Why Couples Therapy Is a Good Idea

The honeymoon is over, but not for lack of trying.

You’re starting to realize that baggage from the past is holding you and your partner back.

You find yourself pulling away or losing your temper even when you just want to feel close and connected.

Your sex life is lacking.


If you don’t do something soon, you’re likely to keep making the same mistakes over and over. 

Couples Therapy can help. 

Investing in your relationship is an investment in your overall happiness and well-being.

Can Couples Therapy Save a Relationship?

One or both of you have a history of trauma. Substance abuse may have created trust issues and painful memories. But, even though you are trying constantly, you can’t seem to talk things out and let it go.

These are things that a skilled trauma-informed couples therapist can help you heal.

But, of course, it’s not all just up to the therapist.

All Things That Matter in Life Require a Little Work

Disney movies might give the impression that Happily Ever After is simple. But, in reality, it takes some work. An investment in your relationship is an investment in you. Studies* show that having strong relationships is the #1 factor in life happiness and fulfillment

Some tips that help ensure couples therapy works for you include:

  • Readiness for change
  • Openness
  • Honesty
  • Able to follow through
