Couples therapy works to create a safe space to identify negative interaction cycles and/or seek transformative growth through goals set by the couple. Goals can include developing healthier ways of communicating, setting boundaries and expectations, and dealing with conflict.
Therapy can be beneficial for couples due to the complex nature of relationships. Couples will face ups and downs, and everything in between. These may include but are not limited to issues, conflicts, and life events (e.g., marriage, starting a family, infidelity, divorce, retirement).
