Human beings are designed to yearn for connection, love and relationships. Relationships can be rewarding, yet challenging as they progress. Differing values, beliefs, and cultural or spiritual implications can cause strain and challenges within the relationship. Mental health and substance abuse concerns can further damage a couple and the relationship that has been built.
Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy where a trained clinician works with a couple. Couples counseling focuses on the relational dynamics between the couple. Some of the most common reasons to seek couples counseling include disagreements over finances, parenting styles, and sex or intimacy. Couples counseling is different than individual counseling. The clinician will meet with the couple together on mutually agreed upon goals rather than each person within the couple separately.

WHAT INVOLVED IN COUPLES COUNSELING?
The first few sessions of couples therapy may be geared towards establishing a relationship with the clinician. Couples counseling may involve disclosing private and sensitive information. It is important to be able to trust and feel safe and connected with the clinician. As a relationship is established and built, the clinician may begin collecting information and insight into the couple’s past. The clinician may assist the couple in identifying difficulties and challenges within the relationship and goals the couple wants to achieve.
If you and your loved one are looking to strengthen your relationship, couples counseling at Harmony Bay may be the right fit. Our clinicians are trained to provide individualized and compassionate couples counseling.
