One of the great joys in life is a happy, committed relationship. But one of the most difficult struggles can be when your marriage starts to crumble. When there are problems in your relationship, the stress can affect you in nearly every part of your life, and when it does, it can be beneficial to start meeting regularly with a Long Island Marriage Counselor.
When to Contact a Marriage Counselor in Long Island
Many marriages go through their ups and downs, but in some cases the downs can become too overwhelming. Common issues that arise in marriage include:
- Breakdown in trust
- Problems with communication
- Issues with money or lifestyles
- Lack of mutual goals
- Trouble maintaining relationship changes
Couples may find that they fight often, or that they are consistently stressed over minor things, or that they are simply walking on eggshells, already defensive and waiting for the next argument. Some marriages go through massive trust issues, such as infidelity, while others simply erode over time when they aren’t being tended to effectively by both parties.
From the moment you feel like your relationship could use some help, it’s a good idea to contact a local marriage counselor. As a marriage counselor in Long Island – one with offices in Garden City and Lawrence, NY, serving additional areas including Rockville Centre, Levittown, Merrick, and all of Nassau County – I’ve found that there is no wrong time to seek out a marriage counselor.
Many of my patients are in healthy marriages but need guidance to continue towards a successful path. Others are on the verge of divorce or trying to overcome infidelity. The role of a marriage counselor isn’t to simply fix every marriage, but to help achieve clarity and hopefully build a stronger foundation for trust and happiness so that the marriage can withstand any challenges thrown its way.
That’s what we do in my marriage therapy sessions. We focus not only on the problems that you are struggling with, but also how you can rebuild trust and contentment as a couple, and find mutually beneficial goals, activities, and communication strategies to get you on the right path towards rebuilding your relationship.
