What happens in Couples Counseling

Even happy couples fall into unhelpful communication patterns. For most of us, these patterns are hard to see clearly in our own relationships. In Couples Counseling you'll start to understand your patterns and get a chance to create a more helpful pattern. Often some small changes can make a big difference in how you communicate and how close you feel. Usually, both partners feel frustrated with something the other person is doing or not doing. The truth is, it's never all one person's fault. We don't even like the idea of "fault" or "blame" in couples therapy. Instead, we focus on the communication pattern. You're both contributing to it without meaning to. The more you do something, the more your partner does something else, and you set each other off into a yucky cycle. We're very experienced at seeing what that pattern is and helping you see it too.

Couples therapy is not all about problems. We know you fell in love for really good reasons. We'll help you build on the strengths that brought you together.
