Couples Therapy

Careers, kids, family conflict, societal pressures, and life changes can all impact relationships. Perhaps these external stressors have depleted the energy you once devoted to each other? Or, you may be feeling lost and frustrated, struggling to find the answer to why things aren’t the way they used to be in your relationship. Wherever you are on your relationship journey, our team can help.

At Action, couples counseling sessions focus on finding a way for each partner to get their individual needs met through a foundation of healthy  communication. Your counselor will partner with you to: increase intimacy and friendship; overcome barriers in your relationship; resolve conflict and repair past hurts; and to support each individual in fostering a sense of
empathy and understanding for one another. Together, you’ll learn how to recognize issues and address them with a positive perspective and stronger sense of connection.

“To make a relationship last: couples must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create new ways to support each other’s hopes and dreams.” Dr. John Gottman, psychologist, professor emeritus of psychology at the University of Washington, has worked over four decades on divorce prediction and marital stability.
