Couples often need guidance about how to communicate and problem-solve more effectively, as well as assistance in addressing specific concerns and problems. Couples therapy gives partners a chance to explore challenging relationship questions in a safe environment. It may teach couples how to address ongoing difficulties, enhance intimacy, or how to renew the love they once shared. Couples can learn how to handle differences together, without falling into the traps that lead to resentment, detachment or fighting. Very often, a relationship is not only saved but strengthened. At other times, a couple may decide together to end their relationship; a skilled therapist can help guide them through this process in a way that is loving and respectful. In all cases, Westport Family Counseling strives to be a solution-focused, non-judgmental source of support and education. Our goal is to improve openness, communication and honesty.
