The program

Our highly effective coaching program for couples in the aftermath of infidelity looking to heal and regain trust.

By the time most couples consider couples therapy, things have gotten pretty tough. If you and your partner are hurting, you aren’t alone. If you are exhausted, frustrated, and thoroughly confused by the conflict and lack of communication, we understand. Feeling stuck is scary. Right now, it may feel like your relationship is too broken or too far gone. 

However, do try to remember, that most people traveling a dark or difficult road fear there is no way forward or safe way back. They can’t embrace or employ the help they need without a helper. Difficult marriages are no exception. To prevent divorce and promote healing, you a need relationship roadmap that moves you toward healing and reconnection.

Couples Therapy: Getting Off The Road to Divorce with a Knowledgeable Guide

Think of this first step as an exit ramp from the rocky path that continues to jar and disrupt the connection between you and your partner. Up until this point, divorce or separation may have seemed the only path toward relief or peace of mind. Perhaps couples therapy is your last-ditch effort at saving the love you long for. 

Whatever your situation, couples therapy starts by allowing your therapist into your struggles. What’s going on? What’s bothering you? What conflicts recur or keep you from feeling heard, comforted, or appreciated?

Directing your attention away from divorce, initially, is necessary for setting new relationship goals. With the support of a therapist, you can start to face your relationship issues with less blame and defensiveness. Counseling becomes a safe place to feel less hopeless or anxious. Instead, you both have a path that feels more empowering and proactive.

Assessing Your Situation and Plotting a New Course

When you’re lost or disoriented, it makes sense to take a good look at how you got where you are. You need clarity and perspective to make good decisions. Consider this period of relationship assessment as the “lay of the land” you need to map out a more productive way forward. Then, reconnecting with your partner is less susceptible to roadblocks and detours. 

In couples therapy, you and your partner aren’t left to figure your relationship out on your own. You have the benefit of compassionate care and objective, engaged expertise. Instead of spinning your relationship wheels or further frustrating yourself with trial and error, your couples therapist can maximize your time and emotional energy. 

How? With a couples assessment tool like The Gottman Checkup. A full couple’s assessment highlights your strengths and weaknesses without judgment. This new perspective offers new direction and new hope. Those two factors are enough to help you and your couples therapist start constructing a plan for healing and a healthier relationship journey.

Transforming the Way You Travel Together

If divorce has been on the table lately, chances are empathy and closeness are not in high supply right now. Yet, it is difficult to establish trust or create meaningful, lasting change without them. Restoring those much-needed aspects of your relationship is vital.

Solidly reconnecting with your partner at this point on your journey requires transformed communication. Couples therapy is devoted to providing tools and strategies for fostering clear, compassionate conversation that gets at the core issues between you. This is accomplished by uncovering what is and isn’t working in your communication.

A qualified couples therapist is experienced in sharing new ideas for conflict management and authentic, mutual support. You and your partner are given time to practice and hone new ways of listening and sharing in session so that you don’t easily fall back into unhelpful habits at home.Image of a smiling couple holding hands and sitting on a bench outside.

Repairing, Maintaining, and Reaching Goals with Confidence

The beauty of structured couples therapy as a road map to reconnection is that it continually assesses you and your partner, being sure that the current approach and tools are working for you. You remain in control of your healing. You decide together how to proceed, adjust, or adapt.

This way, when the time comes, you both feel confident employing your roadmap lessons, as you need them, on your own. You feel able to process issues and set goals together with all you’ve learned in mind. Hopefully, your counseling experience will remind you too, that if you ever need it, help is always available and reconnection is always possible with the right guide.
