Couples therapy FAQs
Have questions? We understand. Here are a few of the most common questions about couples therapy and how it works:
Couples therapy, also known as relationship counseling, is a safe, nonjudgmental space for you and your partner to learn more about each other and discuss all aspects of your relationship — the good parts, the bad parts, and everything in between.
Our relationship therapists in Brooklyn, NY often use counseling to help couples deal with conflict, but you don’t need to be in a rocky relationship to benefit from couples therapy. Even healthy relationships can benefit and become stronger from the insights gained at couples counseling.
Each counselor at North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy takes a personalized approach to your unique relationship. Uncovering your relationship can lead to major breakthroughs, but it can be uncomfortable — you and your partner might feel angry, sad, or frustrated while discussing certain issues.
Your couples therapist is there with you through the entire journey acting as a guide. They have the education and experience necessary to lead you through difficult emotions to find effective solutions.
Relationship counseling helps couples:
- Resolve conflict in a healthy, beneficial manner;
- Communicate needs openly and clearly without anger or resentment;
- Effectively process and work through unresolved issues; and
- Develop a deeper understanding of each other’s needs and who they are.
It’s always good to work on your relationship, but there are times when you might not have the experience or distance necessary to address certain problems. Often, couples wait too long before searching for professional help to save their relationship. Unfortunately, the longer they wait, the harder their relationship can be to repair. Of course, even the most damaged relationship can be fixed — it just makes for more intensive work.
North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy has some of the top relationship counselors in the New York City area. We’re ready to provide the advice and neutral insight needed to handle even the most difficult relationship issues.
It can be very helpful to prepare for your first couples therapy session. First, realize that relationship counseling takes two — both you and your partner must want to fix your relationship before beginning. If one of you isn’t fully invested in working on your relationship, the therapy process won’t be as successful.
It’s also important to know what you want to get out of couples therapy. Before beginning, take some time with your partner to write down some attainable goals and where you want to see your relationship in the future.
Make sure you are ready to speak openly and honestly. Relationship counseling is not the place to hide your past or what you feel. But also realize that being open and honest can be tough. Be prepared to go through a range of turbulent emotions with your partner. No matter what comes up, your North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy counselor will be there to lead you to positive outcomes.
Understand that it is normal to be nervous before your first couples counseling session. But remember, you are in good hands. Our therapists have plenty of experience, and the office is warm and welcoming.
As with most counseling services in New York City, our therapy sessions at North Brooklyn Marriage & Family Therapy are out of insurance networks. That said, the team makes sure that sessions are affordable for couples of all backgrounds and budgets.
Depending on the education and experience of your counselor, each session costs between $80 and $200. All the team’s therapists go through extensive training and have the skills needed to support your relationship and the couples counseling process.
When looking for a couples counselor in Brooklyn, NY, make sure they are a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) by the New York State.
