Couples therapy can help nurture your relationship. Working with a couples therapist can help both partners identify feelings, thoughts, and behaviors that affect your relationship. We can unwind the underlying patterns and help actualize the dreams of both partners.
There are many reasons to begin couples therapy
Do you feel disconnected from your spouse? Sometimes it doesn’t even feel like you know one another, making you feel lonely in your relationship. Have you been struggling to resolve conflict and want to stop arguing with your partner? You want to have peace in your house, but the same fights keep coming up over and over in your relationship.
Has your relationship been affected by an affair? You crave answers to what’s next for your relationship. You crave guidance to help navigate the unclear and often confusing emotions that follow an affair.
As new parents, are you and your partner trying to figure out how to navigate through parenthood AND marriage? You and your spouse may have have different ideas of raising children. So, you may feel under-appreciated or misunderstood by your partner.
Have you wondered if your marriage is heading towards divorce? Even in your head, you don’t want to go there, but you don’t know how to approach all of the problems in your relationship.
If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, you and your partner may need to consider beginning couples therapy. The marriage counselors at our Philadelphia, PA-based therapy practice can help with reconnecting, communicating and restoring intimacy in your relationship.
“We are born in relationship, we are wounded in relationship, and we can heal in relationship.”

Common reasons couples begin marriage counseling
We are passionate about helping couples and improving relationships. And our marriage counselors believe in the power of strong, healthy relationships. So, we offer sessions for couples looking to create a deeper and lasting relationship.
We believe you can have the relationship you have always desired and we are here to help you! Couples therapy is a proven strategy that allows partners to stay together. Working through their fighting and developing new ways to communicate and connect is how we get there.
Some of the specific things you can expect to gain from couples counseling and/or marriage counseling include:
- Learning new ways to communicate effectively
- Restoring connection and bringing you closer
- Building trust
- Conflict resolution
- Intimacy and connection
- Affair recovery/infidelity
- Reconnecting sexually
- Newer couples/pre-marital counseling
- Bridging emotional gaps
- Millennial relationships
- Postpartum concerns
- Addiction and its impact on the relationship
In addition to couples therapy, our team also specializes in premarital counseling for partners that are moving to the next level in their relationships. Premarital counseling can help you and your significant other improve your relationship by helping you develop better communication skills, learn conflict management, and uncover your shared core values.
Our couples therapists help partners discuss issues that we often help clients with in marriage counseling, too. In sessions, we provide open dialogue on such topics as finances, intimacy, parenting, role expectations, family of origin dynamics, and so much more! This is an early martial investment that is worth every penny.
