Relationship & Family Counseling

Relationship & Family Counseling

Naperville Relationship & Family Therapists Serving the Chicagoland Area

Conflict and obstacles are inevitable in all relationships in life, from romantic relationships to professional relationships and everything in between. But learning to manage these issues in a way that’s healthy and productive is possible, and can lead to happier relationships. At JCA Mental Health, we provide relationship and family counseling that’s designed to help you develop tools for communication, coping skills, and a better understanding of your needs and the needs of those you love.

We Serve People in All Types of Relationships

Our therapists come from all walks of life, and we’re honored to serve a highly diverse population. We offer relationship counseling for married couples, life partners, and those in both monogamous and nonmonogamous relationships. We are kink and fetish-informed and understand the dynamics of nonmonogamous and polyamorous relationships. At JCA Mental Health, you won’t waste time educating your therapist on your relationship structure.

Family Counseling with Compassion

For families, adolescents, and teens, we provide support and guidance for navigating sources of conflict and pain in their relationships. The deep and ongoing connection we have to our family can produce highly complex relationships, but they can also be incredibly validating and rewarding, too. We believe in accepting and affirming all persons regardless of sex, ethnicity, age, gender, or sexual identity and work with families of all structures.

Common Sources of Conflict in Relationships & Families 

We understand that no two relationships or families are exactly alike; however, many couples, relationships, and families struggle with similar sources of conflict, trauma, and pain. Common sources of conflict that lead to families and couples choosing to meet with our therapists include:

In romantic relationships:

  • Infidelity
  • Money management
  • Resentment
  • Sex
  • Criticism
  • Trust
  • Jealousy
  • Boundaries

In families:

  • Divorce
  • Death
  • Substance abuse
  • Parenting issues
  • Communication problems
  • Child behavioral issues
  • Domestic abuse
  • Loss and trauma
  • Coping with change

The above lists are not inclusive, and every couple or family will experience conflict in a unique way. Our therapists bring extensive training and a judgment-free approach to family therapy, allowing you to express your true self.

The Value of Relationship & Family Counseling

Outdated stigmas about counseling used to imply that there must be something “wrong” with you, your family, or your relationship. This is completely false. Seeking relationship and family counseling is one of the best ways to take action to heal past traumas and harmful communication styles, but it’s also an effective way to maintain healthy relationships. Being proactive in managing conflict is empowering and healthy and can prevent issues from lingering.

Seeking relationship and family counseling can teach you skills for communication and bring you and your loved one(s) closer together. Some of the advantages of family and relationship counseling include:

  • Gaining a deeper understanding of the dynamics of your relationship or family
  • Understanding your own personal sources of trauma and things that trigger you
  • Gaining a better understanding of your own needs and communication style, as well as the impact you have on your partner(s)/your family
  • Learning more about the perspective of your loved one(s)
  • Developing healthier ways of communicating your emotions, feelings, and needs
  • Developing coping skills for managing negative emotions
  • Restoring trust and intimacy

In addition to the above, there is value in having a safe space to have difficult conversations, as well as having a neutral therapist who is available to mediate the conversation and provide insight and support.
