Does it seem that you and your partner cannot communicate? Are fights a regular occurrence? Do you hate your spouse? Are you unhappy in your relationship? Marital tension and conflict have a rippling effect onto our performance at work, onto our children and spill out- leaving us depleted. Couples therapy provides a safe space for individuals to sort through issues with a neutral party that is not focused on one individual, but rather the relationship. Typically, the couple meets with the therapist together for the initial couple’s therapy session. The couple’s counselor will then meet with each party individually during separate sessions, so that each party feels heard. After the individual meetings, the remainder of the sessions will be together.
