Within couples therapy, individuals have the chance to acquire enhanced skills for identifying, effectively communicating about, and resolving sources of stress and conflict in their relationships. This process can also lead to the discovery of methods for deepening feelings of closeness, increasing attraction, and enhancing the sexual aspect of the relationship. Furthermore, couples therapy offers the opportunity to learn how to embrace and coexist with differences while maintaining a joyful and harmonious partnership.

Many insurance plans typically provide coverage for couples therapy when one or both partners are grappling with issues like anxiety, depression, or other symptoms arising from relationship conflicts, or when independent mental health conditions of either partner affect the relationship. We strongly suggest discussing your potential eligibility for insurance coverage with your therapist at the outset of treatment and also reaching out to your insurance plan for clarification.

It’s important to note that our relationship therapy, in line with all our services, is affirming and inclusive of the LGBTQIA+ community.
