Beginning couples therapy may be one of the most important journeys a person can undertake.  A crucial ingredient in this process includes the development of a safe, caring and nonjudgemental environment.  Frequent goals for couple therapy include:
  • improved communication skills
  • enhanced problem-solving strategies
  • healing past disappointments in the marriage
  • understanding the impact of family relationships on the current issues

 A careful assessment of family history and a determination of specific goals will be the first step.
