Couples therapy is like a lot of things in life: the more you put into it, the more you’ll get out of it. Couples counselors will help to identify not only where the problems are in a relationship, but why they exist, how they got there, and how they can be resolved. They can help a troubled couple work out a blueprint for success, but the couple must be willing to do the actual work involved before they will get there. This usually involves gaining insight into how each party contributes to the relationship problems, and changing the problematic behaviors.
