Couples and Relationship Therapy

RELATIONSHIPS​

Our work will focus on uncovering and addressing the unconscious dynamics that contribute to relationship challenges. By exploring each partner’s past experiences, beliefs, and unresolved conflicts, we will be able to understand the underlying patterns of behavior, communication styles and emotional triggers that aren’t serving the relationship. This approach encourages self-awareness and insight, and helps couples to understand how their individual histories shape their interaction and relationship. Through an open dialogue, interpretation, and reflection, partners can gain a deeper understanding of their dynamics, thus developing healthier ways of relating and interacting which ultimately improves communication, decreases arguing, and brings about a more harmonious relationship.  

 

Areas of focus include but are not limited to:

  • Traditional couples or non-traditional relationships i.e., polyamory, open relationships, consensual non-monogamy, etc.

  • Feeling stuck, repeating the same pattern

  • Increased fighting and unresolved conflict

  • Breakdown in communication

  • Increased anger and contempt

  • Lack of interest in sexual intimacy

  • Traumatic experiences -PTSD

  • Differing parenting styles

  • Life transitions or changes, i.e. new baby, loss of a loved one, new job, new relationship, divorce, etc...

  • Separation reconciliation

  • Divorce Recovery

  • Affair Recovery

  • Healthy Uncoupling

  • Anxiety or depression affecting the relationship

PREMARITAL

Premarital work is designed to help couples who are engaged or planning to get married. The goal is to prepare the couple for marriage by providing a supportive and educational environment. What we cover depends on your goals and the length of time you want to spend.
 

It is important to note that premarital therapy is not a guarantee of a successful marriage, but it can significantly enhance a couple's readiness for what lies ahead. It can provide an opportunity to address potential issues proactively and fosters a commitment to ongoing growth and communication within the relationship.

  • Setting and understanding expectations

  • Exploring values and beliefs

  • Increasing communication skills
