"HOW CAN COUPLES THERAPY HELP US?
Couples therapy helps romantic partners see the patterns in their relationship that keep them from experiencing life the way they want. We focus on helping couples understand how deeper emotional and psychological experiences drive conflict. We start by helping you see the same fights you've always had with a new understanding. We can work to understand what's behind the communication issues and bring vulnerability and emotional experiences to the therapy room. Once we all feel satisfied with your new understanding of your relationship and each other, we work on helping you take your new awareness home with you.
WHAT IF MY PARTNER DOESN"T WANT COUPLES THERAPY?
We understand this can be a challenge. When partners don't want to come to couples therapy, we still believe there is value in finding an individual therapist to work with through the relationship concerns you have. Sometimes it can be motivating for your partner to come to therapy if you are making positive changes yourself. Although we believe there can be a positive impact your relationship through therapy, the work it takes to make deeply impactful changes in a relationship requires both intimate partners in the room.
IS COUPLES THERAPY THE SAME THING AS MARRIAGE COUNSELING?
We use these terms interchangeably depending on what kind of a relationship you have. There's absolutely no difference between couples therapy and marriage counseling from a professional perspective. They're the same thing."
