Couples therapy can help you to nurture your relationship and find greater understanding of both your partner and relationship. We can work with you to improve your relationship or marriage by identifying unhelpful cycles and communication patterns, deepening connection and intimacy, repairing old wounds, developing active listening, learning how our families of origin impact our adult romantic relationships, working toward a secure attachment in our relationship, and more.
What To Expect
We provide a free 15-minute consultation with one or both partners to find out what your needs are, answer any questions you might have, and determine what your scheduling needs are. If the partners and therapist decide we might be a good fit, then we will schedule our first session together. The first session includes both partners and will consist of the therapist stepping into your world to learn about the history of your relationship, the way you interact with one another, what you feel works well, and what you want to improve.
The second and third sessions are individual sessions with each partner. These sessions allow each partner to express themselves freely, begin to establish a therapeutic relationship with the therapist, and help the therapist get to know each partner as an individual. There are often a few assessments that will be conducted in these individual sessions as well. After that, in the fourth session, the therapist will provide observation and evaluation from the first three sessions, we will collaboratively come up with a plan for how to proceed in our work together, and set goals.
Our couples therapist utilize Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Gottman Method, and more in their treatment methods.
