Just as every couple is different, what brings couples into couples therapy can vary widely as well. There are many benefits to trying couples counseling and you do not have to be at the brink of divorce in order to benefit. For example, you can improve how and when to communicate, learn about your and your partner’s “buttons” or “triggers” and how to best deal with them, recover from infidelity, protect your relationship from “outsiders” (i.e., in-laws, kids, jobs), learn how to address problems without feeling weak, understand how each partner may be contributing to a concern, and learn more about what is behind each other’s behavior.

Relationship concerns can be a broad topic; some couples may want to strengthen their current relationship, work on a specific issue within the relationship, there may be sexual concerns, and others may have had a recent break up or divorce. Individually or with your partner, we can work together to help you get your needs met. Call or email today for an appointment.

I believe relationships are critical for our best functioning. Good relationships can help us to soar and poor relationships can tear us down. Sometimes things can become difficult in a relationship and both people feel stuck. It can helpful to participate in couples counseling to help both of you decide what you are missing and how you can have a positive and loving relationship. I will work with you to understand what are your relationship blocks and how you can move forward in a healthier, more satisfying fashion.

Every couple needs to accommodate to each other in three crucial areas--each more difficult than the previous one. First, division of labor in the home they build together. Second, issues relating to what they consider "normal"--but which really come from their family of origin. These issues focus on such areas as drinking, managing money, and public displays of affection. The third and most difficult area is the delicate balance in every relationship between intimacy and autonomy. I often find that a "problematic" behavior on the part of one member of a couple is really generated (unconsciously) by the client's need for space or closeness. One must help each to understand the other's needs.

Couples Counseling can greatly benefit relationships that are struggling! New & healthier ways of communicating with each other can be learned.

Couples that engage in counseling often experience less stress, anxiety & depression in their individual lives as well as in their relationships!

At Lepage Associates, we believe many issues couples face can be resolved by addressing the issues on two levels. The first level is identifying the problem, brainstorming solutions, and trying out options that can work for both partners. The deeper level usually involves understanding what about the issue is important to each partner and communicating this understanding to each other. Your couple’s therapist at Lepage Associates can help you on both of these levels in order to reach goals like increasing your connection, improving communication, recovering from infidelity, increasing sexual satisfaction, and improving conflict resolution skills. We believe each partner has contributed to problem....
