Couples Therapy is geared towards empowering individuality, while also cultivating and respecting a new identity as a couple. This couples therapy will support the couple in improving communication and trust to allow for a solid foundation.
We all bring into new relationships pieces of old relationships. Sometimes, it is necessary to resolve old relationships in order to move forward in our current ones. Those relationships may be previous romantic relationships or even our relationships from our family of origin. We often find ourselves repeating patterns or similar behaviors of our parents, also called “learned behaviors”. A component of couples therapy is to identify learned behaviors or generational patterns and identify new relationship goals.
