Couples therapy is specific to issues within or related to the intimate dyad or subsystem of a family including people who are dating, cohabiting, and/or married, both same and opposite sex. We meet with couples who face issues and challenges and seek therapy as a means to enrich their relationship, resolve their conflicts, improve communication, and/or address a great number of other issues. All too often, couples get stuck in a pattern of interaction that creates and maintains problems related to their partner or an external stress. The inability to shift out of that pattern can often perpetuate problems to the point where the problem becomes unmanageable or debilitating. Couples therapy offers a way for partners to move past ineffective patterns and communicate in a more satisfying way.
