To grow together, or grow apart?
Choosing to try marriage counseling is an important step. For come couples, this feels like a last resort, for others, its a preventive measure to avoid potential heartache in the future.
For some couples, there have been months and years of battling with disappointments, damaging sentiments, and smoldering emotions of hatred that makes marriage-counseling begin to seem like an only option. It is sad to think that someone with whom you wished to spend the rest of your life, you no longer wish to speak to ever again. Furthermore, the human condition tends to make us desperate to seek solutions only once the problems reach a level of urgency.
We are experts in re-establishing trust, helping you reconnect emotionally, helping you boost transparency, and helping you be close. Here at the Psychiatrists of D.C., we know how tough relationships can be. We as a team value the importance of staying positive, and its role in connecting.
Our marriage counselors are trained on helping you find the best way to set you on a great path. We pay attention to you, and our sessions are custom-made to cater to you and your situation. It is very important to pair yourself with a marriage counselor with whom you feel understands your plight, as you are much more likely to implement the strategies and techniques if this is the case.
Please know that our sessions can run from 1-3 sessions and can last up to 12 to 24 sessions depending on what you are seeking and where you are in your relationship.
We ask you to consider the family dynamic in the Western Tradition compared to the family dynamic of the Eastern tradition.
In the Western tradition, in America and in Europe, there is a greater focus on having financial stability and "succeeding". In the Eastern, or Asian, countries, the family dynamic tends to be the predominant focus of importance. How you get along with your parents and serve the community is crucial, and materialism isn't nearly as much of a priority.
Please realize that value system dictates how you spend your time and energy. What do you value? What does your partner value? Are they in line?
The techniques which our counselors utilize take into consideration so many factors. We have years of training to assist marriage partners in reconnecting. Our counselors use sound judgment to push forward and instruct the people towards the right habits to help them be empowered.
