Make A Difference In Your Relationship With Couples Therapy

Do you feel like you’ve tried everything when it comes to your relationship but nothing seems to be working? Has the constant fighting, negative feelings, or emotional distance between you and your partner reached a level where it seems like you can’t seem to find any common ground? You’ve tried staying calm, doing couples activities, and reading all the self-help books you could find, but nothing seems to be working. It may be time to seek outside help. At ELEOS Psychology Center we understand the complexity of the relationship between partners, and we take pride in providing innovative Minneapolis couples therapy solutions.

Our couples therapists are ready to help you and your partner reconnect through research driven, custom tailored counseling practices. By providing the care, attention, and empathy needed to start on a path to happiness, our therapists will help you and your partner find the roots of the behaviors and emotions that are proving harmful to your relationship. In session your therapist will help you and your partner work on the building blocks of your relationship such as communication, intimacy, and emotional well being, while providing you with skills to use in-between sessions to help you keep your relationship’s recovery and growth on track.

The foundations of a healthy relationship that we teach at ELEOS Psychology Center are deeply rooted in compassion: compassion through the therapeutic relationship, compassion for one’s self, and compassion toward others. At ELEOS Psychology Center we offer a variety of couples therapy services including marital, premarital, and conflict counseling. Our therapists have the skills needed to tactfully guide you and your partner through any number of relationship strains such as divorce, infidelity, jealousy, addictions, communication issues, and pregnancy-related concerns and stressors.

Couples Therapy For All

Encountering trials in your marriage does not make you or your partner a failure – it makes you human. Each couple will go through rough times in their relationship; at ELEOS we know that it is not these trials that define a relationship, it is how you overcome them. It is never too late to seek therapy. Anyone in any stage of life can benefit from the insight and skills developed in therapy. Whether you and your partner are just starting your relationship, or you’ve been together for years, taking the time to assess your relationship will always prove beneficial.

When you come to ELEOS, you’ll work with our highly educated and empathetic therapists to identify the underlying problems that are causing your current relationship difficulties, because we know that a relationship isn’t one big thing, it’s lots of small things. We will work with you and your partner to recognize the root of your problems, and through a structured relationship, compassion, and evidence-based therapy, you and your partner will be able to work through, and past, the difficulties that are currently straining your relationship. At ELEOS, your couples therapist will be able to help the pair of you develop greater insight into who you are and how those roles factor into the difficulties you are facing.

Work Towards One Common Goal With Couples Therapy

Couples therapy is not restricted only to those who are already married or who are experiencing difficulties. We see couples come through our office for a variety of reasons such as communication issues or sexual dissatisfaction. One does not need to be married to receive the benefits of couples counseling.

Premarital Counseling

Quite frequently we work with couples with premarital challenges, ranging from family feuds to wedding stress. When you decide to take the next step in your relationship and become engaged, you’ll find yourself faced with quite a few new challenges that you hadn’t thought of. It can be easy for feelings to get hurt or for someone to feel as though their opinion isn’t being heard. When you’re dealing with personal subjects such as family, faith, and wealth emotions are sure to rise. Meshing two lives into one can produce a few bumps along the way, and having an unbiased third party to help you and your significant other navigate through this new intersection in life may be just what you need. We’ll help you and your partner learn to embrace your differences while working together to create a plan for your future.

Marital Counseling

Whether you’ve been married 10 years or 10 months, finding a harmonious middle ground to build or maintain your relationship upon can be difficult. At ELEOS Psychology Center our therapists will help you with divorce, infidelity, career aspirations, life views, conflict, or any other modern day relationship trials such as:

Blending Families

If you and your partner have a blended family or are planning on blending families that can be trying for all involved.

Social Media

In today’s modern age, social media can prove to be a serious stressor on relationships. If left unchecked, it can feel as though platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are getting in the way of real communication.

Mobile Communication

Do you ever get nervous about what and who your partner is texting? This is a concern that needs to be addressed from both sides. At ELEOS we’ll help you to figure out why you are feeling suspicious of your partner and we’ll help your partner become more aware of your concerns when it comes to texting.

Sexual Concerns

Finding sexual pleasure and satisfaction can be difficult. For some, they don’t know what to expect with their first sexual relationship and find themselves unable to voice their wants and needs. While others may have reached a plateau in their lasting relationship where they are no longer achieving satisfaction from their partner’s sexual attention. Don’t know how to discuss such a delicate matter with your partner? That’s what we’re here for!

Bringing Couples Back Together

Through a relatable and compassionate approach, we will help you uncover the strength and compassion that already exists within you. By helping you develop new skills, our custom therapy solutions will allow you and your partner to take your relationship to the next level. There’s no need to struggle alone. Sometimes getting the help of a friendly, impartial third party is exactly what you need. By calling us today you and your partner can start the healing process necessary to get your relationship back on track. ELEOS Psychology Center offers effective and comprehensive couples therapy options for those living in Minneapolis, St. Paul, St. Louis Park or anywhere around the Twin Cities.
