Balance Requires a Healthy Relationship: All UB’s Chicago area Locations Have Therapists On Staff with Couples Counseling Expertise

UB is Celebrating 10 Years of Helping Create Healthy Couples & Families in Chicago

All couples can benefit from therapy or counseling to reduce stress, conflict, and negative interaction. Couples counseling can improve relationship strengths as well as increase intimacy and happiness.

It is a common misconception that seeking couples therapy means your relationship has serious problems or is doomed. All relationships have issues and conflict and UB has experiences professionals who can help you manage them in a way that expeditiously improves your quality of life.

UB recommends couples counseling not only when experiencing relationship distress or a specific issue, but also seeking therapy preventively at times of transition such as moving in together, getting married, and starting a family. Some couples decide to participate in couples counseling even if they have decided to split, especially when children are involved and they need to develop ways to communicate and co-parent effectively.

Couples usually seek therapy for help resolving these commonly addressed issues:

-conflict resolution problems
-issues related to finances
-trust/boundary matters
-commitment questions
-sexual/intimacy concerns
-relationship stress due to unexpected life issues

Therapy is a safe and confidential place to get support, insight, guidance, information, tools, resources, and skills to improve your relationship for years to come. At each of UB’s six locations we have therapists on staff who are trained and seasoned experts in facilitating relationship healing and growth.

Therapy can be a positive experience to learn about your partner and nurture your relationship. If you or your partner is unsure if couples therapy is right for you, consider committing to 1-3 sessions to try it out. The benefits almost always outweigh the costs of time and money invested.
