Couples Therapy

Life is hard. Therapy can help.

The quality of our lives depends on the quality of our relationships. We want to be seen, heard, and known for who we are, to have our accomplishments celebrated and our suffering comforted.

People often assume that seeking help for their relationship means that a breakup is looming in the near future. On the contrary, many mostly happy couples pursue counseling to achieve a greater sense of satisfaction and to work through “normal” ups and downs associated with long-term relationships.

Couples therapy offers new ways of engaging with one another because relationships work best when we can experience the pleasure of being with one another and have our needs met.

Argue less, experience satisfying physical intimacy, and feel heard, understood, and deeply appreciated by your partner. These are some of the most common goals for couples counseling. Therapy can help rebuild trust, support you through life transitions, and give you the tools to navigate life together with love and compassion.

It can feel frustrating and disheartening when relationships feel fraught with distress, communication problems, and a lack of intimacy. It might be tempting to fall into the trap of thinking that “if only my partner would be different, we wouldn’t have this problem,” but the truth is that intimate relationships are complex and ALL relationships have challenges to navigate and difficult situations to overcome.
