KFTAs we begin to get honest with one another, we recognize old stories from our relationship, our families modeling, and our cultures expectations that limit our potential for greater understanding and connection. Couples and relational therapists take a non-blaming, impartial stance in order to help shift the problems in clients lives from a singular issue to a relational dynamic. In interpersonal therapy, the relationship is the “client,” affected by each individuals past experiences, present feelings and future aspirations. We are better able to collaborate in overcoming obstacles if the burden of fault is less overbearing for one individual. Practicing intentionality and accountability can foster a shared responsibility for the future. A couples therapist acts as a guide in the healing process, creating a safe space to explore greater vulnerability with one another.

Couples counseling can be a great resource while you’re going through a specific life event, from the stress of work to navigating relationships with family members to the addition of children or other partners. Creating purposeful space to connect can foster reunification of a bond that’s splintered due to no fault of either member.

Creating a therapeutic space to unpack complicated belief systems or culturally taboo topics (surrounding finances, for example) exploring consensual non-monogamy or recovering from infidelity, couples therapists often employ an integrated approach to treatment. Borrowing techniques from different forms of therapy, depending on your needs, in session, we may utilize psychoeducation and techniques based on Gottman research, IMAGO dialogue to improve communication and greater understanding of attachment styles to break out of stuck patterns and connect emotionally.

Although gaining insight is important, another crucial aspect of couples therapy involves actually changing behaviors. Couples therapists will often assign partners homework to apply the skills they have learned in therapy to their day-to-day interactions. Building off your unique strengths, we will cultivate equanimity through quality time or deliberate shared experiences. A clinician who is knowledgeable in sex therapy can help cultivate interventions to increase intimacy and physical connection.

While over three-fourths of those receiving marital/couples or family therapy report an improvement in the couple relationship, even the very best therapist can’t save certain relationships. And sometimes couples come to therapy not even sure that they want their relationship to be saved. The most important thing is a commitment to working to improve the relationship, whatever form it takes. Even if the relationship ultimately doesn’t work, the ability to process the loss of connection allows for greater integration and improves your ability to flourish in future relationships should you so desire.

Couples therapy tends to be more short-term and goal-oriented, with the therapist helping clients identify how to make lasting changes in their present relationship. It often has the added benefit of altering outlooks on romantic, familial, and even platonic co-working relationships or friendships. People report feeling more connected to their partner and their own feelings, as well as more secure, spontaneous, and playful in the relationship. When people feel more secure in their relationship, they can become more assertive and adventurous in other parts of their life.

Couples therapy is all about cultivating a space to strengthen an aspect of your relationship — to provide ongoing support as you move through life together.

In Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT), the unit of treatment isn’t just the person – even if only a single person is interviewed – it is the set of relationships in which the person is embedded. MFTs take a holistic perspective to health care; they are concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families.

Marriage and Family Therapists are mental health professionals trained in psychotherapy and family systems and licensed to assess and treat mental and emotional disorders. They do so within the context of all relationship structures including marriage, couples and family systems. Marriage and family therapists treat a wide range of serious clinical problems including: depression, marital problems, anxiety, individual psychological problems, and child-parent problems.

After receiving treatment, almost 90% of clients report an improvement in their emotional health, and nearly two-thirds report an improvement in their overall physical health. A majority of clients report an improvement in their functioning at work.
