What is couples therapy?
Couples therapy at BTW is run by one of our trained therapists in a safe, caring, and confidential setting. In session, the therapist will help the couples better understand themselves and change the parts of their relationship that are problematic. The focus of therapy is on helping the couples explore and work through any feelings, thoughts, worries or behaviors the couples want to change within themselves and their relationship. Together, both the therapist and couple set the goals of therapy and work to achieve those goals.

How can couples therapy help me?
Most people begin couples therapy for a variety of reasons (for example, relationship concerns, anger, coping with grief or trauma, infidelity, depression, substance use, etc.). Your therapist will support the couple on their path to wellness by helping them overcome any challenges they are facing so they have the best relationship possible.

How long does couples therapy last?
Couples therapy sessions typically meet on a weekly basis and last for 50 minutes. Depending on the couples’ needs and progress on their goals, the length of therapy may be over the course of a few sessions or over numerous years.

How many people will there be in session?
Typically, only the therapist and couple are present in session. At times, the therapist may ask for others that are significant to the relationship (for example, a mother or best friend) to temporarily join the session.
