The decision to come for therapy isn’t an easy one to arrive at, and that’s especially true for couples therapy. When I work with couples in therapy, the foundation is a safe and equal space to address whatever the issues may be. Couples bring all kinds of issues. They may be recent problems or long-standing issues that remain unresolved.
Issues vary from relationships that have turned stale, conflict at home, extra-marital affairs or stress caused by a change in dynamics between the couple like illness or change of circumstances like employment.
As we change over time we need to actively maintain our relationship. For issues that aren’t going away at home, a psychotherapist experienced in working with couples can help bring clarity, surface new possibilities and remove barriers to resolution.
