Could you use some help thinking through important decisions like whether or not to have kids? Do you and your partner have different hopes and desires for the future? Are you struggling to heal after one of you lied or cheated? Whatever your relationship needs, Couples Therapy at Wright Institute Los Angeles can help!
What is Couples Therapy?
Couples therapy is joint counseling for you and your romantic partner. The therapist sees both partners together in order to facilitate healthy communication and to identify harmful patterns of relating in the relationship. Working together with a therapist will help both of you gain a deeper understanding of what the other is going through and to learn to share responsibility for your relationship. If you are experiencing confusion and tension in your relationship, are having issues related to sex, intimacy and fidelity, or would like to deepen your connection to your partner, couples counseling might be right for you.
Is Couples Therapy Right for Your Relationship?
All relationships face conflict and periods of stress. Couples therapy can help whether you’ve reached a breaking point or are simply trying to find more intimacy before the problems begin. At WILA, we believe it’s never too late – or too early – to spend some time focusing on your relationship. Here are some of the types of Couples Therapy we offer:
- Couples Counseling
- LGBTQIA friendly couples counseling
- Marriage Counseling
- Premarital Counseling
- Joint therapy for those who are separated but considering reuniting
- Co-parenting Counseling
- Any other non-traditional relationships
What to Expect in Couples Therapy
At WILA, we work dynamically to help you identify and understand how early relationships in life influence current ones. We believe in the importance of partners understanding one another’s past in order to develop empathy, foster healthy communication and increase acceptance. Having a safe emotional space to work through relationship issues fosters honesty and can be a key component to helping your relationship thrive. If you are already in individual therapy, and you are in a relationship, couples counseling may help to address issues specific to your relationship.
