Couples Therapy

Couples Counseling – Marriage Counseling

We are all deeply molded by our relationships with each other. These relationships are formed and bonded by the connections we create with others, like our early caregivers who provided the foundation for the way we function in our relationships today.  Sometimes, this foundation isn’t as strong as we need. Our relationships today can tilt on this rocky foundation, affected by past issues and present forces like the myriad of daily stresses and commitments we face. Couples therapy can help shore up and rebuild the foundation of the relationship.

You’ll learn to:

  • Become friends again and rekindle intimacy
  • Learn to communicate effectively and manage conflict
  • Build and repair trust and commitment
  • Turn towards each other and create shared meaning in your lives together

You’ll also learn about the fundamental ways our connections to others can enrich our lives as they support a healthy mind and promote integration in our brains, guiding us in creating the relationships that are best for us.

Our time together?

Our sessions together will last 50 minutes. There may be times we decide together that we need a longer session and that would be negotiable – generally 85 minutes.
The first session will be a time for us to get to know a little about each other, and  complete any remaining paperwork. We’ll also get a detailed idea of where we want to go, and how to achieve your goals in therapy. I’ll explain my process, and we’ll put together a plan that works best, knowing that it is flexible and open to change.
The second session together will consist of an interview with specific questions I will present to you as a couple. Your answers will help me understand the timeline of your relationship and we’ll explore your relationships with family and friends. We’ll also discuss what each of you would like to see in the relationship going forward. You will be given some homework to complete over the next couple of weeks.

The third and fourth sessions will be individual sessions with each of you.

The fifth session will be back  together where we will discuss the homework and priorities for moving forward in our sessions.
How often should we meet?
It is important to meet once a week, and unless otherwise agreed upon, both partners need be there for the work to be effective. There may come a point when we wish to move to every other week as you will be working on skills that  you learn.
