Couples Therapy

Couples therapy for Communication, Trust, Intimacy, Financial Strain, and More.

An authentic and honest exploration of feelings through couples therapy.

If any of these sound like you, your partner, or relationship:

  • You feel the communication has dwindled or has completely left your relationship
  • You noticed a drastic increase in arguments between you and your partner
  • You find that the trust that you once held for one another is broken
  • You wonder if you are still in love

Couples therapy could be right for you.

We provide couples therapy for…

Communication Issues

Effective communication forms the foundation of a strong relationship, and couples therapy creates a structured space where partners can learn important skills such as attentive listening, expressing themselves assertively, and engaging in non-defensive communication. By identifying and addressing communication patterns that lead to misunderstandings or conflicts, couples can enhance their ability to communicate openly, empathetically, and in a positive manner.

Trust, Infidelity, Intimacy

Via open conversations and directed discussions, couples have the opportunity to delve into the root causes of their issues, embark on forgiveness, and create plans to rebuild trust. Counseling also plays a role in reigniting intimacy by aiding couples in expressing their desires, addressing vulnerabilities, and reconstructing both emotional and physical closeness. Collaborating with a therapist allows couples to progress towards healing, rebuilding trust, and cultivating a stronger, more enduring connection.

Financial Strain

Financial challenges have the potential to strain communication, breed resentment, and give rise to conflicts that can adversely affect the overall health of a relationship. Counseling offers a neutral and supportive space where partners can openly converse about their financial concerns, goals, and values. By jointly addressing financial stress, couples can collaborate towards cultivating a healthier financial dynamic, alleviating tension, and fortifying the foundation of their relationship.

FAQ

What are your rates?

Out of pocket cost (or private pay) can be anywhere from $85-$175 per session. If you are using insurance, speak with your insurance provider before sessions to better understand any co-insurance you are responsible for. If you need help with understanding your benefits we have a dedicated team that would be more than willing to help.

We also accept a variety of insurances so please reach out! 

What’s the difference between talking to you or my best friend or family?

The difference is between someone who can do something, and someone who has the training and experience to do that same thing professionally. A mental health professional can help you approach your situation in a new way– teach you new skills, gain different perspectives, listen to you without judgment or expectations, and help you listen to yourself. Furthermore, therapy is completely confidential. You won’t have to worry about others “knowing my business.” Lastly, if your situation provokes a great deal of negative emotion, if you’ve been confiding in a friend or family member, there is the risk that once you are feeling better you could start avoiding that person so you aren’t reminded of this difficult time in your life.

How does it work? What do I have to do in sessions?

Because each person has different issues and goals for therapy, therapy will be different depending on the individual. We tailor our therapeutic approach to your specific needs.

I want to get the most out of therapy. What can I do to help?

We are so glad you are dedicated to getting the most out of your sessions. Your active participation and dedication is crucial to your success. After all, we only see each other for a session a week. It’s the work you do outside of our sessions that will really help you see your personal growth and development.

My partner and I are having problems. Should we be in individual counseling or come together?

If you are concerned about your relationship, and you would both like to work with us, we would initially work with both of you together. After this work, if one of you would like to continue in individual sessions, we could work with only one of you. It is not helpful to move from individual into couple’s work with the same therapist because of potential trust issues.

We Take Insurance!

Take a courageous first step towards getting to a better place and being a better you.
