Couples Therapy

What is Couples Therapy?

It takes two to tango and two to have a relationship; however, navigating the relationship dance can be quite difficult at times. On occasion, it may feel as though you are speaking a different language, you aren't on the same page, feel disconnected, or in a never-ending war.


Relationships aren't easy and there is no such thing as a perfect relationship. They take work. Every couple goes through difficult periods that may seem impossible to work through. Whether you are experiencing your first disagreement or it's the 11th hour, it can always be beneficial to seek support. At New Growth Psychology, you can learn to grow together, work through hurts and hang ups, create new and deeper connections, and establish a solid foundation on which to build your relationship.​​


Why Couples Therapy?

The purpose of couples therapy is to help you both on helping a couple work through challenges, connect, understand each other, heal from past or current hurts and develop healthier ways of being with each other. 

Some common relationship issues include:

  • communication 

  • finances

  • sex and intimacy

  • addictions 

  • differing expectations

  • conflict 

  • loss of connection

  • differences in values and upbringing
