The “Couple’s” Resolution


By Regina Bright, Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Board Certified Sex Therapist

At the beginning of every year, millions of people make New Year’s resolutions. They often have individual goals such as lose weight, save money, eat healthy, get a better education, quit smoking, quit drinking, earn more money, change jobs, exercise regularly, or spend more time with their families. However, there is one resolution that isn’t heard, “let’s work on our relationship.” While it may not be spoken, couples with marital issues may be hoping that their relationship improves this year. As couple’s struggle with communication, their relationship becomes more strained.
This year, why not resolve to give yourself and your relationship a “special gift.” This will truly be the gift that keeps on giving; leaving you and your partner with a positive feeling throughout the year.  
Couple’s counseling helps clients rediscover their relationship while learning new ways to communicate more effectively. Working together with a trained therapist can help you become “unstuck” in your marital journey. This can lead to learning strategies that continually bring new life to your relationship.
