Relationships are Hard. Therapy Can Help.

Relationship psychotherapy is counseling for couples (premarital, married / partnered, or separated / divorced) and those in open, polyamorous and polycule relationships. In relationship psychotherapy, two or more adult clients work with a trained mental health therapist in a series of safe, affirming, and confidential sessions.

Relationship therapy is collaborative and uses multiple therapeutic tools to help clients learn more about each other – to uncover relationship problems and patterns and their source(s), and help create communication strategies to move forward more effectively. Relationship Therapy can help partners:

  • Build intimacy and resolve relationship crises
  • Understand the priorities, pain and needs of people with whom you are in a relationship
  • Re-establish connections and trust, set boundaries
  • Resolve conflicts, communication problems
  • Identify patterns of conflicts and their underlying sources
  • Need your help with a new bullet about sexual orientation / gender expression & identity, help when one partner in a relationship comes out or is experiencing issues related to expression of their true self… not sure how to structure it
  • Navigate transitions: such as when someone in the relationship is exploring gender expression and identity, or sexual orientation
  • Discuss sex & intimacy, fertility / infertility, pregnancy / postpartum, infidelity
  • Explore kink & sex positivity
  • Navigate the intersectionality of racial, cultural, religious or ethnic identities
  • Communicate effectively regarding stressors such as money, moving, children, jobs, extended family, etc.
