What Issues Does Couples Therapy Help?
There are many issues in a relationship that couples therapy can help to resolve. Some specific areas where we can help include:
- Anger/ Fighting that escalates to uncomfortable levels
- Chronic, repetitive arguments that never get resolved
- Parenting issues and conflicting philosophies and ideas about parenting
- Infidelity issues
With the help of a skilled couples therapist, couples can learn new, more effective ways of speaking and listening to one another. And couples will learn to recognize what makes things go wrong in the relationship, how both members of a couple feed into these destructive patterns and ultimately how to create an intimate and loving relationship.
During this time, which usually lasts 1-3 sessions, therapist hears about what is bringing the person in for help and together the therapist and client discuss a treatment plan.
