Renew Your Relationship & Build a Stronger Bond

Seeking professional help is crucial for couples who are struggling to build healthy and lasting relationships. ChangeWell Psych is here to help you achieve that goal! Some issues that might lead an individual to seek couples therapy include:

Who Is Couples Therapy For?

It’s not uncommon for couples to face difficulties and conflicts. Seeking support can help strengthen the relationship and create a healthier, happier partnership.

Some examples of what might bring a couple to therapy are listed below. If you do not fall into one of these categories that is okay, there are a variety of other reasons couples come to therapy!

Couples who are engaged may seek therapy to work through any issues that may arise before they get married. This can include discussing expectations, values, and goals for your future together.

Many couples come to therapy to improve their communication skills. This can include learning how to express needs and emotions more effectively, as well as how to actively listen and respond to their partner’s needs.

Couples who have recently gotten married may seek therapy to work through any challenges they are facing as they adjust to married life and navigate their new roles and responsibilities.

Couples who are struggling with infertility or adoption-related issues may seek therapy to help them process their feelings and work through any relationship challenges that may arise.

Neurodivergent partners, or couples where one or both partners have a neurological condition such as autism, ADHD, or other related conditions, often face unique relationship challenges that can be difficult to navigate without professional support. Some of the common issues that neurodivergent couples may face include (but are not limited to): communication difficulties, sensory issues, emotional regulation, and differences in social expectations.

Many couples seek therapy to address conflicts that have arisen in their relationship. This can include conflicts related to money, sex, parenting, etc.

Researched-Based Approach to Connection & Intimacy

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) is a highly effective evidence-based approach to strengthening relationships. It is a short-term, structured therapy that focuses on creating a safe and supportive atmosphere where couples can explore their emotions and work towards building deeper and more meaningful connections.

EFT works by helping couples identify and understand their primary emotions (fear, desire for connection, etc). These primary emotions are often masked by secondary reactive emotions such as anger and defensiveness. By creating a safe space to access these primary emotions, couples can begin to address the underlying issues that affect their relationship.

One of the main benefits of EFT is that it emphasizes the importance of attachment in relationships. By exploring the patterns and dynamics of attachment, couples can gain a deeper understanding of how their actions and emotions are connected. This understanding can help form stronger, more secure bonds and overcome any negative patterns that may be holding them back.

If you and your partner are struggling with communication, intimacy, or other relationship issues, EFT can be an effective solution.

Frequently Asked Questions for Marriage & Couples Therapy

Any couple can benefit from couples therapy! Some more specific signs that your relationship can benefit from couples therapy include: ongoing conflict, lack of intimacy, communication breakdowns, feeling disconnected from your partner, or difficulty resolving issues on your own.

We want you to have direction in your couples therapy work. Collaborative goal setting can include: develop more communication skills; increase emotional and sexual intimacy; improve conflict management skills; understand attachment wound patterns; and feel closer to your loved one.

We apply evidence-based Emotion Focused Therapy for relationship work. First, we will assess the issues in the relationship and interactional cycle that is keeping you and your loved one(s) stuck. Through this process, we’ll identify your attachment patterns and ways that you cope when triggered. To build de-escalation skills, we’ll work on reframing problems, building connection, and identifying shared goals. In sum, your therapist will help you identify patterns of behavior that may be contributing to problems in your relationship and provide you with tools and strategies to address them.

Couples therapy can help improve a relationship that’s struggling, but it’s not a guarantee that the relationship will be saved. Whether a relationship can be saved depends on a variety of factors, for instance the willingness of both partners to work on the relationship.

It’s not uncommon for partners to have different goals for therapy. Your therapist will work with you to identify common goals and develop a treatment plan that addresses both of your needs. They’ll also help you communicate your needs and concerns to your partner in a productive way.

Absolutely! We honor all relationships. We want to provide a safe, inclusive, and non-judgmental space for you to work through your relationship needs. Our process is systemic and integrative, meaning that we recognize that societal and familial stressors are an important part of relational stress.
