Couples have various ideas and even fears about what couple therapy is and is not...
Couple therapy does not involve taking sides with one partner, blaming a partner, or telling either partner they are right or wrong.
Couple therapy involves evaluating the relationship between partners, identifying negative patterns of interactions that get couples stuck, and creating positive interactions that deepen and strengthen the bond between partners.
In couple therapy, the relationship between partners is viewed as the client and is given the utmost respect and care.
