Is there a relationship therapist near me who can help us?

Are you looking for relationship counseling in Seattle, WA? You’re not alone. Whether you feel your relationship is headed in the wrong direction, or you’re neck-deep in struggles that you and your partner want to work through, thousands of couples are encountering similar obstacles. More reach out for help every day. Empathi can guide you through your struggles.

Here are the most common issues people in Seattle come to us with:

Many couples disagree over the division of goods in the relationship. If a couple lives together, conflicts sometimes arise regarding what belongs to whom. This can be prevalent in times when a couple is also experiencing contention in other areas of their relationship.

Division of responsibility is often a trigger point for couples. When partners share a home, there is oftentimes contention over the distribution of necessary tasks. These issues are especially frequent when a couple has children.

Loss of intimacy is a common reason people seek out relationship counseling in Seattle. Married and unmarried couples alike can experience a slowdown in romance and physical connection as time puts distance between them and the fiery feelings they had at the outset of their relationship. This is a common issue that can cause friction between partners.

Prioritization of marriage can cause friction between partners. Unmarried couples can find themselves in disagreement over the topic of marriage. This often happens when one partner feels ready to move forward and the other doesn’t believe that it’s the right time.

Couples counseling from Empathi can help guide you through your struggles and offer tools to help you productively resolve conflict.

What if couples therapy in Seattle hasn't worked for me in the past?

Maybe you’ve seen a relationship therapist before and they didn’t provide the guidance you needed. It could be that the therapist didn’t have the right experience or they used a “one size fits all” approach to your unique situation. You’ve come to the right place. Empathi counselors are experienced in adapting their approach to suit your specific relationship needs.

Your expert counselor is here to guide you back to connection using Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy and the Empathi Method.

Acceptance

The hardest part is just getting started.

Alliance

Feel like you’re on the same team again.

Explore your process and discover a unified narrative where neither of you are wrong or right, “the good one,” or “the bad one.” Learn to approach suffering and conflicts as an “us” problem instead of a “them” problem or a “me” problem.

Empathy

See the hurt and love behind their reactivity.

Strengthen your new narrative by accessing empathy to recognize the root of each other’s reactivity, how much you matter to each other, and what love is. Understand the cycles you get into with the help of your expert Empathi counselor.

Vulnerability

Share the hurt and love behind your reactivity.

Get to know, live in, and share your vulnerable feelings. Then, learn to let in the ways that those feelings are understood and accepted by your partner through the power of the Empathi method and Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy.

Connection

Feel deeply and securely bonded to one another.

Mend your relationship and your wounds through the understanding that you matter to each other. Learn to grieve, show up for, heal, and accept the most vulnerable parts inside of each other without sacrificing those parts in yourselves.

Resilience

Rely on your bond to get out of stuck moments.

Having proved your ability to resolve long-standing issues, heated conflicts, and negative cycles, face your future together with a certainty that you will not only survive those moments, but grow stronger and more connected because of them.

What questions should I ask before beginning couples therapy?

Interview your potential therapist. Once you’ve narrowed down your options, schedule a consultation. Have some questions prepared and base your decision on how they answer.

You’ll want to know the qualifications of the counselor that you’ll be seeing and to make sure they seem like a good fit.

These questions will help you better determine if the therapist is a good option for you:

It’s important that you stick with counseling once it starts, because you’ll get the best results if you complete their plan. Couples who stick with therapy until it’s complete enjoy better outcomes all around. They experience better emotional health, live longer, and many report being happier than before they started therapy.

Seeking out a quality couples therapist is the best first step in repairing your relationship. They’re able to objectively look at your partnership and determine what tools that they can provide will give you the best outcome.

If you and your partner need guidance to help restore your connection, now is the best time to take action. The sooner you act, the sooner quality couples therapy can help you. Come to us for quality counseling. Contact Empathi and start on the path to making your relationship feel as good as new.
