Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy that can help you and your partner repair and/or strengthen your marriage or relationship.

During a typical couples counseling session, a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in couples or marriage therapy in Delray Beach can guide partners toward the healthy expression of thoughts and feelings in a way that can be understood by one’s partner, and then begin the process of untangling and resolving core issues that keep you both stuck. Effective, evidence-based therapy increased positive outcomes such as respect, affection, and intimacy.

What can I expect from my first couples therapy session?

During your very first therapy session, you will have the opportunity to address the reasons for seeking help and what you hope to achieve.  That said, partners will be mentored in healthy communication patterns that foster an increased understanding of each other’s needs and wants.  Healthy communication allows each partner to, at least, be heard and understood, which then opens the process of more in-depth exploration of issues requiring resolution.

Common stressors, which include parenting, family intrusions, alcoholic and drug abuse, money, career, and physical or emotional abuse, will be explored in terms of their impact on marital satisfaction.  Subsequent sessions will allow for further exploration of these issues and ways of increasing positive outcomes.
