What is couple’s therapy?
Couples therapy focuses on issues in your relationships – or lack of them – past or present. You may want to explore an aspect of your relationship or move the relationship to a more comfortable place, whether you are experiencing moments of growth, challenges or if your relationship is in a crisis.
