Relationships of all types can be hard. We can often address some of the difficulties in the relationship ourselves, but there are times when we need the help of a licensed professional. Look at it from the standpoint of maintaining your house, car or health. There are some things we can do the maintenance ourselves, but we need to know when to call in a professional for lasting repair.
A Couple might seek therapy for conflict, failed communication, betrayal (of all types), intimacy challenges, changes in lifestyle or new stressors, and/or family of origin concerns. These issues can arise in any phase or type of a relationship.
Also, couples don’t only come to therapy when things are rocky, but they also come when things are going along well. We call these times check-ins. During those check-in sessions, we usually address “possible” issues, like time management, lifestyle balance and future planning that could cause stress.
Our therapists have been trained to use evidence-based approaches such as Gottman, Emotion- Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Click here to inquire about making an appointment.
Every couple embarks on their marriage journey with good intentions and differences. Our counseling provides an opportunity to explore various facets of the relationship, including many that couples may not yet grasp as important.
Pre-marriage counseling lays out skills needed to nurture a relationship; it helps couples identify strengths and potential areas for growth and explores healthy conflict resolution as well as other skills that contribute to long-term relationship success.
