Marriage Counseling

Couples counseling for low desire and sexless relationships

Are you in a sexless marriage? Is your relationship suffering from a lack of sex, or from disappointing sex? Do you and/or your partner feel a lack of desire?

Many couples find sex difficult to talk about and often couples therapy doesn't pay enough attention to the role of sex in intimate relationships. It can help to have a therapist to guide you through conversations about sex that you've been unable to have at home.

One of the reasons this approach often fails is that each person is fighting so hard for his or her position that the other position seems like it is not being taken seriously.

  • Hurt
  • Embarrassed
  • Ashamed
  • Angry

Your brain may react almost instantaneously, so quickly that it seems obvious that your partner must have known you would react like this and that he or she must have intended you to feel this way. Sometimes, this may be accurate.

How to Improve Communication – Dealing with Misunderstandings

One of the most common sources of misunderstandings and fights in the couples I see comes from an assumption that our partner is understanding what we communicate the way we intend them to understand it. You may be familiar with a game called “telephone”, in which a message gets passed orally from one person to another – often, the message has been completely transformed by the time it reaches the last person.

Premarital Counseling Can Help

Sadly, between 40 and 50% of new, first marriages are likely to end in divorce, often within 3-5 years. Second and third marriages are even more likely to end in divorce (over 60% for second marriages and over 70% for third marriages).

Fortunately, it is possible to learn new ways to communicate and to deal with differences with your partner. There is growing research about what works for couples that stay together and it's quite possible to apply what we've learned from happy couples.

Did you know that according to research, even happy couples that stay together have typically not "solved" over 60% of their initial disagreements?
