Can Therapy Save My Marriage?

In the United States, 40-50% of marriages end in divorce. Those numbers can seem alarming, but they’re also starting to drop, and marriage counseling services could have a lot to do with it.

At All Day Medical Care Clinic, our team offers a comprehensive list of behavioral and mental health services to help patients from all walks of life. If your relationship has hit a rocky patch, here’s how marriage therapy with James Egan, MD, could help.

Creating a safe space 

It’s hard to be completely honest in a constructive way when you’re at odds with your spouse, especially in the confines of your home. Conversations in this personal space can often spiral out of control, causing anger and serious pain that can be difficult to move beyond.

However, when you attend marriage therapy with Dr. Egan, you enter a safe environment without judgment. This setting makes it easier to have frank and honest conversations, which can help you and your partner move forward together.

Providing impartial advice

Marriage therapy also gives access to impartial advice for both parties. These sessions enable each partner to talk freely, while Dr. Egan offers suggestions to improve communication. And, when talking isn’t enough, he can also provide practical tips, so you can continue working on problem areas at home. 

However, unlike discussing personal issues with a friend or family member, Dr. Egan offers advice as an impartial professional after taking both views into account.  

Clearing the air

A marriage can break down for several reasons, ranging from pent-up feelings of frustration, resentment, and anger to infidelity. 

Negative feelings in a relationship can become toxic, because they can become more intense with time. Similarly, being unfaithful, or the suggestion of infidelity, can devastate a marriage, especially when it comes to feelings of trust.

Attending marriage therapy can help release feelings of resentment and frustration before they become damaging to your relationship. This setting also provides a space to face infidelity head-on, without judgment, while exploring ways to rebuild trust.

Building a bond

In addition to systematically addressing negative issues, Dr. Egan also offers strategies to strengthen and restore intimacy in your relationship. Divorce isn’t the only way to deal with conflict in your marriage. Confronting issues head-on with an experienced professional like Dr. Egan can help transform your relationship, even if you feel like you're on the brink of divorce.

Whether your marital problems are great or small, marriage therapy could help. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with All Day Medical Care Clinic today.
