Being with ourselves can be difficult at times, and being in an intimate relationship with another person makes it even more challenging. You will need to reckon with not only 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 getting married 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 (including premarital counseling) 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.
