Couples, Relationship & Marriage Counseling / Therapy

Relationship and Couples Counseling / Therapy Are you struggling to communicate with a loved one?  Is there a growing emotional distance, or has there been a breakdown of trust? In life, we are often presented with challenging situations or scenarios and it can be beneficial to talk with an independent and non-judgmental third party. A licensed therapist will listen to the problems and help you overcome them and heal any fractured bonds.
The first step is to be honest about the underlying and root causes of the problem and identify where these internal and external stressors come from. Once healthy lines of communication are opened couples can begin to address these stresses and better strengthen their relationship. Working together with you and your partner, we will set measurable goals. As progress is made both clinically and at home, we will help you refine your goals and rediscover the links that first brought you together.
Relationships Working with a therapist can help you communicate ideas in a comfortable and pressure free environment by opening channels of communication and helping partners look at problems from other perspectives. At Naperville Behavioral Health we have experience working with a diverse background of couples with various ethnic, spiritual, sexual, and racial backgrounds. Often, we strongly suggest couples also receive individual counseling in addition to marriage/couples counseling.
