Couples Therapy

Couples therapy, also called marriage therapy or relationship therapy, is a type of therapy designed to help couples interact with each other more productively, resolve conflicts more effectively, and improve the quality of their relationships.

Couples therapy most often includes both partners of the relationship.  However, if one person chooses not to attend, therapy for the other partner often can help shift the relationship in a positive direction.

Couples therapy may be long- or short-term, depending on the situation.

The prospect of working with a therapist to discuss and solve difficulties may seem daunting, but couples therapy is a process with great potential for strengthening the relationship and helping partners lead a satisfying life together. If you would like to explore couples therapy, please call me at (619) 295-7094 or email me at to discuss how I can help you.

Marriage presents one of the most difficult problems in human life; the most emotional as well as the most romantic of all dreams has to be consolidated into an ordinary working relationship.
