Couples Therapy/Marriage Therapy/Relationship Counseling
Partners come into couples counseling or marriage counseling with a variety of issues to address: communication & conflict resolution, sexual & intimacy issues, fighting and anger problems, identity and role conflict, dependence vs. independence, jealousy, parenting, infidelity, finances, family and in-law struggles, step family issues, gender roles, and many more.
We want to help you form better relationships. Our team of couple therapists is specially trained in addressing issues like emotional distance, poor communication, the challenges of parenting, sex and intimacy, infidelity, financial stress, work-life balance, and so much more.
And if you are choosing to end your relationships or divorce, we have the expertise to guide you through the difficult steps ahead.
Our therapists are trained in the Gottman Method. Gottman Method Couples Therapy helps to “disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship” (John and Julie Gottman).
In his New York Times bestselling book The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work, Dr. John Gottman writes, “Although you may feel your situation is unique, we have found that all marital conflicts fall into two categories: Either they can be resolved, or they are perpetual, which means they will be part of your lives forever, in some form or another.” Gottman says that 69% of marital conflicts are perpetual problems, and these are of particular focus in much of the work performed by Gottman-trained therapists.
