Couples Therapy, like Family Therapy, is designed to be a short-term, interactive treatment approach. A couples therapist will pay particular attention to the common areas of life that create strains in relationships. Couple relationships often break down either emotionally and/or sexually when disagreements exist in any of these areas.
A frequently cited beginning concern is, “We don’t communicate.” Couples therapy is about challenging this misperception since there is no “not communicating.” In both nonverbal and verbal ways, as well as in stale and emotionally difficult ways, partners always are communicating with each other. Transforming these interactions and ultimately thriving in their relationship is at the heart of effective couples therapy.
