Couple Therapy

Couple therapy focuses on the intimate relationships between people. Research has shows that most couples wait too long before seeking help. Contact us now if you are wondering about the health of your relationship before you get stuck in harmful patterns.

The couple therapists at Lakeview have advanced training to help you and your partner(s) identify negative cycles in your relationship and find new ways of understanding and connecting with each other. We can help couples with frequent arguments, sexual intimacy problems, transition to parenthood, remarriage, infidelity, emotional estrangement, separation and divorce, blended family challenges, infertility, adoption, cultural and identity concerns, empty-nest transition, and financial conflicts.

Signs that your relationship may need help include: recurring arguments that feel overwhelming, feeling misunderstood, feelings of loneliness or disconnection, recurring thoughts of leaving the relationship, thoughts of having an affair, a sense of helplessness, or feeling resentment. We use an integrative approach that combines a psychodynamic approach with practical, directive suggestions. To read more about the psychodynamic aspects of our approach, here is an article by our colleague Carla Leone. Our integrative approach to couple work will explore each partner’s history to better understand current patterns, slow down cycles of conflict to prevent escalation, and improve communication.
