Couples therapy is a process. Couples learn to communicate better; learn how to resolve past and current conflicts and resentments; and deepen their connection. Differences in perspective are discussed and healthy solutions surface and are implemented in their lives.
Couples therapy may involve some educational aspects where skills are taught and homework exercises are assigned to help you integrate new patterns into your lifestyle. Various issues can be addressed in couples therapy, including but not limited to hurt, resentment, substance abuse, infidelity/affairs, anger management and lack of closeness.
