Marriage counseling is available through teletherapy with Terri Dichiser at Take Charge, Inc. for couples who feel stressed by the different life COVID-19 has brought. Though couples are spending more time together and this may create new stressors, it’s also a great opportunity to strengthen the foundation of your relationship by starting marriage counseling.

The outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19) has our communities facing several rapid changes. There’s no doubt that many of these changes are putting pressure on all of us – professionally, personally, and our relationships, but it can be possible to experience positives in your marriage through these difficult times.

You and your partner are each individuals, with unique needs and desires, and the constant togetherness COVID-19 has forced on you has likely disrupted the routines and rhythms you’ve spent years developing together. This can cause friction in even the happiest marriages. What has always worked in the past may not be working now, and the patterns you’ve fallen into can become dysfunctional. If you are feeling like the strong relationship you’ve spent years crafting together is starting to come unraveled, marriage counseling can give you the tools to mend it.

Marriage counseling at Take Charge, Inc. uses Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) to help couples reconnect with each other. EFT is outcome researched therapy – EFT research shows that more than 70% of couples turned their relationship around from distressed (no matter how distressed) to happy in 15 – 20 sessions, and more than 90% of couples “significantly improved.” Terri helps couples recognize the patterns they may have established in their relationship and offers tools and strategies through EFT to break the negative patterns and build new habits for healthy communication. EFT can create a renewed sense of safety and security in your marriage.

Marriage counseling with Terri will teach partners to recognize and utilize opportunities to get to know each other in a different way. Many people are now working from home – this provides an insight into what your spouse does when they are at work. If a spouse sees that her husband spends most of his day talking to other people, she may realize why he’s not up for conversations every night. Communication is key when sheltering in place with your spouse.

Terri provides an atmosphere for couples to connect to one another, engage in pivotal conversation; listen to each other’s needs plus articulate your own needs to your partner while drawing them closer, all in clear, simple conversation where spouses feel in control about their deepest needs to feel connected and secure in the relationship.

Now is a great time to start marriage counseling, and really invest in your relationship with each other. For information about marriage counseling, call Take Charge, Inc. at (913) 239-8255. To schedule an appointment, click here.
