Premarital Counseling NYCWhat Brings Couples to Seek Couple Counseling?

Couples may be arguing, bickering, and constantly triggering each other, or they may be disconnected, feeling alone, and barely speaking. The common thread in couples seeking services is that their relationship is no longer a safe, loving, and enjoyable space.

We help couples restore the strength and vitality their relationship once had, and show them how to create a conscious partnership focused on valuing each other’s experience. We deepen the emotional connection, restore intimacy, and show couples how to become responsive to their partners’ needs and wants.

When Should We Enter Couple Counseling?

Often times, couples wait too long before seeking help. Anger and resentment could be building for years, destroying connection, safety, and love, which needs to be the foundation for the relationship. As soon as couples, married and unmarried, find themselves in patterns that they can’t break, therapy can be extremely helpful.

  • Lack of satisfaction and enjoyment with your partner
  • Constant bickering and fighting
  • Infidelity
  • Differing ideas of roles, rules, and expectations
  • Difficulty transitioning to a parenting relationship
  • Excessive anger
  • Inherent differences in lifestyle decisions (having children, religion, career)
  • Extended family conflicts
  • Inability for your partner to get why you are hurting

  • Keeping the relationship functioning through one partners’ addiction, past abuse, or chronic illness
  • Lack of intimacy
