During couples counseling, it is common to include some individual sessions with each partner so each may focus on his or her own processes and needs within the couple relationship. However, there may be times when one or both partners may wish to pursue individual therapy to work on personal issues unrelated to the partner relationship. In this case, our clinicians would provide you with a referral to an individual therapist while we continue couples counseling together.
