relationship healthy and beneficial for both parties can be difficult, and it’s normal to feel frustrated when things get hard. 

When you and your partner face a challenge in your relationship, the key lies with your communication and whether or not you tackle that challenge together. There is no “I” in “couple,” and solving problems in your relationship will require effort from you both working together rather than turning away from each other. 

Sometimes, however, you might feel like no matter how hard you try, you and your partner are still struggling. When you feel like you’ve tried everything in your relationship and nothing has worked, we are here to help!

At the Counseling Center of Cherry Creek, we provide couples therapy in Cherry Creek, CO. If you and your spouse or partner are struggling to make it through bumps in your relationship, you can trust one of our caring couples counselors to help. To schedule an initial consultation with one of our therapists, please call us today at (720) 457-3342. 

Don’t Wait to Begin Couples Counseling 

It’s normal for your relationship to go through periodic ups and downs, but if your “lulls” are becoming more like the “norm,” it’s probably time to seek professional help.

In most cases, the earlier you start meeting with a couples therapist, the easier it will be to work through your problems and develop healthier coping skills to avoid new issues in the future. 

Unfortunately, so many people delay couples counseling out of fear, embarrassment, or shame. There is no reason to feel bad about going to counseling—you should feel great about the steps you’re taking to make your relationship better! 

Our therapy sessions are emotionally and physically safe spaces where you can express your feelings without fear of being judged. During your couples therapy sessions, we work hard to help you feel:

  • Accepted
  • Heard
  • Understood
  • Respected
  • Validated 
  • In control of your reactions and emotions 
  • Open-minded 

Our couples therapists recommend contacting our Denver counseling office at the beginning of your relationship problems rather than waiting until things get terrible. We want to help you and your partner get back on track, and that’s easier to do when you aren’t stuck in a rut from years of fighting or resentment. 

Research suggests that the average struggling couple waits around six years before they seek professional help from a licensed counselor. This means that the average couple spends six years having repetitive arguments, feeling upset and unsatisfied, and struggling to communicate with their partners. After years of using ineffective behaviors, some couples admit that they feel stuck and entirely unable to change.

Six years—or even six months—is far too long to struggle with your relationship and to feel like you can’t connect with your partner. If you are struggling as a couple, please don’t wait another day to call our licensed counselors. At the Counseling Center of Cherry Creek, we are here to help struggling couples learn to communicate healthily again. 

No Concern Is Too Small for Couples Therapy

At the Counseling Center of Cherry Creek, couples will come to us worried that their concerns are too minor or their questions too trivial. If your concerns or questions are affecting your relationship, then they are not too small! Different problems affect different people in different ways, which is why our licensed couples counselors will work with you if you are having thoughts such as:

  • I feel like we have the same argument all the time
  • I feel more like a roommate than a romantic partner 
  • I’m not sure I want to work on my relationship or marriage anymore
  • I am so angry at my partner for refusing to work on our relationship 
  • I am not sure I can forgive my partner after finding out they were having an affair
  • I feel scared that my partner may not love me anymore
  • I don’t know how to change our habits to make our relationship more successful 

One of the great things about couples therapy is that it provides an outlet and a place for you and your partner to have all sorts of discussions you may not have on your own. If the two of you keep having the same fight, chances are, you’re feeling stuck or focused on only a handful of topics. 

During couples counseling in Denver, your therapist will work with both of you and help guide the conversation in a more productive direction. We can ask questions or suggest topics for discussion that you might otherwise overlook. Couples counseling is about improving communication skills and learning to work through disagreements in a productive, healthy way.

The bottom line? If your problems are hurting your relationship and hindering your ability to love and respect your partner fully, they are not too small for therapy. To schedule an initial couples counseling session in Cherry Creek, CO, please call us today. 

Denver Couples Counseling Can Address Multiple Issues in Your Relationship 

If your relationship feels toxic, hurtful, strained, flat, or stuck, you may need a jump-start to move forward and feel love again. Couples counseling can often provide this jump-start and create a safe place where you and your partner can learn to communicate more effectively, grow greater intimacy, and breathe life back into your love connection. 

Couples counseling is not limited to helping in only one “area” of your relationship. If you and your partner have multiple struggles, that’s ok! Our Denver couples counselors can help you work through issues having to do with:

  • Mental health 
  • Physical intimacy, such as low sex drive or difficulty connecting
  • Money
  • Infertility
  • Relationships with in-laws and other family members
  • Stress in the workplace 
  • Raising children 

Even if you and your partner aren’t struggling with any of the more traditional areas mentioned above, you can still benefit from couples counseling in Cherry Creek. We offer counseling sessions to discuss all sorts of thought-provoking questions and subject matters, including:

  • What experiences have we had, both together and individually, that have shaped who we are and how we act in our relationship?
  • Are our goals and hopes for the future aligned? Do we feel like we’re headed in the same direction?
  • How important is it for us to spend quality time together? Are there ways we can better manage our time or things we can do to make sure our relationship is the priority?
  • Do we successfully share our household duties and chores? Do we both feel satisfied with the amount the other person contributes to making our home an excellent place to be?
  • Are small quirks or minor annoyances getting in the way of us appreciating each other and treasuring our relationship for what it is?

If you would like help working through these questions—or any others you may have about your relationship—don’t hesitate to contact our Cherry Creek, CO couples counseling office.
