Therapy for Couples
Enhance intimacy and deepen your relationship.
If you are in a relationship completely free from conflict, I might argue you aren’t in a relationship at all. Disagreements, arguments, and hurt feelings are bound to occur in any relationship and will inevitably arise in a marriage or committed partnership.
” The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.“
Couples come to therapy for any number of reasons, like:
- Constant bickering
- Having the same arguments over the same things
- Physical intimacy
- Starting a family
- Parenting styles
- Traumatic events
- (and many, many more)
It might surprise you to know the root of most disagreements is communication. And that’s good news. Couples Therapy can help you and your partner learn new ways to communicate and avoid or resolve issues that result in conflict.
Silence isn’t always golden. It is important to learn to speak your mind rather than assume your partner will read and understand your moods or body language, which are open for misinterpretation.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist [LMFT], I can help you gain insight into your relationship and resolve conflicts by changing or improving your method of communication. Couples Therapy can enhance intimacy and promote closeness. Through therapy, you can learn how to deepen your friendship and find ways to show genuine affection toward each other.
I also conduct Premarital Counseling utilizing Prepare/Enrich.
Marriage is a lifelong commitment to one another and each other’s family. But, according to the American Psychological Association, 40%-50% of marriages end in divorce. Research has shown that Premarital Counseling reduces the divorce rate by 30%. So, you can think of Premarital Counseling as an investment in your marriage, happiness, and lifelong commitment to your partner.
As a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator, I utilize Prepare/Enrich’s proven assessment and feedback resources to foster resilient relationships and marriages.
You can learn more about Prepare/Enrich through their website at https://www.prepare-enrich.com/
