What Is Couples Therapy?
There are some misconceptions about what couples counseling is and what it can and cannot do. Some people think couples therapy with our Great Falls, MD clinicians is for those who have had serious, long-term issues in their relationship, such as addiction or infidelity. Many couples think that it is just for those who are facing the end of the relationship and is a last-ditch effort to save the marriage before throwing in the towel.

The therapist will do this by helping the couple to focus on the issue (or issues) in the relationship and help them identify the relationship dynamics at work on how each one of the approaches these issues. During couples therapy in Great Falls, MD, the couple will learn what their own roles are when it comes to where the relationship dysfunctions are, not just their partner’s.
