About Couples Therapy
Couples therapy involves having both partners in the room working together. The path of the treatment will be determined by the needs of both individuals. Sankofa Psychological Services strives to create a safe environment to explore the issues which often arise during the course of a relationship. This may include conflict over money, sexual relationships, spiritual differences, time spent together, parenting, negotiating household responsibilities, and infidelity, among others.
Individuals bring to relationships their specific expectations, wants, fears, needs, and experiences. Couples counseling serves as a vehicle for strengthening the partners to better understand themselves and each other. Conflict is a natural part of any relationship, and through the assistance of a trained therapist the couple can learn to communicate more openly, and as a result build a stronger partnership.
