Couples Therapy

Often couples come to therapy when they have found themselves locked into certain relational patterns that continually lead to arguments, loss of connection, or living like roommates instead of a romantic couple. Our therapists help couples identify and alter these patterns, often with insight into how they developed in the first place. The therapist might also explore the connection between these patterns and each partner’s experience of early formative relationships. We work with couples to address a variety of goals or challenges, some of which might include:
  • Frequent fighting and arguing
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Disconnection and isolation
  • Sexual problems
  • Parenting
  • Managing a separation or divorce
  • Recovering from affairs
  • Negotiating new life circumstances, such as marriage, childbirth, fertility issues, “empty nest”, blended families, and major financial changes

Group Therapy

You may not feel as though working one-on-one with a therapist is right for you, or you may desire something in addition to your current individual therapy. You may desire support and/or connection with others who are struggling with something similar to you, somewhere to feel understood and not alone. Group therapy is a place where you can find this support and familiarity. It can also be a place to challenge you to work through issues you may not find you are able to explore without the interaction of others. In a group, you will be with a small number of other people that are experiencing some issue similar to you. You will be able to discuss your own challenges while gaining feedback and support from both other group members as well as the therapist facilitating the group. Some groups may be more skill based and provide more education around how to navigate certain life challenges. The therapist facilitator will help the group remain safe and productive as well as keep the group moving forward.
