If you have ever gotten to the end of an argument and wondered, “How did that happen?” you are not alone and may even at times feel stuck. Whether you are in the midst of a major life transition, period of stress, or are experiencing a slow loss of closeness, your most significant relationship can be a source of great joy as well as sorrow. Seeking couples therapy can help you and your significant other improve conflict resolution, intimacy, and communication.
ACC couples therapists have specialized training using empirically supported couples therapy methods such as Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and the Gottman Method. Our therapists will take a personalized approach when working with you while integrating research-driven methodology. If you are facing issues such as extramarital affairs, conflict, sexual intimacy, adoption, divorce, or parenting support, we are here to help.
Engagement is an exciting and sometimes stressful period of transition for many couples. ACC therapists are here to help you navigate this pivotal life change and transition well into marriage. We will guide you through the PREPARE-ENRICH curriculum, which is an empirically supported premarital program to help you and your fiancé build a stronger foundation for marriage. We will address issues like conflict resolution, communication, and dealing with family and friends. We appreciate you considering us during such an important time in your life.
Familial relationships often provide us with the most love and support but can also be a source of tremendous pain when these relationships no longer function in a healthy way. Family counseling may be an important option for you to consider if tensions amongst your family members have been rising, a significant loss has impacted your family, or one member seems particularly unhappy and you’d like to find a better way to support him/her. Many parents seeking family therapy describe feeling as if they have been “walking on eggshells” in their homes and are unsure what else to try to make things better. Meeting with a family therapist will help you and all of your family members find a healthier way to interact with one another, generate greater understanding, and decrease conflict. ACC family therapists also provide counseling for co-parenting, blended family issues, loss and transition, chronic illness support, and difficulty parenting.
Family therapists often recommend that your entire immediate family attend the initial session and will determine who should attend subsequent sessions following the initial appointment. For more information about family therapy, please visit AAMFT.
We look forward to your call and are happy to answer your questions to get you set up for your initial appointment.
