Choosing to start couples counseling can feel like taking a very big step into the unknown. Like most things, the first step you take is most often the most difficult one. When that step is taken with Laurie Grengs, an experienced and effective couples’ counselor, you may look back on the fear of taking that first step with a smile.
Couples who are ready to take that step to seek couples counseling should recognize that the step in itself is a positive sign. If you have been reluctant to schedule time with a couples’ counselor, you might have had some difficulty even acknowledging that your relationship was in need of some help. When you and your partner agree to take that step, even if one of you remains reluctant, you still took the step, which is a necessary component of working through your difficulties.
Experienced Couples Counselor MN
Couples counseling can address many different issues including communication struggles, trust issues, and and conflict. Laurie Grengs has offered counseling services for more than thirty-five years and has been successful because she understands the complex dynamics of human relationships. Furthermore, she understands how to inspire couples to think about a variety of strategies than can help them find the meaning in and value of their relationships again. Relationships are complex and, as such, they do not always operate on the preferred rhythms of the individuals who comprise them. A skilled and experienced counselor like Laurie Grengs can help you find your common rhythms again.
Every relationship is different, of course, but relationships do tend to be affected by some common dynamics. One of the more common reasons couples seek help from qualified counselors is a loss of trust. Perhaps, the most familiar cause of a loss of trust is infidelity—one or both members of the couple cheats on their partner with someone else. Though it may be the first thing that comes to mind when the trust is at issue, it is important to recognize that people can lose trust in their partners for reasons that have nothing to do with cheating or infidelity. In such cases, the dynamics are likely to be enormously complicated, in which case you will want your counselor to possess a deft touch and deep understanding of relationship complexity. Laurie Grengs has both.
