Therapy for Couples

When Both Are Leaning In

When two people sign up for "couple's therapy" at ICFT, their relationship is about to get better! The couples in therapy at ICFT are successful, smart, and determined to have a relationship that they enjoy. It is almost never too late to try to have a better relationship. With a renewed commitment to each other and the process of therapy, couples can overcome the hurt and anger which may have developed due to lack of attention given to their relationship.

Every therapist at ICFT has at least a Master’s Degree in Couples Therapy and is specifically trained to do “Couple’s Work”. Our approach involves assessing the current state of your relationship, including the strengths and struggles, as we work with you to gain more satisfying communication, intimacy, and partnership.

This assessment is focused on your relationship patterns while seeking to avoid blaming any one party. Although it is not easy to look in the mirror and make changes, most of the clients at ICFT report they wish they had started the process sooner! Scheduling the first appointment is a big step toward change. We look forward to being a part of your relationship transformation.
