Maybe you and your partner are arguing about a seemingly insignificant topic, and then it quickly escalates into a significant conflict. Perhaps your relationship feels stale, and the two of you are leading separate lives, leaving no time or space to connect with one another. Sometimes there is a big issue such as money, sex, infidelity, pornography, in-laws, family, or children, and seemingly no way to resolve or move past these issues.
Couples therapy can help you improve functioning and communication at any stage of your relationship--regardless of marital status, age, race, faith, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Couples therapy assists couples in understanding the emotional and physical needs that exist in one another and how to develop strategies to meet these needs together, thereby leading to improvements in your relationship. Through marriage counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding your relationship--or going your separate ways.
Our trained, highly skilled couples' therapists will work with you and your partner to identify and direct change towards historically problematic patterns of behaving and functioning using the most individualized, up-to-date, and researched treatment methods. Your therapist will incorporate therapy modes such as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the Gottman Method, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
Your couples' therapist will get to know you and your partner, assist in identifying and sorting out feelings and issues and explore the past. Your therapist will use this as the foundation to focus on solutions/compromises as well as teaching anger management, conflict resolution, and/or problem-solving skills that can heal your relationship and ultimately take it to a new level. The unique goals that you and your partner set with your therapist will be consistently monitored and updated as needed, maintaining a view of the desired outcome. Sessions are didactic, interpersonal, and collaborative, with both of you given the opportunity to speak, practice new communication patterns, and interact more effectively with one another.
We are here for you and your partner and want to create positive changes and improvements that you can see and notice in your daily interactions with each other. Contact us today to get matched with your couples therapist.
