Couples Therapy


No matter where you are in your relationship, we are here to help and guide to a deeper, more meaningful connection, communication and understanding. Therapy can help when you are seeking support on separating, dating, staying together, parenting and/ or seeking support for divorce.

We all desire to feel deeply connected to someone, yet a view people seem to be able to really maintain the emotional intimacy that is needed to sustain a relationship. At the very beginning, this seems to be easy as barriers are down and it’s all about attachment, however, when conflicts start, how can we continue to maintain the safe, open and intimate space? During our therapy sessions together, we will embark on this journey of deepening, learning, taking risks and learning to re-create the safety. We combine IMAGO relationship therapy with Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), IFS with other couples therapy interventions. Please see below.

Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner?

Relationships can be deeply rewarding, but they also come with challenges and conflicts that can strain even the strongest bonds. Couples therapy provides a structured and supportive environment to help partners navigate these difficulties, improve communication, and deepen their emotional connection.

The journey of couples therapy can be challenging, but with commitment, patience, and an open mind, it can lead to a deeper understanding, stronger bond, and a more fulfilling partnership. By investing in your relationship and working with a skilled therapist, you can rediscover the love that brought you together and create a more harmonious future.

The therapist acts as an impartial third party, creating a safe space for couples to express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns openly. Through guided dialogue, exercises, and evidence-based techniques, couples learn to identify negative patterns, improve their communication style, and develop strategies for resolving conflicts effectively.

There are many reasons why couples may seek out therapy. Here are some common ones:

  • Communication problems – Couples often struggle with communication breakdowns, misunderstandings, and difficulty effectively expressing thoughts and feelings.
  • Conflict resolution issues – Recurring conflicts that don’t get resolved in a healthy way can damage a relationship over time. Therapy helps couples develop better conflict resolution skills.
  • Lack of intimacy/connection – Over time, couples may feel they’ve lost the emotional or physical intimacy they once had. Therapy aims to help reignite that closeness.
  • Trust issues – Infidelity, dishonesty or betrayals of trust require repair work in a relationship through therapy.
  • Differences in values/goals – Contrasting values, life goals or major lifestyle choices can create relationship strain that therapy can help navigate.
  • Family/parenting stressors – Adding children, blending families, dealing with in-law dynamics – therapy supports couples through these transitions.
  • Sex/intimacy problems – Differing sexual needs, desire discrepancy or other physical intimacy issues are addresses in sex therapy.
  • Major life transitions – Significant events like job changes, moving, retirement etc. disrupt established patterns and may benefit from therapy.
  • Pre-marital counseling – Some couples seek therapy before marriage to build a strong foundation for their union.

The unifying goal is improving understanding, strengthening the partnership and equipping the couple with skills to work through present and future challenges.
