You are terrified of losing your wife. She seems completely checked out lately. When you go to touch her, you don’t get a response. You get that she’s stressed about work or overwhelmed with all she does for the family. But you can’t help but wonder if it’s you or if there’s a problem in your relationship.
You’ve been trying to figure out what to try or do differently, but you don’t even know where to start. You don’t want to make things worse. And you worry that you can’t change some of the things that are hard for you in relating and connecting with her. But all you can think about is that you miss her.
What is marriage counseling for men?
This is where relationship counseling for men comes in. I help men who are struggling with their relationships or marriage. I help you get clarity and confidence on whether you have a part to play in the problem that you struggling with. And if you decide you have a part in the problem, your wife doesn’t have to come with you to counseling in order for you to identify what you can do differently.
With some coaching, you can dig into better understanding how your marriage got to this point or how you can better support your wife. I want you to find the confidence to meet your own needs without making things worse. Sometimes all you need is a little coaching to help you bring your best self to your relationship.
Are you interested in working with a counselor or therapist?
You could continue to go on like this, stuck in your head, and trying to figure out what to do next. Or you can pick a time for your free 15-minute phone consult with me. And determine if working with a counselor near you is the next best step for you and your marriage.
Note: In addition to working with men who want to be more confident in connecting better with their wives, I’m also available for consultation about your other relationships, including kids, work, family, and yourself. Counseling for men is available in my Independence office, but I also see clients who reside in surrounding cities of Greater Kansas City such as Blue Springs, Grain Valley, and Lee’s Summit.
