Couples therapy, marriage therapy, or relationship counseling is the gold standard psychological treatment for relationship issues. It includes confidential sessions under the guidance of an expert where you and your partner will have the opportunity to deepen your emotional connection, hear and learn from one another, and address difficult issues to create a stronger, healthier relationship.

Your relationship is a system.

Think of your relationship as a system or culture shaped by both of you. In couples therapy, we’ll help you identify the kind of relationship culture you want to create and then guide you in building it.

It’s not just arguing.

You might think that couples therapy is just about sitting down and arguing in front of a therapist. We assure you it’s not. Sure, the intense feelings need to come out, and our role is to help you address them. We promise a controlled environment where difficult topics are addressed with respect and care.

We handle the uncomfortable truth. 

Whether it’s issues like violence, anger, substance abuse, or infidelity, these problems can be confronted with a professional therapist. This requires you to be open and honest about how the relationship has been hurt so that we can help you grow and heal.

We welcome all relationships. 

Whether you’re in a second marriage, a same-sex relationship, a long-term partnership outside of marriage, or part of a blended family, you’ll find the support and guidance you need here 

Lastly, remember that couples therapy is hard work. It requires both of you to be committed and honest about what isn’t working and why. This commitment is often the foundation for meaningful and lasting change in relationships.

Whether your relationship is struggling or you just want to take it to a new level, couples therapy in Arlington can help. We draw from a variety of methods to find what suits you best, including the Gottman Method, Imago Relationship Therapy, and Discernment Counseling. Our expert therapists will give you the tools and strategies you need for your relationship to subsequently benefit over a lifetime.

Do I Need Couples Therapy?

It’s a common misconception that you need to be in crisis to seek couples therapy. That’s far from the truth. Therapy can also be about creating a better partnership, gaining more intimacy, and finding new joys in your relationship. No relationship is perfect, and it’s essential to let go of any idealism. Your partnership might be imperfect, even messy, but it can still be full of love and happiness.

However, if you or your loved one are suffering from any of the following relationship issues, couples therapy is recommended:

  • Frequent arguments and misunderstandings
  • Communication difficulties 
  • Keeping things exciting
  • Infidelity or trust Issues
  • Trouble with intimacy
  • Feeling misunderstood or distant
  • Differing goals and values
  • Financial pressure
  • Major life changes
  • Disagreements on how to raise children 
  • Feeling undervalued or disrespected
  • Verbal, emotional, or physical abuse
  • Loss or Trauma
  • Addiction or substance abuse
  • And much more!

Remember, seeking therapy is a sign of strength and commitment to your relationship. If any of these issues resonate with your current situation, couples therapy in Arlington could be the solution.

Don’t wait for a crisis. Take action now.
