Relationships can be difficult and require a lot of work and commitment. Sometimes, through life's troubles, relationships suffer. Couples counseling is a type of therapy where a trained mental health therapist meets with both partners in session to resolve conflicts and improve relationships. Through couples counseling, you make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding and strengthen your relationship or going your separate ways.
In couples therapy, your therapist will work with you to increase your bond, develop positive communication skills, nurture affection for one another, and if you choose, create a lasting and fulfilling relationship. If, as a couple, you choose to part, your therapist can help mediate difficult family choices, separate amicably, and develop a foundation of mutual respect through a hard period in your life.
