Couple’s therapy

Partners come into couple’s counseling or marriage counseling with a variety of issues to address including communication & conflict resolution, sexual & intimacy issues, fighting and anger problems, identity and role conflict, dependence vs. independence, religion, ethics and values, jealousy, parenting, infidelity, money and finances, addiction, family and in-law struggles, step family issues, gender roles, infertility / adoption, and many more.
While all relationships can sometimes suffer under the pressures of everyday life, ongoing and unaddressed stresses can leave you feeling exhausted, depressed, desperate and with low self esteem. Couple’s counseling enables couples to start a process of change, which consequently results in a deeper emotional relationship with more tolerance, trust and closeness. To ensure that a Couple’s therapy is successful, it is necessary that both partners are able to articulate their own needs, expectations and feelings, while respecting those of the other. A psychologist can help in learning to communicate differently, which oftentimes enables couples to find new trust and respect for each other. Partners will identify conflict patterns and learn to interrupt them in order to find new ways to interact with each other.
