When couples fall on rough times it can impact everything. Communication, eating, sleeping, children, extended family, work, friendships, trust and so much more. Couples therapy allows for a judgement free place where the couple can regroup and learn new communication skills. The results can be life changing. Imagine connecting again. Having real conversations with one another while feeling heard and supported. Solving problems proactively so they don't turn into a fight. Invite the next chapter of your relationship into a happier more satisfying place where you both feel in love again.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Couples in trouble are often spouses who are at odds with each other over unrealistic expectations that true love be their salvation. The spouse who is not the answer to personal unhappiness is blamed as the problem. The answer is to create a "we" that meets the mutual needs of the partners, and creates an environment of safety and security to empower each partner to be more accepting and loving of themselves.

Some therapists may recommend to a particular couple that the partners engage first in individual therapy, separately, before engaging in couples work. If both partners are not able to maintain a certain level of insight, responsibility, and maturity in their communications, couples work will be ineffective. For relationship counseling to significantly help a relationship, each partner needs to have a commitment to the relationship, or, at least to the couples counseling for the time it continues. Each partner must be generally honest, self-aware, and interested in doing relationship work to have an optimal outcome. Some couples need therapy to help end a relationship in a healthy manner.

I am an institute trained couples therapist and couples therapy is my area of specialization. Often I am able to help couples understand their difficulties and take some corrective action in a short time, and then invest more in-depth work to support and stabilize their relationship. Couples seeing me benefit from my interest in what's going on inside each partner that may be contributing to personal and relationship pain, and what's going on between the partners from a system of energy point of view that may be supporting and sustaining their difficulties. I help couples search for humor whenever possible. Learn more about my practice at www.ThriveTherapydoc.com.

Couples counseling involves learning to listen, agreeing to disagree and having mutual respect for self and others. This reaches beyond marriage- it can be any type of relationship. I am currently studying the Gottmann Method for Couples Counseling and know how to facilitate communication skills to bring a clear understanding and better engagement strategies for couples.

Our intimate relationships can be the source of our greatest joy and the place we confront our deepest fears and vulnerabilities. Through the use of an emotionally focused approach, I help couples expand and reorganize their inner experience, develop an awareness of destructive patterns, reconnect with one another and heal from emotional pain. Research on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach: Following EFT, 90% of couples report improvement in their relationship, and indicate that that the changes attained through therapy endure over time. EFT allows couples to have a new experience of one another, and ultimately to create secure connection.

Distress in a couple is often the result of one or both members of the couple trying not to be vulnerable in order to protect themselves from pain and disappointment, but this invulnerability prohibits the flow of more positive emotions that lead to healthier relationships. My experience has been that in order to bring down the walls of self-protection we need to approach the problem from at least four directions: improving communication skills through exercises, understanding the historical issues and expectations that are brought into the relationship, understanding what each individual partner is trying to work through in the relationship, and processing the issues as they arrive in the here a....

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist much of my work is with couples. Couples can be challenged in all stages of the life cycle: Pre-marriage, marital, living together, separating, divorcing, re-marrying, etc. Working with couples is a complex and challenging area of therapy which I particularly enjoy. Often the stakes are high. Helping couples come to a place where each partner is more whole and healthy and the relationship is strong and satisfying is a very gratifying part of my work.

I work with couples to become more conscious and intentional in their interactions. I teach couples specific communication skills to break destructive patterns of relating. I encourage each partner to look and their own behavior and how they may be contributing to the problems. I explore with couples how the problems they are having in their current relationship are related to their experiences in childhood. I work with couples on eliminating reactivity by implementing self-soothing techniques. My goal with couples is to have both partners feel heard and understood by each other.

Many of the challenges faced by couples--married or not--involve an attempt to balance the desire for personal intimacy with the need for a sense of personal autonomy, although this is not necessarily obvious initially. I work with couples to help them achieve such a balance, while helping them develop a sensitivity to each other's needs. I also attempt to generate solutions that are experienced as fair and just by both parties, while maintaining my own impartiality. An especially valuable aspect of couples counseling for some involves evaluating whether the couple is a likely prospect for a marital relationship.

In therapy, you will learn how to identify specific maladaptive behavior patterns and how you and your spouse respond to stress within the marital dynamic. Together, we will observe the dysfunctional behaviors within your marriage and modify them with problem solving and conflict resolution. In doing so, both you and your spouse can begin to understand and transform your patterns into more adaptive, productive behaviors. You will learn how to communicate respectfully and effectively. You will learn how to listen and how to make yourself heard. If you or your spouse comes from an unhealthy, broken or dysfunctional background, it can be helpful to utilize a psychoanalytic approach as part of treatment. In a psychoanalytic approach, we will explore the...(view profile to read more)

Couples are two people who are old enough to enter into a relational partnership without parental approval. I work with lesbians, gays and heterosexual couples. My office is a safe place to discuss challenges that interfere with healthy couple relationships, and other concerns without judgment. Most couples know what's needed to jump start their relationship, but are unable to articulate their desire to one another.

We are also all human, and at times these relationships do not live up to what we had hoped for.

Christopher will guide your as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

I help couples explore the possibility of re-launching their relationship toward one that is more emotionally and physically satisfying. Together, we look at limiting usage of familiar resentment and anger patterns. We discuss if it's possible to give amnesty to each other to transform the relationship into one that is grounded in friendship, where laughter & support exists. Many couples at some point become roommates where deep wounds exist due to loss of intimacy and possible infidelity. I help couples who have children together look at their co-parenting skills and explore ways to become a more "unified front" with their kids, this results in the family functioning together as a unit.
