Couples Counseling in Charlotte, NC
Grow your relationship, together.
All couples struggle at times. Let our Charlotte couples counselors help you recover, deepen, and maintain your sense of connection.
Things used to be so much easier between you and your partner.
There wasn’t the constant bickering. The isolation. The walking on eggshells. Or that palpable sense of distance between the two of you.
Truth be told, those easier times weren’t all that long ago. But lately they’ve been feeling like a distant memory, and you’ve been asking yourself, Can we really turn this around?
At Modern Era Counseling, we believe that with the right help, you can!
(We can tell a part of you believes it’s possible, too. After all, you probably wouldn’t be here if not.)
Our Charlotte couples counselors work with couples in every stage of togetherness or separation. Whether you’re dating or married, long-term or newly together, we can help you recover, deepen, and maintain your sense of connection.
When does couples counseling make sense?
Many people think that couples counseling is only for couples in crisis. But truth is, our clients seek our help with a wide range of concerns. We certainly do work with couples whose relationships are in turmoil. But many of the couples we see come seeking just to “tune up” their relationships or talk through important topics with the help and guidance of a skilled marriage therapist.
Truth is, all relationships require ongoing work to maintain a strong, healthy connection, which is why we believe all couples can benefit from couples or marriage counseling.
If you and your partner are struggling due to...
- The rut of just “co-existing”
- Faulty communication patterns
- Infidelity and betrayal
- Incompatible sex drives
- Parenting conflicts or family-related stress
In couples therapy, we'll help you...
- Communicate more effectively
- Enhance trust and vulnerability
- Resolve roadblocks and conflicts
- Clarify priorities and needs
- Feel more satisfied and fulfilled
What can you expect from couples counseling at Modern Era?
At the outset of therapy, we listen closely to where you’re at as a couple. We want to hear what’s already working as well as what needs improving. We don’t “take sides” or play the “blame game,” because we start from the belief that you and your partner have each played a role in the challenges and concerns you’re bringing with you to couples therapy.
Next, we focus on helping you and your partner identify your respective needs and priorities, as well as any potential roadblocks, such as negative patterns of interaction or attachment insecurities, that may be getting in the way. We’ll also spend time identifying your communication styles and making any necessary changes to help you talk through and resolve conflict in a more productive manner.
Beyond helping you resolve the most current and pressing concerns in your relationship, it’s our goal to equip you with the necessary tools to navigate stress and conflict more productively moving forward—that is, outside of therapy.
Does Modern Era offer couples therapy for LGBT couples?
Yes, our couples therapists work with ALL couples! Sadly, we know that finding a qualified couples therapist who is both qualified and willing to work with LGBT couples is no easy feat. At Modern Era, we understand that same-sex couples face unique challenges, and we’re committed to providing you and your partner with a safe and affirming space to explore your concerns and strengthen your relationship.
Regardless of your sexual orientation, we’re committed to working collaboratively with you and your partner to identify your goals and develop strategies to help you achieve a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling relationship.
What makes couples therapy at Modern Era different?
A lot of counselors claim to work with couples, but only a small percentage receive any formal training in couples therapy. Marriage counseling is not the same as individual counseling, which is why doing effective work with couples requires a specialized skill set.
When it comes to relationships, the “small issues” can spiral out control in a hurry. If you’ve been wondering if couples or marriage counseling may be a good idea for your relationship—and if you’ve read this far, that’s likely you—we recommend being proactive.
