Do you or your partner struggle in your marriage? Do you want to go back to the good old times when you both were madly in love with each other? Then marriage counseling is the right answer for you!
Many of use, spend tons of time and energy on finding our “soulmate”. We have high expectations about how love must feel like, and if those expectations are not met, we feel disappointed, betrayed and problems arise. However, we as individuals have different expectations and values and those often clash into marriage.
Marriage therapy will help you and your significant other to identify where your expectations clash and improve the overall quality of your relationship. The treatment can help you make thoughtful resolutions concerning restoring and developing your connection.
You feel that you’ve grown apart
Unfortunately, after years of marriage, some couples grow apart from each other. They no longer take the time to engage in conversations and rather live as roommates instead of lovers.
When life happens, couples often forget what drew them together in the first place, why they fell in love, and how happy they felt at the beginning of their relationship. If you running your household together but have lost your connection and therapy you might benefit from marriage counseling.
You argue. A lot.
Some relationships handle conflict difficult. Some confront each other, some become passive-aggressive, and others just ignore the situation as soon as it gets a little heated. Big scandals always leave hurt feelings and tears behind and are very destructive for your relationship.
Conflicts happen in any type of relationship (not just romantic) but the most important thing is to learn how to handle them. Marriage therapy will teach you how to handle disagreements in a healthy way – by being polite and respectful toward your spouse.
You often argue about finances
Money is one of the common problems in relationships. Finances (or lack of them) can create tension and evoke strong negative emotions such as anger, envy or even anxiety in your marriage. Oftentimes our relationship with money is dictated by past experience or what we have witnessed growing up in our household.
Marriage counseling will help you create a positive relationship with money and the way it affects your life.
Some of you has been unfaithful
Another common problem in marriage is infidelity. In fact, study shows that 15% of married women and 25% of married men had an extramarital affair.
If you both want to repair your marriage after someones’ infidelity, you need to try marriage counseling.
Your love life is absent
A study shows that 47% of the participants gave the absence of love and intimacy as the main reason to divorce their spouse. Some couples experience a decrease in their sex life, some are not even hugging and kissing anymore.
I know that this subject is sensitive, and it can be difficult to open up about problems in their intimate life, but marriage therapy can help you guide the conversation and open up to your spouse about it.
Marriage is the oldest institution and the problems that come with it are far from new
Hi, I’m Lia Huynh. I’m a professional Milpitas and San Jose Marriage Therapist who has helped hundreds of married couples to restore their trust, feel closer to each other, and build better communication.
I actually grew up in a divorced family and as a result, I never really had good role models for marriage. I decided that I was going to learn as much as I could, rethink my belief and become the best version of myself for the person I’ll meet. I read and researched, did my own work on myself, and found others who I could look up to and emulate in my own marriage. As a result, I am passionate about helping couples have successful marriages where there is love and intimacy.
Let me answer the hottest question surrounding the topic.
I am afraid that you’ll take my spouse’s side.
My only purpose is to remove the gap between you and your partner. I never take sides. Instead, I consider each of your thoughts and feelings equally. My main goal is to encourage you two to understand each other better and see your points of view.
It does not mean that I disregard infidelity, abuse, or addiction. If you are struggling with some of these problems, the first step to take is to destroy the harmful habits. A strong marriage leans on trust, loyalty, and good physical and mental health.
I’m afraid that you’ll judge me
I’ll never judge you. I recognize that everyone has a story and a life journey. My approach is affirming and strengths-based. It is pointed towards assisting people to change, not making them feel embarrassed and unworthy to be happy.
I appreciate each person I meet and I have full respect and admiration for who they truly are. My mission is to embrace and support people and show them the path to happiness.
