We are asked this question a lot! It really depends on the couple and the problems occurring in the relationship. That said it takes about 3 months of weekly couples therapy to see significant behavior changes in a relationship. Most of our couples stay in couples therapy from 6 months to 1 year. When issues like infidelity are present it often takes longer. The goal of couples therapy is to learn how to work through problems so well together you don’t need us anymore! Make sure you practice what you learn in therapy even outside of sessions!

Yes we do! Some couples benefit from attending couples therapy every other week instead of weekly. Biweekly sessions can be 1 hour or 1.5 hours.

Yes! Couples therapy is structured so both partners are present. If meeting separately is necessary your therapist will tell you. Therapists do not keep secrets in couples therapy so any information provided will be shared with your partner in an effective way.

Yes. Everything discussed in session is confidential information and will not be shared with anyone. All Telehealth sessions are conducted on a HIPAA compliant secure platform to guarantee confidentiality.

Yes. Our therapy programs are evidence-based and meant for a wide range of couples. This includes couples in distress (high-conflict couples), couples who aren’t communicating effectively, and couples who are having difficulty maintaining intimacy after becoming parents. If your partnership is in trouble, and you want to get your marriage back on track, we can help.

Yes, including DBT for Couples training, Imago Relationship Therapy, and more. Read more about our training here.  

Anyone can benefit from therapy. It’s a place to process the ebbs and flows of life that we all experience. Therapy can be life-changing, even for the most skeptical. 

While it may be difficult at times, the benefits of therapy greatly outweigh the investment of energy, time, and money. By coming to therapy, you are investing in yourself and the quality of your life.

No. Our goal is to use practical skills and techniques that you can apply every day in real life. Many clients can begin applying these skills and techniques, and start experiencing tangible improvements in just a few sessions. Our goal is for you to take what you learn in therapy and use it for a lifetime. We’re very happy when our clients don’t need us anymore!

Here is information about the Good Faith Estimate:

You have the right to a “Good Faith Estimate” that details the expense of your medical treatment.

Health care providers are required by law to provide an estimate of the price for medical items and services to individuals who do not have insurance or who do not use insurance.

You are entitled to a Good Faith Estimate for the total anticipated cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes fees for medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital stays.

Make sure you get a Good Faith Estimate in writing from your health care provider at least one working day before your medical treatment or item. You can also request a Good Faith Estimate from your health care practitioner, as well as any other provider you choose, before scheduling an item or service.

You have the right to dispute a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate.

Make sure to save a copy of your Good Faith Estimate.

Visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or contact 1-800-985-3059 if you have any questions or would like more information regarding your right to a Good Faith Estimate.

At Couples Therapy Services we specialize with communication and regulating emotions. One of the first skills we teach our couples in learning about primary and secondary emotions. A primary emotion (fear, sadness, shame, jealousy, etc) in what you feel first, biologically. A secondary emotion (anger) is often a reaction to the primary emotion. It is almost impossible for our partner to truly validate us if we are only communicating the secondary emotion. We need to learn about our own emotions, what they are, where they come from and communicate this to our partner so they can really understand. This process helps build connection and trust.

Yes! At Couples Therapy Services, a relationship is a relationship. Love is love. We specialize in helping all couples whether gay, straight, partnered, or married improve their quality of life. Anyone can benefit from couples therapy. 

Yes. Our combined DBT for Couples and Imago Therapy Class (DBT-IT) is one of a kind! Our DBT for Couples Group is another way for couples to learn and practice skills that can help their relationship thrive. At Couples Therapy Services, we offer many different types of evidence-based treatment plans for couples. Any couple that comes to Couples Therapy Services should be able to find a solution that fits their specific needs.
