Marriage Counseling in Seattle

Begin the Empathi Process

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.

Healing starts with accepting you need help, booking a free consult, and showing up as you are. Everything that comes next will be easier as you’re held by an Empathi therapist and a proven process. From now on, you’re not alone in this.

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 marriage counseling?

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. You’ll also want to make sure they seem like a good fit.

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

Experienced Empathi counselors are able to adjust to fit the needs of your specific marriage situation.

Just remember that it’s important that you stick with counseling once you find the right therapist. Couples who stay with marriage counseling are far more likely to remain together. They rate their marriages as more satisfying, and couples who stay in a fulfilling relationship live longer, have better emotional health, and are just happier about life.

We usually go into marriage with high expectations. Struggles and obstacles can often leave us feeling disillusioned and stuck. This doesn’t mean that it’s the end. There’s a bright future ahead, just waiting for you and your partner to explore it together. Finding a good marriage therapist is a terrific first step in moving toward that future.

If your marriage needs renewal and healing, now is the time to reach out. The sooner you begin, the sooner quality marital counseling can guide you back to the path of a fulfilling marriage. Reach out to Empathi and begin the journey forward.
