Couples Therapy

Sometimes our most intimate relationships hit bumps along the way. No matter your level of commitment or crisis, learning how' to express our thoughts and feelings and how to listen can provide relief.

How do I know if I need couples therapy?
On average, couples wait seven years after the start of distress to seek out treatment. Warning signs your relationship needs attention include:

  • feeling disconnected
  • avoiding difficult conversations
  • constantly arguing
  • sexual dissatisfaction
  • infidelity
  • secret-keeping
  • intense jealousy
  • difficult life transition, including job loss, parenthood, moving

How can couples therapy help?
We help couples identify patterns of poor communication, misaligned goals, and roadblock. Our goal is to strengthen the union between partners, opening up lines of communication that have never been open before. We provide insight into individual strengths and weaknesses, provide in-session direction, and offer new understandings of yourself and your partner.

At the end of treatment, you'll walk away with a new found sense of appreciation and love for your partner, a strengthened relationship, and a shared understanding of the life your leading together.
