We at the Counseling and Wellness Center of Pittsburgh understand that nothing is more difficult than experiencing the deterioration of our closest and most important relationships. Whether your marriage has suffered from neglect, inattention, breaches of trust, abuse, addiction, conflict and chronic arguments, infidelity, trauma, difficulty with time management, or even the effects from interpersonal anxiety, you may fear that you are headed for a break-up or divorce. If you’re here and want to give your relationship one more try with marriage counseling, we can help. If you are wondering how strong your relationship is, read our relationship wellness checklist and see how well your relationship stands up to our 5 part questionnaire compiled by our team of expert counselors and family and marriage specialists.
We offer marriage counseling, premarital counseling, and couples therapy as we understand the unique concerns that each kind of relationship may present. Our marriage counselors are trained to assist couples in developing the skills to relate to each other in a more effective way. We understand that all relationships are a little bit different and will offer the couple tools to enhance their intimacy, rebuild trust, enhance their love and ability to sustain their families.
In other instances couples choose to seek the support of our expert marriage counselors for uncoupling and co-parenting. We are willing to help each couple, each person within the relationship to create and achieve their goals. Couples who go through marriage counseling, or premarital counseling at our centers report experiencing less conflict, understanding the root causes of conflict, a better understanding of their relationships, enhanced intimacy and greater joy. We also offer family counseling if your goal is to co-parent more effectively as well as counseling for children including art therapy.
We recognize that true conversation differs from talking and listening. Sometimes despite a couples’ staunchest efforts to move in the direction of intimate love, barriers and walls leave them feeling hopeless, helpless, and confused. Couples therapy or Marriage Counseling offers hope and opportunity to regain that once cherished peace, care, and intimate connection.
Voted top rated counseling practice for couples therapy over the years, the award winning and licensed therapists of our centers utilized evidence-based therapy models as a compassionate scientific approach. Some of our therapists use Gottman Method Marriage Counseling and/or Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) around the development of the skills of mutual exploration, mutual engagement, and mutual empathy. Others use systems or structural family therapy, non-violent and empathetic communication. We also emphasize the themes of emotional and physical safety, knowing that we can only care deeply when an all encompassing sense of safety is present—safety as the pathway to partner trust and bonding.
Our marriage counselors know that trust extends beyond fidelity but trusting understanding, trusting each other to respect boundaries, to honor the agreed upon commitment, as well as to respect relationships outside of the loving bond. In this lifetime, love will be our greatest achievement and we have it down to a science. Please contact us for more information or the schedule an appointment in our Pittsburgh, Wexford, South Hills, Monroeville or Greensburg locations.
We encourage you to reach out with any questions so that we can do our best to support your relationship. For your convenience we do accept most major insurances and we also offer a sliding scale to embody our mission of providing help and support for all members of our community.
