Is Couples Therapy right for us?
Couples counseling can help couples in all types of intimate relationships — regardless of sexual orientation or marriage status. Some couples seek marriage counseling to strengthen their partnership and gain a better understanding of each other. Couples counseling can also help couples who plan to get married. Premarital counseling can help couples achieve a deeper understanding of each other and iron out differences before marriage.
What kind of issues can we address in Couples Therapy?
You can use couples counseling to help with many specific issues, including:
What if I am in an abusive relationship?
Couples counseling might also be helpful in cases of domestic abuse. If violence has escalated to the point that you're afraid, however, counseling alone isn't adequate. Contact the police or a local shelter or crisis center for emergency support.
What happens in a couples therapy session?
Couples counseling typically brings couples or partners together for joint therapy sessions. Working with a therapist, you'll learn skills to solidify your relationship, such as:
You'll talk about the good and bad parts of your relationship as you pinpoint and better understand the sources of your conflicts. Together you'll learn how to identify problems without blame and instead examine how things can be improved. During your time with your therapist you will learn that it’s not that healthy couples don’t get mad or disagree. It’s that when they disagree, they’re able to stay connected and engaged with each other. Rather than becoming defensive and hurtful, they pepper their disputes with flashes of affection, intense interest, and mutual respect.
When will things get better and how much is it going to cost?
Each couple is different but most see a significant difference after 8-10 sessions. We offer competitive rates and also accept Aetna, Cigna, AvMed and United Health Care Insurance plans.
Are you and your partner struggling due to problems within your relationship? We can help.
