Marriage & Couples Counseling

family therapy

Is your relationship struggling right now?

Are you in a long-term relationship – married, engaged, or just dating – that’s just not going the way you wanted?

Probably you feel like your communication with each other needs a lot of work.You can’t seem to talk about anything without it turning into an argument.

Or maybe it’s one or two particular issues that keep blowing up that you don’t know how to resolve. You can’t agree on finances.  You can’t stand the way your partner talks to you. Your families are causing trouble in the relationship.

Sometimes couples don’t even have arguments – they just don’t talk anymore.You feel like roommates instead of romantic partners. The love is dying or dead. The sex isn’t there anymore. You want to feel attracted and excited about each other again, but don’t know how.

More than anything you want to have what you had in the beginning, when it was fun, satisfying, connected. It seems like things have gone way off track since then. You wonder if you can get it back.

If you can relate to any of these problems, help is available.You can see your marriage or relationship flourish again. You can experience the love you once had and the connection you always wanted.

Relationships can be restored.

Imagine your relationship without the constant fighting, the withdrawing, the lack of caring.  Imagine feeling like your partner is there to support to 100%.  It’s not so hard to envision – you were there once! At some point in your relationship, this was something you wanted to get up in the morning for.  And it can be again.

You want to communicate better – we can teach you how.

You want to feel cared about – we can help you make that happen.

You want to stop going through the same frustrating cycles you’ve been going through and haven’t been able to escape – we can help you achieve it.

How We Help You Fix Your Relationship

We’ll help you repair things the only way possible: one step at a time.

There’s no magic bullet in most situations. Your problems didn’t come up overnight, and they’re not going away overnight. Instead, we need to take a good look at where things are right now in your marriage or relationship and figure out what the problem really is.

The truth is, few people ever learned as children or adolescents what it takes to make a relationship work. Good relationships don’t happen by themselves – they happen by people making choices every day. Part of what we’ll do is help you see what you’re doing that isn’t working, and offer ways to do things differently.

You’ll develop skills and tools to use in your relationship that will work to build it up instead of tear it down.

You’ll learn new ways of looking at things that will help you better understand your partner and yourself.

You’ll find strengths inside yourselves you didn’t know existed and leverage them to make this relationship work.

Our counselors will support you throughout this process, not criticize and put you down. We’re not here to judge you; we’re just here to help you get what you want, whether it’s the relationship you always dreamed of, or the clarity to say that this relationship isn’t going to work.

Couples counseling/marriage counseling can help you turn things around. We have worked with hundreds of couples to improve communication, restore harmony, build trust, resolve conflicts, and address the wide range of problems people come to us with. Whether it is the small day-to-day problems of who takes out the trash, or major upheavals like the revelation of an affair, we can help to save, repair, and refresh your relationships, as we’ve done for many others. We’d love for you to be our next success story and walk out of our office feeling like you got back the relationship you always wanted.

George Vaillant, former director of the longest-running study of human development in recorded history, has shared a five-word summation of what nearly a century’s worth of data have shown: “Happiness is love. Full stop.”We’re inclined to agree. Let us help you get there too. Get in touch with us today by e-mailing, calling/texting 443-598-2821 or using the form below for more information on how you can get started changing your relationship for the better.

Couples Counseling in Action

family conflict

Mary and Earl have been married for three years. They have never had a fight – but they don’t feel they have much passion in their lives either. They really want to feel like they did when they were dating. They turn to the Baltimore Therapy Center for help.

Tyson and Julie are always at each other’s throats. They can’t seem to a day without a major explosion in their house. They can tell their kids are miserable, and frankly, they’re miserable too. They are desperate for a way to change this pattern. Julie finally decides to make the call to local Baltimore therapists at the Baltimore Therapy Center.
