Couples Therapy

Couples therapy can be helpful when a relationship has frayed with the passage of time or when it becomes clear that old solutions are no longer effective in resolving current issues.

When communication problems mount, making it difficult to see one another’s perspective or to find ways of solving problems effectively together, couples therapy provides a forum for learning new ways of communicating, and for clarifying each partners needs and how they may be more readily met.

Major life transitions (birth of a child, empty nest, career change, life threatening illness) can cause wear and tear on your relationship, highlighting old conflicts and providing momentum for taking stock of the relationship and finding new ways of relating. Working with your partner in couples therapy can help partners work together to articulate expectations, resolve painful family issues, and maintain a satisfying well–functioning relationship.
