Couples therapy is joint counseling for you and your romantic partner. The therapist sees both partners together in order to facilitate healthy communication and to identify harmful patterns of relating to the relationship. Working together with a therapist will help both of you gain a deeper understanding of what the other is going through and learn to share responsibility for your relationship. If you are experiencing confusion and tension in your relationship, are having issues related to sex, intimacy, and fidelity, or would like to deepen your connection to your partner, couples counseling might be right for you.
When the person you fell in love with starts to become someone that you feel you need to guard yourself or distance yourself from, it can be devastating. It can start to feel like no matter what the topic is, you end up in an argument and feeling more and more disconnected. Despite your best effort to repair the damage somehow you seem to keep falling short.
