Q: What should I expect during my couples therapy appointments?


A: We understand that starting couples therapy can feel like a big step, and we're here to guide you through what to expect during your sessions. Different providers may have varying approaches, but here's a general overview to help you prepare:


1. Therapeutic Approaches

   - Therapists may use different methods such as open conversations, structured activities, or worksheets to address the issues at hand.

   - Some therapists blend these approaches based on what works best for you and your partner.


2. Initial Sessions

   - The first few sessions are typically used by therapists to understand your communication styles, comfort levels, and areas where you both may need support.

   - Therapists may adjust their approach to ensure it aligns with your preferences and needs.


3. Therapeutic Environment

   - Therapy appointments should provide a welcoming and non-judgmental space for you and your partner.

   - While the process may challenge you to explore difficult emotions or experiences, the goal is to help you understand and navigate through them effectively.


4. Supportive Guidance

   - Even when discussing uncomfortable topics, your therapist's role is to offer encouragement and maintain a safe environment for open dialogue.


Remember that each therapy journey is unique, and our aim is to support you both through this process with understanding and care. If you have any specific concerns or preferences, feel free to discuss them with your therapist for a more tailored experience.
