Who Should Pursue Couples Therapy?

A common question is, “Who is couples therapy for?” Generally speaking, couples therapy is for any and all couples, in that it can prove beneficial to any relationship. For example, a newly engaged couple might decide to work with a premarital counselor to improve their communication before marriage. Another couple, say two people who have been married for 45 years, might use couples therapy to find that spark or connection again. In the same breath, two individuals who have been dating for a mere several months can find value in working with a couples therapist, too!

Couples therapy can help couples to work through identifiable issues as well as prevent or resolve future issues. Common issues or areas of concern, include:

  • Sexual issues
  • Communication errors
  • Jealousy
  • Trust issues
  • Lack of connection
  • Parenting disagreements
  • Financial concerns
  • Infidelity
  • Addiction
  • Emotional distance

It can also serve as a checkup for a happy, healthy couple that wants to ensure their relationship maintains its strength.

What Is Couples Therapy? How Does It Work?

Couples therapy is just as it sounds! It is a form of psychotherapy in which a therapist helps couples resolve any conflicts and improve their relationship as a whole. Couples therapists have specific experience and licensure in helping couples; for example, couples therapy is typically led by a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).

There are various therapeutic interventions used in couples therapy, of which will depend on the given couple’s needs and therapy goals. That said, couples therapy almost always incorporates the following elements:

  1. Focus on an identified problem, such as lack of intimacy, jealousy, etc.
  2. Involvement of both partners to achieve the therapy goals
  3. Solution-focused interventions that are identified in the early stages
  4. Treatment objectives, of which are agreed upon by all parties

If you and your partner decide to pursue couples therapy, your first session will likely involve answering basic questions about the history as well as the current state of your relationship. Then, your couples therapist will help you to clearly identify the issues at hand and establish goals as well as a plan for treatment. In each session, they will work with you and your significant other to improve health and happiness in your relationship.

Counseling with Keshanda Garland

★★★★★
My session with Ms. Garland focused on identifying my life events and how they impacted how I previously dealt with diagnosed type 1 bipolar disorder. She listened and engaged with me as I vocalized my immediate fear and overwhelming stressors. Ms. Garland sat with me to customize coping skills for my triggers, including mania during parenting young children and going through a divorce. I have more confidence in how I’ll handle these problems with continuing with the aid of my prescriptions medicines. Thank you! Highly recommend for a compassionate and personal experience.
