What Can Couples Therapy Help Treat?

Couples therapy, or dyadic therapy, helps address relationship issues between partners or spouses and can also be beneficial for parent-child conflicts. It provides a platform for improving communication, understanding relationship dynamics, and resolving conflicts in healthy, constructive ways.

Couples therapy can help you navigate through complex emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, and it is particularly effective for addressing concerns such as:

  • Communication issues
  • Financial conflicts
  • Parenting issues
  • Blended family issues
  • Substance misuse
  • Sexual concerns
  • Trust issues

How Our Couples Counseling Options Help Improve Mental Health

Your couples therapy plan may involve a variety of evidence-based therapies, including emotionally focused therapy (EFT), to support your mental health and overall well-being. EFT is designed to help couples understand and reorganize their emotional responses toward each other. By focusing on the emotional bonds and attachment issues, this therapy aims to strengthen the connection between partners, enhancing intimacy and trust.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect during our first couples therapy session?

In your initial couples therapy session, you and your partner will meet with your therapist in a welcoming and confidential environment to discuss the challenges you’re facing together. This session serves as a chance for both of you to share your perspectives, relationship history, and what you hope to achieve through therapy.

Your therapist will likely ask questions to understand the dynamics of your relationship better and may outline a preliminary approach to your joint treatment. This is also the perfect time for you and your partner to voice any questions or concerns and to start building a connection with your therapist.

How often do we need to attend couples counseling sessions?

The frequency of your couples therapy sessions will be tailored to your relationship’s specific needs and the goals you’re working towards. While weekly sessions are common at the start to maintain momentum and address issues more intensively, the schedule may adjust over time based on your progress and your therapist’s recommendations.

How do I know if couples therapy is right for us?

Couples therapy can be beneficial for partners facing communication breakdowns, trust issues, dissatisfaction, or those seeking to strengthen their relationship. If you’re contemplating whether couples therapy is the right step, consider arranging a consultation with ResWell. Our experts can help clarify your concerns, set clear objectives, and provide insight into how therapy might address your relationship’s particular challenges.

How does couples therapy differ from other forms of therapy?

Couples therapy is specifically designed to address concerns within the context of a romantic relationship, focusing on improving communication, resolving conflicts, and enhancing connection between partners. Unlike individual therapy, which concentrates on the individual’s issues and personal development, couples therapy involves both partners working collaboratively with the therapist to explore relationship patterns, understand each other’s perspectives, and make mutual changes.

Do you offer telehealth appointments for couples counseling?

The first meeting is usually in person. Although we do offer telehealth appointments, we strongly encourage participation through in-person couples therapy sessions for improved efficacy of treatment. Specific scheduling depends on the treatment plan developed with your provider.

Do you accept insurance for couples therapy?

While we do not accept insurance, we provide patients with the documentation necessary to file a claim with their insurance carriers.
