Working as a Couple

Home/Working as a Couple

As noted on the Our Approach page, our therapists take an Attachment Theory approach to counseling. That holds true in individual and couples counseling.

For the couple, this means addressing the individual issues that block safe, secure attachment as well as learning new ways of communicating and new ways of thinking about your relationship.

Many couples argue over the “things” of life and miss out on the deeper issues of feeling heard, feeling understood, trusting and feeling known by your significant other. When we have these present in the relationship, the “things” of life are small and the safety and security we feel in the relationship help us to work through the small things with understanding and patience.

This is the goal of couples therapy – safety and security in the relationship – and the way we practice it at Counseling & Recovery Partners has proven successful for many couples.
