Rebuild Your Most Important Relationships with Your Partner and Yourself

Couples Therapy, Marriage Counseling in San Jose, Morgan Hill, Fremont, CA - Therapy for Every Body

Few things are more agonizing than having all of your interactions with the person you care about most turn into arguments or, even worse, to feel like you have nothing to share at all.

Of course, every couple experiences challenges from time to time. However, when you feel like you’ve done everything you can to connect in a positive way and nothing seems to help, after a while you may stop trying.

But that doesn’t mean the pain of not being able to connect goes away. And that pain can follow us into everything else we do, slowly sucking all of the joy out of life.

Believe it or not, that pain is the good news. It means you still have hope that you can rebuild your relationship. And you can! In fact, you can make your relationship better than it’s ever been. That’s precisely what marriage counseling and couples therapy are all about.

Contact us today, schedule a free, 15-minute, initial phone consultation, and discover how couples and marriage counseling can help you and your partner re-connect, communicate more effectively, better understand one another, and create the loving relationship you desire and deserve.

Why Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy?

Couples Therapy, Marriage Counseling in San Jose, Morgan Hill, Fremont, CA - Therapy for Every Body

Every couple goes through the “honeymoon phase,” in which we idealize our partners and think that they can do no wrong. But nothing lasts forever.

When you share your life with another person, reality is going to kick in eventually, and you’re going to realize that your partner is just as imperfect as you are. After all, we’re all human. We’re all learning, and we all make mistakes.

You’re going to go through good times and bad, and keeping your relationship working is going to take work.

Couples can face a host of issues, including:

  • An increase in the frequency or intensity of arguments;
  • Difficulties communicating effectively;
  • Navigating the delicate balance between closeness and personal space;
  • Dealing with a partner’s anxiety, stress, or depression;
  • Learning to parent together as a team;
  • Disconnects between each partner’s sexual desires and libido;
  • Healing and rebuilding trust after an infidelity or some other form of betrayal;
  • Coming up with compromises and agreements that meet both partners needs; and
  • Making sure each partner feels listened to, respected, understood, and cared for.

Couples counseling and therapy can help you work through and resolve all of these issues, and many others.

Perhaps most importantly of all, in order to communicate effectively, understand, and love another person, we need to be able to do the same with ourselves.

If you don’t really understand your own wants and needs, you’ll find it next to impossible to communicate your desires to another.

Learning to understand yourself helps you learn to love and accept your partner as a separate person.

And because most of the emotional wounds we’ve experienced in life occurred in our relationships with others, our present relationships often serve as mirrors, reflecting back the wounds and patterns we’ve picked up over the years.

This means that whatever relationship difficulties you’re experiencing are actually an opportunity for you and your partner to better understand each other AND yourselves, so you can heal and grow – together.

When all is said and done, marriage counseling and couples therapy can be one of the best investments you ever make in your relationship.

In fact, studies show that at least 70% of couples who’ve been in couples counseling and therapy have found it helpful, not only to resolve current conflicts but also in equipping both partners with the skills they need to handle future challenges more effectively.

If you and your partner are ready to learn the tools and skills to communicate more effectively, resolve conflicts, understand one another on a deeper level, and feel a greater sense of connection, contact us today to schedule a free, 15-minute, initial phone consultation. We look forward to speaking with you and helping you create a healthier, more fulfilling relationship you truly love!

Finding the Best Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy for You

But can we really help you?

While we use a wide variety of couples counseling and therapy techniques depending on each client’s needs and goals – including approaches like Collaborative Couples Therapy, Behavioral Couples Therapy, the Gottman Method, and Emotionally Focused Therapy – the most important elements in marriage counseling and couples therapy are your willingness to do the work and the trusting relationship that you develop with your therapist.

Couples therapy is not a band-aid and you’ll get out of it what you’re willing to put in. Creating a relationship that really works requires ongoing effort, attention, and work!

And no one therapist is the right or best therapist for every couple.

If you and your partner don’t feel comfortable being open and honest with your therapist, you’ll find it next to impossible to do the work necessary to heal and grow.

Couples Counseling & Therapy FAQs

How Long Does Couples Counseling & Therapy Take?

A typical couples therapy session lasts 50 minutes and involves open discussions guided by the therapist. Some couples benefit from longer sessions, and this can be arranged. Sessions are characterized by a focus on communication, understanding each partner’s perspective, and working towards mutually agreed-upon goals. The duration of therapy varies depending on the couple’s needs and progress but often spans several weeks or months.

Is One Type of Couples Counseling or Therapy Better than Another?

The best type of therapy for couples depends on their specific needs and goals.

All of our therapists use techniques like Collaborative Couples Therapy, Behavioral Couples Therapy, the Gottman Method, and Emotionally Focused Therapy to address whatever is needed in the moment, and they have all proven effective.

However, regardless of any specific approach to couples therapy, just making the time and space to focus on your relationship with a third party there to help you feel heard and respected can make a huge difference.

Do You Work with Couples in Non-Traditional Relationships?

Whether you’re exploring non-traditional relationship dynamics, such as open, polyamorous, or kinky relationships, or seeking to deepen a more traditional partnership, our experience and training span a diverse range of sexual orientations and relationship styles, all centered around the crucial element of connection.

Can Couples Counseling & Therapy Really Save a Relationship after an Affair?

In cases of infidelity, couples therapy provides a space to process emotions, understand the factors that led to the betrayal, and work on rebuilding trust. Therapy focuses on open communication, addressing underlying relationship issues, and developing strategies for healing trust and moving forward, if both partners wish to. It’s a crucial step in determining the future of the relationship and helping both partners heal.
