In couples therapy couples learn to identify and stop the recurring patterns in the relationship that cause hurt, rejection, and feelings of abandonment. Once this occurs couples are safe enough to learn a new way to communicate without judgement or blaming. The ability to identify deeper more vulnerable needs and feelings leads to a sense of trust and a bond of secure connection. We all have baggage that can interfere with closeness until we can resolve what is necessary.

Behavioral Marital Therapy is used focusing on individual responsibility for his/her actions and level of satisfaction in the relationship.Couples identify desired changes in behavior and then talking about new actions. Couples make agreements or contracts and learned communication and problem solving. Self-regulation on the part of both partners to achieve mutual satisfaction in the relationship was embraced as a key component to what was increasingly called "couples counseling" rather than "marital counseling".
