Couples Counseling

Becoming Better Together

Each person comes to the partnership with a set of unique unconscious expectations and often these are met, at least initially. Yet, we are all constantly changing and growing, and we do not always change in the same way or at the same time. 

 

We fall into patterns established early in our life and then over the course of our relationship.  In many ways, these behavioral patterns help to strengthen a relationship, but they can also present potential challenges where a couple will become stuck.  Think of that "thing" that has come up again and again.

If left unaddressed, these patterns can lead to communication difficulties, a lack of connection, and mistrust.  Illness, parenting strategies, and major life transitions can also impact a couples connections and behaviors. 

Through a process oriented approach, learn to identify your unconscious rules, values discrepancies, and automatic responses that lead to many of these issues so that you are aware of them and can find better ways to connect, align, and work through them.

Insurance plans do not cover couples counseling/marriage counseling.  However, being able to fully pay out of pocket is not always an option when help is needed and one of the main goals of AQAL Therapies is to provide a low budget option in working with a therapist in training. 

 

An intern counselor is one who has completed the required coursework, is required to provide services to meet their hourly requirement to sit for licensing, and has been brought on to help decrease waitlist time and to increase access to services.
