Couples therapy, also known as couples counseling or marriage counseling, is a form of therapy that focuses on improving the relationship between two people. It can be helpful for couples who are experiencing communication problems, conflicts, or other challenges in their relationship. The goal of couples therapy is to help couples understand each other better, communicate more effectively, and develop stronger and healthier relationships.
There are many benefits of couples therapy. One of the most important benefits is that it can help couples improve their communication skills. Communication is the foundation of any healthy relationship, and couples who struggle with communication often find themselves facing other challenges in their relationship as well. By working with a therapist, couples can learn how to communicate more effectively, listen to each other, and express their feelings and needs in a constructive way.
Another benefit of couples therapy is that it can help couples resolve conflicts. Every relationship has its ups and downs, and disagreements are a natural part of any partnership. However, when conflicts are not resolved in a healthy way, they can lead to resentment, anger, and other negative emotions. Couples therapy can provide a safe space for couples to explore their conflicts and work together to find solutions that are mutually beneficial.
Couples therapy can also help couples improve their emotional connection. Many couples find themselves feeling disconnected from each other over time, especially as the stresses of life take their toll. In therapy, couples can learn how to reconnect emotionally, express affection, and create a stronger bond.
Additionally, couples therapy can help couples improve their intimacy. Sexual intimacy is an important part of many relationships, but it can be challenging for couples to maintain a satisfying sexual connection over time. In therapy, couples can learn how to communicate their sexual needs and desires, explore new ways to express their sexuality, and improve their physical connection.
Finally, couples therapy can help couples improve their overall relationship satisfaction. When couples are able to communicate effectively, resolve conflicts, improve their emotional connection, and enhance their intimacy, they are more likely to feel satisfied with their relationship. This can lead to increased happiness, improved mental health, and a stronger sense of partnership.
If you are considering couples therapy, it is important to find a therapist who is experienced in working with couples. Look for a therapist who has specialized training in couples therapy, and who has a track record of success in helping couples improve their relationships. It is also important to be open and honest with your therapist about your relationship challenges and goals, and to be willing to actively participate in the therapy process.
Family therapy helps family members improve communication, disrupt negative patterns, resolve conflicts, and create space for healing conversations. Every family is different, and every particular situation is different. Our qualified family therapists will meet with you where you are in your journey, and help you find a path forward.

Child & Teen Counseling
Like adults, some teenagers and adolescents need to engage with therapy. Covid-19 and the related disruptions brought many latent mental health struggles to the forefront, and young people at times are "just trying to survive." The chaos of post-pandemic life means many teenagers need extra help dealing with school stress. For some young people, their experience includes challenges they should never have to face, including, bullying, the loss of a relationship, substance use, self-harm, and more. Others need help naming, verbalizing, and working through their feelings about family or social issues; this is intensified in situations where there are acute challenges at home. Therapy for teens focuses on building self-esteem, learning social-emotional skills, improving relationships and communication. Progress Counseling has therapists who specialize in the treatment of teenagers are trained and experienced at helping adolescents develop their own health-centered practice, develop skills, and improve their effectiveness in relationships and communication.
