Compassionate Marriage Counseling in New Orleans
Are you looking for marriage counseling or couples counseling in the New Orleans area? If you are, that’s OK. You are not alone.
Sometimes “happily ever after” doesn’t look like what you, your spouse, or your partner originally envisioned. And the truth is, there’s no wonder why there’s a difference between your initial expectations and your current reality!
During the wedding planning stage, you and your spouse were anticipating living the rest of your lives together at the height of excitement in your relationship. But after you said “I do” and the honeymoon phase ended, real life set in.
For example, you might be experiencing stress from work, be so busy raising children that you have a hard time focusing on your relationship, or be worried about your family’s finances.
While all of these marriage and relationship stressors are normal, they’re also a good reason to meet with one of our marriage counselors to help focus on your relationship with your spouse, reprioritize your lives together, and learn better communication skills. For some, marriage counseling is an absolute must after a marriage crisis, such as a spouse or partner who is dealing with an addiction or one who has been unfaithful.

What You Can Expect
When you come to our practice for marriage counseling services, you can expect to be matched with a licensed professional counselor who has experience working with married couples and wants to see your marriage succeed. He or she will work diligently to get to know you and your spouse and build a rapport so you feel comfortable discussing the stressors in your relationship. You can also expect your couples counselor to be impartial. Your marriage counselor isn’t in the counseling room to pick a side between the two of you. Rather, your counselor will help facilitate a healthy dialogue between you and your spouse, share proven steps for resolving marital crises and rebuilding trust in a marriage, and teach you both how to better understand each other and communicate with one another. In some cases, your couples counselor may feel that you and your spouse will also benefit from individual counseling with a licensed therapist, in addition to marriage counseling. In this case, your couples counselor can refer each of you to licensed professional counselors in our practice, so you can begin individual counseling. If you, your spouse, or your marriage counselor feel it’s necessary, we can also refer you to a licensed psychotherapist or Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the Greater New Orleans, Metairie, or Kenner area. Rest assured, everything you and your spouse say during your couples therapy session will stay within the walls of your counseling room. Our marriage counselors only discuss your sessions with a third party if you have both given us your written consent to discuss your case.
