What is Marriage Counseling and how will it benefit married couples in crisis?

A standard definition of a Licensed couple therapist could include a numer of different titles such as: psychiatrist, licensed clinical social workers, counseling psychologist, clinical psychologist, marriage and family therapists, etc. The main purposes of hiring a relationship counselor or couples therapist is to have someone help facilitate communication and help strugglin couples design a framework forcommunication and thoroughly analyzing the relationship as a whole.


Additional concepts to consider when it comes to finding the right marriage counselor:

Before we examine or even try to understand the relationship between individuals, we should start out by recognizing and acknowledging that each man or woman, including the counselor, has their own unique personality traits, perceptions, and value sets which were formed during their upbringing.

We all are ingrained with different value systems!

Institutional and societal factors (our sociology, religious, and other historical factors) which colectively mold a person’s nature and behavior are considered in the course of effective counseling and therapy. A major aspect of relationship counseling is that it is intrinsically beneficial for all the participants to communicate with each other and with society at large with minimal conflict.  Communication will be the key to your success and counseling sessions will help provide the platform to accomplish dispute resolution and preservation of your marriage or relationship.

We all struggle with our relationships and communication. Most of us were not taught how to be married … how to clarify what we want… how to set our expectations and have them met. There are a variety issues you may be facing and need to address.  As a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience,  the following list identifies some of the most common questions of what a new, enganed or married couple should be asked before they seek professional relationship therapy:


  • Are you feeling frustrated with your relationship?
  • Are you arguing more than making love?
  • Do you feel alone even though you are in a relationship?
  • Does you marriage suffer with sexual intimacies?
  • Do you feel like roommates instead of lovers?
  • Is there anger and resentment rather than love and tenderness?
  • Has your marriage been hurt by an affair or inappropriate behavior?


If you came this far is searching online or seeking professional marriage counseling advice, you likely identify with at least one of these crucial questions. The good news is that Nancy Travers is your best choice for making progress, healing your relationship, and setting realistic goals.

Relationship and Marriage Expectations and Goals

Expectations and goals in a marriage or relationship are extremely important. Each person comes into a relationship or marriage with ideas, goals and dreams of what they think it should be like. People then tend to hinge everything they do and the way they behave around these goals. I work to help people vocalize and openly share these ideas. Then I facilitate the communication and understanding of of each person’s goals for the relationship.  It is imperative that both members of the couple understand that couples therapy is a long term process and disputes hardly ever get fully resolved in one session or one day.  That is why it is important to consider the quality and comprehensiveness of the benefits you will receive from proper communication, effort, letting go of pride, and working in unison to preserve your common bond.

Benefits of Counseling

Couples and marriage counseling can bring many positive elements to a relationship. It can help people understand each other better as well as communicate their own desires more comprehensively. Counseling can also bring issues to the forefront and help people realize some motivations for why certain individuals are wired the way that they are. One of the most important benefits that counseling can provide is the exposure and actual communication of issues that have been swept under the rug or never even brought to the surface in the first place.  Clarity of your relationship is a concept within itself and identifying the bigger picture where everything that is at stake becomes more apparent.  this bigger picture of your marriage or relationship includes, but is not limited to: your physical health, mental health, your children, your extended family, your career, friends, positive mental attitude, outlook on life, and overall piece of mind.
