Some of the common reasons couples seek counseling:

  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Lack of effective communication
  • Infidelity
  • Lack of emotional connection
  • Reduced sexual intimacy
  • Anger management issues
  • Lack of conflict resolution
  • Financial stress

The client is the couple rather than two separate individuals. We will work together to establish healthier communication patterns and increase connection and intimacy between partners. The goal is that each person expresses their needs and each person feels heard and understood. We will establish a win-win dynamic rather than a win- lose dynamic between partners. It is a common misconception that relationships should feel easy and do not require effort and work. At the conclusion of couple’s therapy both participants will have the tools to adequately express their feelings, listen to their partner and learn to respect each others differences in the process.

Couples’ Therapy: Addressing Issues to Restore the Relationship

It is normal for couples to face challenges in their relationship from time to time. And if both partners practice open communication, it’s possible to overcome and grow from these disagreements. But sometimes, couples get stuck in cycles of miscommunication and they realize that an outside facilitator may be helpful to get them to understand each other better. . The goal of couples’ therapy is to help both partners work on their issues to improve their relationship.

Oftentimes when client’s seek couples counseling, it is due to allowing feelings to accumulate and not be expressed. Before long, couples are fighting more or are suffering in silence. With the help of a couples’ therapist, these issues will be addressed in an effective manner.
