Couples Counseling

It takes work to build a fulfilling, and deeply connected long-term relationship. When problems in a relationship create too much distance or painful conflict, it can be crucial to get some help. Couples therapy is centered around developing insights and strengthening relational capacities in order to more effectively navigate conflict and heal from past wounds. Whether you are preparing for an upcoming marriage, want to improve communication, or are trying to repair your relationship, couples therapy can help. Couples therapists are Level 1 and Level 2 Trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and use this approach in sessions. The Gottman Method Couples Therapy is a highly respected, evidenced based and innovative therapeutic approach. This particular method focuses on building and sustaining the friendship and connectedness between a couple while addressing disruptive communication patterns.

Here are some ways that couples therapy can assist your relationship:

  • Marital preparation or “pre-marital counseling”
  • Adjustment to marriage
  • Improve communication with partner/spouse
  • Family conflict management
  • Enhance emotional and sexual intimacy and closeness
  • Recovery from infidelity or trust issues
  • Parenting support
  • Separation and/or divorce
  • Coping with the emotional toll that infertility and necessary treatments can cause

Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like the you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner?

All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and get what you want out of your relationship.
