Healthy relationships lay the foundation for a happy, meaningful life. Sense of belonging through relationships and search for that bond with a significant other, community or family are powerful driving forces. Let's work together to build your confidence in navigating relationships, from communication and emotional skills to complex dynamics affecting how you are seen by your partner and how you understand him or her in return. As a couple evolves, differences or lack of effective connection and communication can lead to building resentment, fighting, and hostility. Perhaps your relationship is going great but you still want to utilize the latest understandings of how to make it even better.
All therapy sessions are by appointment only and last 45-55 minutes. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, which means your therapist will work to devise a plan based on you and your partner's unique needs. For more information, we recommend visiting the Payments and Insurance page.
How Couples Counseling Works
There's not one single approach that works for everybody, so each person's journey will look different. The first session is typically spent learning more about each individual person and your relationship as a couple, kind of like an assessment. It's crucial that your therapist gets to know each of you on a personal level, and while these facts may seem insignificant to you, they are important to understanding your whole story and how that plays into your relationships. Since the first session sometimes involves a lot of questions and there’s not a lot of actual therapy happening, people may become discouraged or believe this isn't what they signed up for. Don’t worry, this is just part of the process that allows your therapist to get to know each of you!
After our initial meetings and assessments, we establish goals for you individually and as a couple. Every session might look a little different too, sometimes you'll come in separately, sometimes you'll come in together, with the goal of improving your overall relationship.
