Because it works! It helps with increasing fondness & and admiration. It will also help you manage conflict.

What Is Couples Therapy?
It is a process to help YOU develop a shared picture of your relationship – how it is special as well as its trouble spots.

What are the benefits of good couples therapy?
Research on couples therapy shows that it helps partners with some of the following:
Increase respect, affection, and closeness.
Break through and resolve conflict when you feel stuck.
Generate greater understanding between partners.
Keep conflict discussions calm.

How does couples therapy work?
It’s important to understand that neither you nor your partner is the patient;; it is your relationship that is the patient.

We will work on the following together:
Assess your relationship
Collaborative treatment plan
Practice how to have conversations that turn problems into occasions for intimacy
Turn what is troubling the relationship into a way for deepening it.
Don’t wait too long!

Several studies show that the average couple waits about seven years before reaching out for help. This is too long considering how many tools are out there to help with closeness and conflict. Learn to use these tools to shape your relationship to change in a positive direction, as you and your partner evolve.
