Couples therapy, also known as marriage counseling is a type of psychotherapy that places emphasis on both partners. Couples therapy helps couples of all types regardless of sexual orientation or marital status recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. At the conclusion of this short-term, strategic counseling, partners can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding and strengthening their relationship or peacefully going their separate ways.

Some couples seek marriage counseling to strengthen their partnership or to gain a better understanding of their partner. Couples work can also help couples that desire to get married. Premarital counseling can help couples achieve better communication and a deeper understanding of each other. One of the pros of premarital work is that couples can iron out differences before marriage. Oftentimes, couples seek marriage counseling to improve a troubled relationship. Some of the most common issues that couples seek mediation for include:

  • Communication problems
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Financial challenges
  • Cultural differences
  • Infidelity
  • Anger
  • Pregnancy & infertility issues
  • Conflicts about child rearing or blended families
  • Difficult in-law relationships
  • Substance use disorder
  • Emotional disconnect and unmet needs
