What Is Couples Therapy?
Couples therapy is a form of psychotherapy that can help you and your partner improve your relationship. If you are having relationship difficulties, you can seek couples therapy to help rebuild your relationship.
“Couples therapy can address a wide range of relationship issues, including recurring conflicts, feelings of disconnection, an affair, issues related to sex, or difficulties due to external stressors,” says Brian Mueller, PhD, a psychologist at Columbia University Medical Center who specializes in couples therapy.
Couples therapy can help you at any stage of your relationship, regardless of marital status, age, race, faith, or sexual orientation.
Some forms of this therapy include marriage counseling, premarital counseling, and family therapy. It is typically a short-term form of therapy.
