Couples Psychotherapy is the treatment of problems that emerge in a committed relationship between two people. The focus of treatment is the relationship rather than either individual.

While an individual session may be provided separately to each partner in the beginning of therapy, most sessions are conducted with both partners present.

Some of the more common reasons couples seek therapy include a feeling of “growing apart,” conflicts about money or child-rearing, infidelity, high-conflict, unproductive or hurtful arguments, major life transitions, dissatisfaction with sex life, desire for greater closeness or to make next-step decisions.
