How Do I Know If My Partner And I Need Couples’ Counseling or Couples’ Sex Therapy?

Maintaining a healthy, intimate relationship with your partner can be a continuous challenge.  Recurring obstacles or stagnation in communication or sexual activity is common and healthy growth and progress in a partnership is crucial and sometimes painful and confusing.  Balancing the growth between two individuals and the couple as a team can be tricky.  Couples therapy provides a common neutral space and fair perspective from an outside mediator.  This can be just the difference a couple needs in order to break down barriers in communication and strive for a new understanding.  Whether it be a desire to rekindle sexual activity, resolve a pending conflict, or just seeking support in a difficult transition, a professional couples’ therapist can be the right choice in creating a healthy future for your partnership.

My Partner And I Have Problems In Bed. What Is Couples Sex Therapy Like?

Couples’ sex therapy offers the opportunity to recognize and define what problems might exist between partners and what goals they would both like to work towards.  A Certified Sex Therapist (CST) can help recognize issues and potential solutions that might otherwise be hidden from view within a couples’ relationship dynamic.  Clinical experience in dealing with such a personal and potentially awkward subject to discuss can lead to a more comfortable and realized intimacy and effective form of communication.  Our CST professionals, whether they be psychologists, Marriage and Family Therapists, or Clinical Social Workers, are all members of the American Association for Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).  Whether it be uneven sex drives or sexual boundaries between partners, buried trauma, or a sense of disconnectedness, professional judgement-free treatment can help a couple reinvent the thriving sexlife they envision.

How Long Should We Try Couples Therapy Before Giving Up? Our Relationship Feels Like Such A Struggle.

Depending on how willing a couple is in collaborating with their therapist, their level of commitment, respect, and their transparency in discussion will all affect how successful their therapy sessions are.  Most couples start to see results in 6-8 sessions. Of course every relationship is different and each couple is made up of two complex individuals, each with a unique perspective, history, sensitivity and vulnerability.  Longer sessions of 2-3 hours can lead to more profound discussion and consistent meetings maintain the dialogue fresh in everyone’s mind in order to maximize time in each session.

How Much Does Couples Counseling Cost?

While all of our counseling options are designed to be effective support for you and your partner, rates depend on scheduling and length of sessions.  All of our therapists are certified professionals dedicated to helping you reach your goals, and as independent counselors, each has their own rate based on experience and career credentials.  It is your option and responsibility to communicate with your insurance provider and make claims as we do not work directly with insurance companies and cannot guarantee reimbursement.
