Restore Love & Connection
Get Your Relationship Back
In any long-term partnership, it's inevitable that conflicts and challenges will come up.
Couples counseling helps partners to better understand and navigate the complex dynamics of their relationship.
It provides a safe and supportive space for couples to communicate openly and honestly with one another, and to identify and address underlying issues that may be causing conflict or distance in their relationship.
Communication breakdowns, conflict, or lost trust can be difficult to repair on your own
In a relationship it's easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget to make time for each other and to nurture your bond. But without that attention and care, relationships can start to feel stale and disconnected.
When the disconnection continues for too long it can turn into consistent conflict that doesn't ever get fully resolved. Partners misunderstand each other's intentions - one partner may feel the other is always on the attack, or the other can feel abandoned when their partner won't communicate.
Couples counseling can be a lifeline, providing the guidance and support you need to get back on track and feel closer. It's an investment in your future happiness and well-being as a couple. Don't be afraid to take the first step and ask for support. You deserve to have the love and connection you want and deserve.
Marla Mathisen, Sagely Counseling's clinical director, discusses the struggle couples face and the beauty of reconnection.
"Ultimately, to know your partner has your back, you can face the world, whatever problems come your way."

How is Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy different?
When it comes to marriage counseling, emotionally focused therapy (EFT) is a game-changer. EFT recognizes that our emotions are at the heart of our relationships, and that by better understanding and managing our emotions, we can create deeper, more meaningful connections with our partners.
In EFT, couples work with a trained therapist to identify and express their emotional needs and to learn how to respond to their partner's emotional states in a supportive and caring way. Through structured conversations and exercises, couples can learn to recognize and validate each other's emotions, and to find new ways of expressing their love and support for one another.
So if you're feeling stuck or disconnected in your relationship, don't be afraid to reach out for help. Marriage counseling with an EFT focus could be exactly what you need to get back on track and feel closer to your partner. Don't be afraid to take the first step and ask for support. You deserve to have the love and connection you truly desire.
