What is Couples Therapy?

Couples therapy can help you improve your relationship by teaching you how to effectively communicate, solve problems together, understand what your shared values and interests are and how to accept and make room for differences. Using scientifically supported techniques, an NYC therapist can help you decrease conflict, resentment, and loneliness, while also cultivating intimacy, pleasure, excitement, and stability in your relationship. Improving your relationship satisfaction is something that takes work, but can often be done.

You can expect a skilled NYC couples therapist to assess your strengths and weaknesses as a couple, identify any current problems, historical patterns, and set goals for therapy. Then, you’ll collaboratively develop an understanding of the reason why problems exist and learn skills necessary to solve these problems.
