Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling

At Lighthouse, we understand that relationships require intentionality, nurturing, understanding, and sometimes professional support. We also know that couples therapy is not just for troubled relationships; it can benefit any couple seeking to enhance their connection, improve communication, and strengthen their bond. Our counselors work with couples at any stage of their relationship, from dating to marriage, to create a solid foundation for a thriving partnership.

We view your relationship as our client. Therefore, our counselors provide a safe and neutral space where both partners can express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns openly. We facilitate open and honest communication, helping you both feel heard and understood. Our goal is to create a non-judgmental environment that fosters empathy, understanding, and growth.

Our counselors will help you develop essential communication skills. Some of these skills include active listening, expressing needs and desires, and resolving conflicts respectfully and constructively. With improved communication, you can break through barriers, find common ground, build trust, and work together to overcome challenges, and deepen your connection.

Trust and intimacy are vital aspects of a thriving relationship. If trust has been broken or intimacy has waned, our counselors can guide you through the healing process. We provide tools and strategies to forgive, build trust, reignite intimacy, and create a stronger foundation for your relationship.

How do we work with couples?

Our couples counselors dedicate themselves to helping you and your partner build a loving and connected relationship. Whether you’re facing communication challenges, struggling with conflict, seeking to deepen your connection, or preparing to take the next step in your relationship, couples therapy can provide the guidance and tools you need. At Lighthouse, we tailor our approach to meet the unique needs of each couple. Some common modes utilized are Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), the Gottman Method, Prepare/Enrich,  and S.Y.M.B.I.S. (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts).
