Couples Therapy


Couples therapy has become increasingly popular in recent years, and for good reason. Going to couples therapy can improve any relationship, not just ones on the brink of destruction. Every relationship has its problems to work through, often based in a lack of trust or communication. Working with a therapist can help bring you and your partner together in ways that you may have never thought possible. If you’re looking for quality couples therapy in NYC, Douglas Psychotherapy, PC, has you covered. Psychotherapy is a treatment method in which you and a therapist work together through discussion. In couples psychotherapy, both partners sit down with a therapist, who then can facilitate a caring and balanced conversation between the two. Through discussion, the couple can start to understand each other better and can learn ways to keep that communication going outside of therapy. There are a few different types of couples psychotherapy out there, but at DPS we mostly use emotionally focused therapy, or EFT and the Gottman Method. The primary focus of EFT is to create healthy attachment in adult relationships. Emotional couples therapy is going to look closely at the emotional state of each person and how that may be contributing to discomfort in the relationship. Your therapist is there to ensure that the lines of communication stay open and that each party is being listened to and respected. Honesty from both parties is crucial to healing or, if necessary, choosing to end a relationship healthily. Couples therapy can help you and your partner find an understanding and appreciation for each other that you maybe haven’t had since you first started dating. Couples therapy creates a safe space for each person to release built-up negative feelings, talk through those feelings, and know that their partner is listening. Couples should leave therapy with mutual respect and the tools they need to stay strong and happy together.

Whatever you might be struggling with, family therapy might be the solution you need. Douglas Psychotherapy Services, PC, provides your family with the tools that you need to get through whatever issues you might be facing. The goal of family psychotherapy is to help your family grow together through open conversation with one another, facilitated by a professional.

The family should leave therapy with a greater understanding of and appreciation for each other, along with improved communication and coping skills. Here at Douglas Psychotherapy Services, PC, we offer a few different types of family therapy. Each family is going to have different needs, depending on the circumstance. For those struggling with parenthood, we provide parent coaching. Here, you can lean how to be a better caregiver to a child who may have mental or emotional needs that you weren’t previously aware of.
We also have therapists trained in multi-systemic and functional family therapy, which are both for families of children with issues like aggression and substance abuse. While each type of therapy has its own focus, they all strive for the same outcome: a more connected, encouraging family environment. Family psychotherapy can help bring your family together, giving you the tools to communicate your grievances to each other and allow you to feel comfortable and confident within the family unit. Any family interested in parent coaching, FFT or CBT family therapy would be in great hands with the professionals at DPS.

We work to combine traditional psychotherapy strategies with newer, more evidence-based science to get you and your family to the best possible place.
