Couples Counseling in Mishawaka, Indianapolis and Chicago
It’s true that in the United States, divorce rates are on the rise, with as many as 50% of marriages ending in divorce. And for many people living in Mishawaka, Indianapolis and Chicago, navigating the ups and downs of life in a relationship is hard work.
For those of you suffering in silence, if your relationship or marriage is on the rocks and communication has broken down, it’s time to take some time to breathe. Many problems in a relationship or marriage that seem unfixable just need the help of a trained outside perspective. In fact, the best couples therapy doesn’t place strict codes of conduct or rules on a relationship dynamic but explores the tensions and strengths already in that relationship to come up with new ways of working and living together.
Dr. Erin Leonard, PhD. is an empathetic and understanding relationship therapist with over 20 years’ experience serving clients in Mishawaka, Indianapolis and Chicago. If you or your loved ones have been having difficulties in the context of an intimate relationship or marriage, maybe it’s time to try something new.
Will Therapy Help Save My Marriage? Marriage Counseling for Everyone
Whether you’ve been married two years or 25, every married couple will experience pressure on their relationship from time to time. Sometimes this can come from external events like the death of a family member or from the loss of a job, and sometimes this can come from the internal dynamics of the couple.
What might have worked at the beginning of a partnership becomes less effective several years in as the participants’ needs change. Or the pressures of finances or family take their toll on a marriage and cause communication to grind to a halt.
Whatever the cause, Dr. Erin Leonard, PhD. listens to the problems in your marriage or partnership and works to create an atmosphere of respect and trust. With that in place, both parties in the marriage can freely discuss their hopes and fears without fear of judgment from the other.
When you’re dealing with problems in an intimate relationship, the history you have with your partner is both your greatest asset and your largest liability. Sometimes it takes a third-party observer to sort out what is best left in the past and what will affect your marriage’s future.
