Couples Therapy & Marriage Counseling

We all know that healthy and happy relationships are important, but it can be tough to maintain them. When communication starts to suffer, it’s easy for things to spiral out of control. You’re always fighting and before you know it, your relationship is on the rocks. You might not know what to do or how things should work and end up feeling frustrated with each other for not being able to fix the problem themselves – but this doesn’t have to be true!

The therapy sessions are beneficial for both partners, as they can help eliminate problems such as trust issues and infidelity. They could also relieve anger in a relationship or an inability to communicate easily with your partner because of anxiety about how they feel towards you.

The Better You Institute offers couples therapy to help you get your relationship back on track. We’ll help you rebuild those cracks in your foundation so your relationship can thrive! With our help, you’ll learn to communicate better and understand each other’s needs.

Working together will help both parties better understand themselves, so any issues within future interactions don’t come as a surprise and you have the tools to deal with them.

The best way to resolve a fight with your family is through therapy. Family therapy allows family members to share their thoughts and feelings in a safe, supportive environment. The goal is always towards healing past wounds and establishing stronger foundations that will help guide future interactions between all parties involved so they can better understand each other’s perspective while working together toward solving problems or achieving goals.

Grief Therapy

Grief is a common & natural response to the loss of a loved one, and it can take time to work through the pain and sadness that come with it. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed after a loss. You might be lost and not know where to start or what to do next. The pain and sadness can be overwhelming, and it may feel like you’ll never be happy again. But moving forward after a loss is possible—you must be ready.

If you’re feeling ready, it can be helpful to talk with a professional who has experience helping people work through a loss. Professional counseling is an excellent way of getting the support and resources you need to start rebuilding your life.

If you’re feeling numb or dissociated from your surroundings, it’s important to take a step back and assess what might be happening.
