Clinical Services for Couples & Families


Couples often need guidance in how to communicate and develop skills that will help them relate more effectively.  For instance, couples with strained relationships, sexual difficulties, or fertility challenges can learn how to discuss these issues in ways that can improve their interactions and/or ease their adjustment to distressing circumstances. Therapy can also guide couples in their discussions of difficult issues such as divorce/separation, remarriage, parenting and step parenting, adoption, physical and mental illness, sexual dysfunction, infidelity, intimacy, addictions, co-dependency, grief/loss, job change and financial distress. Therapists can also facilitate change in strained relationships within the family unit and address ongoing discord. Our therapists are specifically trained in empirically validated treatment approaches for couples.  Therapeutic approaches that our therapists utilize include, Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT), and Gottman Relationship TherapyWe work with couples to address a broad range of issues, and if you are uncertain whether individual, couples, or family therapy would best meet your needs, we can certainly discuss this important decision with you.
