Being with ourselves can occasionally be difficult, and being in an intimate relationship with another person makes it even more challenging. Not only do you need to reckon with your own complexity, but also that of your partner. This process is likely compounded by the ever evolving dynamics between the two of you. These challenges may be further stressed by life transitions: a career change, illness, or starting a family. Couples’ therapy can provide a safe space where you and your partner can effectively explore emotions more deeply, communicate respective needs and wishes, and make decisions that are mutually acceptable. Ultimately, couples’ therapy can help you develop the capacity and skills to communicate more clearly, solve problems more effectively, and to nurture and sustain a relationship of greater intimacy and fulfillment.
Depending on your needs, couples’ therapy sessions can be arranged for longer than 50 minutes.
