Couples therapy or couples counseling is a type of talk therapy that lets both parties in a relationship talk about their problems and feelings in a safe and private environment. By talking through our problems, we better understand ourselves and, with guidance, are often able to make changes that improve our daily lives and relationships.
In couples counseling, you and your partner are able to explore the bigger picture of your relationship and individual interactions. You are given a safe space to explore the patterns of both your individual and couple behavior, as well as find ways to be more conscious of your actions and decisions.
Couples counseling helps couples of all types to explore recognize, and resolve conflicts in an effort to improve their relationships and interactions. Through counseling, you can be provided with the tools to make thoughtful and intentional decisions about your relationship.
