Couples Therapy

I offer Couples Therapy to help resolve conflict in your relationship

We will discuss the harmful dynamics that may be present in your relationship

It is no one's fault. Relationships decay on their own for lack of maintenance

We must maintain them

Some harmful dynamics that could be present in your relationship are:

Control, Jealousy, Insecurities, Infidelity, Lack of Sex, Distancing, Detachment, Judgement, Criticism, Contempt, Resentment, Poor Communication Skills, Abandonment, lack of Acceptance, among others

Talking about these issues will allow you to reconnect Physically and Emotionally with your partner

A session is one hour long

If you need more time, there is always more time

Couples benefit from weekly or twice a month sessions

From 4, 8, or 12 sessions. There is no specific number as every relationship is different

I recommend taking 1-3 individual sessions prior to starting with Couples Therapy in order to gather your thoughts, vent, and set your individual goals, such as Emotional Regulation if needed

Especially if your relationship is in high distress

You must be able to Self-Regulate (remain calm) in order to do Couples Therapy

Individual work is necessary to make a relationship work

I can not wait to meet you and help you have a more Loving, Passionate, and Intimate relationship where both of you feel Accepted, Understood, Supported, Valued, Appreciated, and Loved.
