    Signs It Might Be Time for Couples Counseling 

    While those actively involved in the relationship will know best, sometimes it can be challenging to identify when to look into counseling. That’s why the experts at Sano Center want to help. Here are some of the top signs it might be time to consider couples counseling.

    • You’re focusing more on the negative than the positive
    • You have ideological differences
    • You’re having trouble communicating with your partner
    • The “honeymoon phase” or your relationship has ended
    • You feel you are growing apart
    • You’re thinking about getting married
    • It seems like counseling might be a good idea
    • You’re no longer having sex
    • You never have fights
    • You can’t stop fighting
    • You feel like your individual and collective growth is stunted
    • Everything your partner is doing annoys you
    • You’re constantly stuck on the same issue
    • You feel like your partner isn’t listening to you

    Couples Counseling Approaches

    To help couples achieve their goals, Sano Center uses the Prost Progressive therapeutic modalities. Some of the couples counseling approaches include:

    • Solution-focused therapy
    • Imago therapy
    • Narrative therapy
    • Emotionally-focused couples therapy
    • The Gottman Method
    • And more
