How Does It Work?
Marriage, couples, and family counseling, often known as family therapy, is a type of psychotherapy that helps family members or couples improve communication, resolve conflicts, and foster healthier relationships. The therapy can involve all family members or just those willing or able to participate.
The process begins with an initial assessment where the therapist gets to understand the family dynamics, the nature of the problems, and the goals for therapy. This assessment may involve all family members or, in the case of couples therapy, both partners.
Subsequent sessions are structured around addressing specific issues. The therapist may employ various therapeutic techniques based on the nature of the problem, the specific goals of therapy, and the model of therapy that the therapist uses. These techniques include facilitating open and honest communication, helping family members understand each other’s experiences and emotions, teaching conflict resolution skills, and providing strategies to improve support and collaboration within the family or relationship.
The aim is not to assign blame to individuals but to work together as a unit to solve the issues. The therapist acts as a neutral third party who can provide perspective, guide the conversation, and help the family or couple develop new strategies for relating to each other.
In the case of couples or marriage counseling, the focus may be more on improving communication, rebuilding trust, resolving marital conflicts, or dealing with issues like infidelity, sexual dissatisfaction, or disagreements over parenting styles.
For how long?
The length of therapy depends on the complexity of the issues, but generally, family therapy is often shorter than individual therapy, with most interventions lasting less than six months.
At Dr. John G Kuna and Associates, we provide in-person and online family, marriage, and couples counseling, making it easier for families to access the support they need, regardless of your location.
Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy
Marriage counseling, also known as couples therapy, is a specialized field of psychotherapy aimed at helping couples understand, navigate, and resolve conflicts to improve their relationship. At Dr. John G Kuna and Associates, we see marriage counseling as a journey to rediscover mutual understanding, love, and harmony. It’s a platform where both partners can express their feelings, thoughts, and concerns in a safe, neutral environment under the guidance of a skilled therapist.
Our marriage and couples counselors use various therapeutic techniques to foster open communication, enhance mutual respect and empathy, and develop effective problem-solving strategies. Whether navigating a challenging period, seeking to resolve ongoing disputes, or simply wanting to enhance your relationship, marriage counseling can provide the tools and guidance necessary for growth and improvement. With both in-person and online therapy options, we make this journey toward a stronger, healthier relationship convenient and accessible for all couples.
