What is Couples Counseling?

Couples Counseling is a type of therapy that helps to improve communication and connectedness in a romantic relationship. Counseling provides a calm and collaborative environment where each person can do their best thinking and also hear their spouse’s concerns and ideas. With practice and insight, a couple can be empowered to take these skills and apply them at home.

Couples or Marriage Counseling typically involves both partners, but sometimes one partner chooses to work with the therapist individually for a short period of time. There also does not have to be an active problem for you to benefit from couples counseling. Many people find that thinking out loud with a counselor before marriage, the birth of a child, or other life transitions can strengthen the relationship and improve collaborative problem-solving.
