Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy that works with couples to help navigate difficulties that they are experiencing within their relationship. There are many reasons why couples may be seeking therapy, and it is our mission to help each unique couple identify personalized goals for therapy. Some couples seek to resolve conflicts and resentment towards one another, improve communication, and reconnect. For other couples, their friendships may be strong, but their emotional and sexual intimacies may have faded. Some relationships may have reached the point of disillusionment, and they seek therapy to support separation from one another or maybe strive for reconciliation.
Our practice offers a supportive and non-judgmental space for couples to explore their fears, hopes, and desires in addition to fostering a deeper self-awareness and connection within their partnerships. Your therapist will help each partner identify his or her goals for counseling and will support the couple as a whole instead of focusing on each individual separately. This is an important element of couples therapy so as to ensure that neither partner feels targeted, blamed, or outcasted, which are common concerns that individuals express prior to beginning couples therapy.
Below are some areas in which couples therapy can focus:
- Separation and Reconciliation
- Marital Conflict
- Pre-marital Counseling
- Lack of Sexual Desire and/or Intimacy
- Improving Communication
- Increasing Empathy and Understanding
- Child-rearing Conflicts
