We offer couples work in many forms


As with individual or family psychotherapy, couples work is not a "one size fits all" approach. Which form of couples work is right for you and your partner may depend on the specific issues you hope to address through treatment. Our practice specifically specializes in treating couples, all of our clinicians have specific training in various forms of couple psychotherapy, including (but not limited to): 


  • Emotionally-Focused Couple Therapy
  • Gottman Method Couple Therapy 
  • Prepare-Enrich Relationship Check UP (Pre-marital couple therapy)
  • Attachment-Based Couple Therapy 


Which form of treatment is right for you and your partner? Contact the practice and one of our clinicians will schedule a phone consultation to help you and your partner decide what makes the most sense in addressing your specific needs. You can also read more about each therapist's approach to treating couples on the Meet Our Team page.

What is Couple Therapy?

The overall goal of Couples Therapy is the build and strengthen the connection between you and your partner, which often includes resolving issues from the past, creating better and more effective means of communicating, and learning to better manage and resolve conflict. Couples therapy can also be helpful in clarifying feelings about your relationship with your partner in a constructive way. This form of therapy is not just for those who are married. Couples counseling can be useful for anyone who considers themselves to be in a committed relationship, whether you and your significant other are dating, married, in a domestic partnership, or even separated. You and your partner will work with a specially trained therapist to gain insight into what each of you bring individually to the couple dynamic, while also learning new ways of communicating, managing conflict, and ultimately building a deeper connection. 

 

Is Couples Therapy right for what my partner and I are going through?


Are you feeling disconnected from your partner? Do you feel like you keep having the same argument over and over? Has there been infidelity in the relationship? Do you feel that you are satisfied in your relationship, but to strengthen your relationship? Feeling ambivalent about staying in your relationship? These are common reasons for people to seek couples counseling. Sometimes when feeling stuck and unsure how to proceed in your relationship, it can be useful to seek the help of a trained professional. 

 

What can I expect during therapy?


You and your partner will meet with trained couples therapist. You will discuss the course of treatment that works best for you, including how often you would like to have sessions. (It is recommended that you and your partner have one session per week.) Your therapist will gather information about you and your partner's families of origin, the course of your relationship, and what you hope to gain from therapy. Throughout treatment you may be asked to complete tasks or "homework assignments" to help reinforce what you and your partner are working on during sessions. There is not a set number of sessions recommended for any one couple, some people feel that their goals for therapy can be met in a few sessions, while others may continue to participate in therapy for months or years. Whenever you feel that you and your partner feel that your goals have been met, we will discuss terminating therapy.
