Are you ready to reduce contention and increase connection & communication in your marriage? If yes, then couples therapy might be the right fit for you.

In couples therapy, we will work together to figure out the root cause of disconnection in your relationship, heal past issues, and teach you the communication skills you need to stop feeling like roommates and start feeling like lovers.

Couples therapy, also known as marriage counseling, offers a supportive space for you to get the tools you need to improve your relationship. It provides a safe environment where you and your partner can openly communicate, address issues, and develop skills to navigate challenges together.

Additionally, you’ll gain insight into your relationship dynamics, and learn to express your needs and desires while actively listening to your partner’s perspective.

Couples therapy will help you identify behavior patterns that might hinder your connection, and equip you with strategies to create better communication, intimacy, and trust.

Whether facing specific issues or simply aiming to strengthen your bond with your spouse, couples therapy offers a transformative opportunity for growth, promoting understanding, emotional resilience, and a more fulfilling partnership.

What can I expect during a couples therapy session?

During sessions, I will help you to have open and honest communication between you and your partner.

How long does couples therapy typically last?

Yes! Couples therapy is highly effective in improving relationship satisfaction, communication, and conflict resolution. Research shows that couples who go to therapy experience improvements in their overall relationship quality and a reduction in fighting.

Can couples therapy save a failing marriage?

While couples therapy cannot guarantee the outcome, it provides an opportunity for couples to gain insights, develop healthier patterns of interaction, and work towards growth and healing. It offers a supportive and structured environment to address relationship challenges, improve communication, and rebuild trust.

Do both partners need to attend?

Ideally, both people in the relationship will participate in couples therapy to address relationship dynamics effectively. However, in some cases, one partner may attend therapy initially, and the other partner may join later. I am happy to provide guidance on the best approach for our specific situation if you reach out.

What if my partner doesn’t want to come to couples therapy?

If your partner is resistant to couples therapy, open and honest communication is important. Share your concerns and express the potential benefits of therapy. Encourage your partner to come to the first session to get a better understanding of the process and the therapist’s approach.

How confidential is couples therapy?

Confidentiality is a fundamental principle and legal requirement in couples therapy. The discussions and information shared within therapy sessions are kept private and confidential. However, it’s important to note that all therapists have legal and ethical obligations to maintain confidentiality except in situations involving potential harm to oneself or others.
