Do you ever find yourself wondering about this so-called “Happily Ever After” place?
You’re not alone!
Many of us learn that dating and marriage are much different in reality than appears on television, or in Disney movies.
Most couples report that they struggle in their relationship, and yet, it’s hard to know what to do about it. Everyone else seems so happy, especially on Facebook. There are thousands of books available about relationships and love, but where do you start? Like many people, you might want to seek help from a pastor or other mentor, but do you really want to open up about your sex life with someone you see all the time?
It’s easy to bury your head in the sand. The average couple waits 7 years after first feeling frustrated before seeking help. 7 years!
At Omaha Psychotherapy we believe that couples therapy is the best place to work on this stuff. We also believe that seeking support for your primary relationship is the best thing you can do for yourself, your partner, and any children or potential future children. It’s the ultimate gift. There is NO shame in seeking support.
We have lots of experience (personal and professional), training, and resources in helping couples get to a better place. While working on your relationship IS hard, it can also be fun.
We believe that love should be given a chance, and that most relationships can be saved. And when everyone involved agrees that it might be best to part ways, we can help you do that in a healthy way as well. Our approach towards couples therapy is not only about solving problems and improving communication, but also about helping couples create new relationships where each person feels heard and respected.
Connection with others is what makes life meaningful and worth living. We all know how much joy relationships with others can bring. Giving and receiving love is one of life’s greatest pleasures.
We don’t think anyone is born with the skills to be a perfect life partner. Marriage, like all types of relationships, takes a lot of work. It’s not easy, but we believe that there are certain tools and skills that people can learn to use to become better partners and to be happier and more fulfilled in the relationship.
Here are examples of couples we’ve successfully worked with:
- Couples who are newly dating who want to learn better communication skills
- Couples who are engaged or thinking about taking the next step who want to do premarital counseling
- Couples who are newly married who want to work through issues with family boundaries or financial issues
- Couples who are struggling with sex and intimacy
- Couples who are considering divorce or separation
- Couples where infidelity has occurred
- Couples who are struggling with parenting issues
- Couples where one partner has been recently diagnosed with an illness
- Couples where there might be some Narcissism or Co-dependency at play
- Couples who are gay or lesbian
In couples counseling each partner has an opportunity to be heard and to share wants, needs and desires. New communication skills and tools are learned and practiced. Healthy boundaries are created. Shared goals are identified. Relationships are strengthened and individuals feel heard, respected, and understood.
